Last month, Cameron Esposito released her new special, Rape Jokes, online, for free, asking only for donations to RAINN, a sexual assault charity. A personal exploration of the #MeToo movement, the show was self-financed with the help of friends who donated their time. Within 24 hours, Cameron and her Rape Jokes were being showered with praise. The “unapologetically hard-hitting, bracingly timely hour” (Vanity Fair) was hailed as “blistering, masterful, tragic, hilarious” (New York Magazine) and the “first great stand-up set of the #MeToo era” (The Daily Beast). This afternoon,  Cameron opens up about the show and the reaction she’s received since it went viral.
