Illustrated Comediennes of the Stand-Up Boom: Ellen DeGeneres


In the rush of the 80s-90s stand-up boom, newly-emerging pay-cable began augmenting their normally scheduled soft-core pornography and repeated showing of horror movie Cat’s Eye with stand-up showcases. Dyna Moe watched every one of them and presents a week-long tribute of the comediennes of era.

You all know who Ellen DeGeneres is. I just want to draw attention to the fact that in her 1990 HBO One Night Stand she wore a Fido Dido t-shirt.

Dyna Moe is a NY-based illustrator and non-practicing comic. Her book, Mad Men: The Illustrated World, was the #1 Christmas gift to give people you know nothing about except a TV show you heard they watched a little bit of. Follow her on Twitter here.
