    Hello. I was wonder if anyone could help me with my coursework as I always struggle to find ideas. At the moment I'm considering the language used by comedians and relating it to language and gender. I would much appreciate if someone knows a source for which, I could find transcripts of comedians to help me develop my research.
    If anyone has based their research around the language used by comedians, I would be open to advice and criticism of their experience, of what to do and not do.

    You could consider the comedian 'Miranda' and talk about how she portrays a different view of women in comparison to Lee Evans? So for example Lee Evans describes women as a 'nuisance' when it comes to shopping etc and has a stereotypical view which is very comical to viewers yet it is a very typical view to have, how do the audience respond to his views? On the other hand, Miranda Hart gives us an insight on a women's view from her perspective and they both make it very humorous.

    You can gather data for this by viewing their videos on youtube and picking out what they say about the opposite sex or women in particular and transcribe it. It's really important to gather together as much data and information as you possibly can for the coursework so maybe try and make a pie chart of how many comedians refer to the opposite sex to gain laughs and how the audience respond to this. Good luck!
