Just the Funny Parts: … And a Few Hard Truths About Sneaking into the Hollywood Boys’ Club Book Review

It’s no secret that the entertainment industry, like most industries is still a boys club.  While women are making incredible strides, we are still far from gender equality.

Nell Scovell has been a television writer for thirty years, working behind the scenes on numerous television shows. Her new memoir, Just the Funny Parts: … And a Few Hard Truths About Sneaking into the Hollywood Boys’ Club, is about her career in Hollywood and how more often than not, she was the only female in the writers room.

I really enjoyed this memoir. Without getting on a soapbox, Ms. Scovell writes about the discrimination she experienced and how there is a glimmer of light in the darkness of gender disparity in Hollywood.

I recommend it.
