Nothing Funny Ever Happens to Me (Carol Leigh aka Scarlot Harlot)

This was an old appearance on The TWIT show (Tucson Western International Television) circa 1985, actually in another persona altogether…about my experience trying to do stand up comedy. Sorry it’s not funny 🙁

  1. Dear Carol / Scarlot,

    I hope this message finds you well.

    I recently learned about zines that were put together by women who were involved with the Exotic Dancers’ Alliance in the early 90s (or rather, in the years leading up to the founding of the EDA).

    Would you by chance know if these zines are housed in any special collections in the Bay Area and if they are available for viewing by researchers? I am writing my dissertation about feminism/activism in SF strip clubs since the 60s (and trying to focus on women of color and/or queer/trans women) and would love to view zines from the 90s era related to the activism that was underway at the time. I am also trying to track down the zines that were produced by the dancers at the Lusty Lady about which I read in Jill Nagle’s anthology which also features you.

    If you have any ideas for me, I would greatly appreciate hearing them.
