With the subject of male comedian bad behavior being discussed widely 
under the impact of Louis C.K.’s masturbatory aggressions, it is a 
relief to see what a female comedian is capable of. After walking away 
from C.K.’s tasteless and singularly unfunny train wreck of a movie “I 
Love You, Daddy” with a bad taste in my mouth, Noël Wells’s “Mr. 
Roosevelt” is a reminder that sexism in the film and television business 
is not only a crime against women but against all humanity for 
preventing genuine talent to rise to the surface. Wells is not only ten 
times smarter and funnier than C.K. but a welcome relief from the 
dyspeptic strain that is found not only in C.K.’s work but across the 
board with male directors and screenwriters like Judd Apatow, Woody 
Allen, and James Franco.
