# Community and school theater companies frequently have more women than men. Many plays (especially older ones) have more male than female roles. Cross-casting is one possible solution, though GenderFlip or ActingForTwo may also be used. Similarly, sketch comedy groups are frequently all male, so female roles are often handed to men; it helps that many cultures[[note]]Especially the British[[/note]] find men dressed as women inherently funny.

* ''Series/KidsInTheHall'', another all-male troupe, does this also. However, it should be noted that they do not play the crossdressing for comedy. They state that they try to play the women as real as possible and let the humor come from the writing.

* In the cartoon adaption [[GarfieldAndFriends U.S. Acres]], Wade's usually a victim of this in the fairy tale-themed episodes. This may be because, there's no one else around to fit this role to play TheIngenue and the only main female character, Lanolin, is more suited for characters like Disney/{{Mulan}}. Wade's most known example of this trope is in "Snow Wade and the 77 Dwarves."
