Directed by Debra J. Robinson | 1984

With Alice Arthur, Jane Galvin Lewis, Rhonda Hansome, Marsha Warfield

Director Debra Robinson profiles four black female comedians—Alice Arthur, Rhonda Hansome, Jane Galvin Lewis, and Marsha Warfield—who use humor to illuminate the experiences of African-American women. Interweaving footage from their sets with candid interviews, I Be Done Was Is offers an engaging, insightful look at what it means to be a talented, sharp-witted black woman navigating the male-dominated world of stand-up.
