I dont know any either. Far from being creative with their jokes most of their material consists of childbirth and menstruation.

Amy Schumer and Bonnie McFarlane are the first two off the top of my head, but there's more than that, especially lately.

Ellen DeGeneres has her moments, but isn't great. I don't care for most other female comedians I've seen, though.

I have heard somewhere that Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are funny people, but I am not sure.


Even the most righteous, logically sound individuals are subject to poor reasoning skills and deluded mindsets.

I find Andy Oshi, Jo Caulfield, Victoria Coren and Sarah Millican quite funny at times.

I like Amy Schumer, can't say I've ever heard Bonnie McFarlane.
I've never seen Sara Silverman do standup but I think she's funny as an actor.

Saying that is like saying that no men are funny, it just makes no sense.

I would say she is the best female comedian. The only one to make me laugh, at least.

The problem many female comedians have is that their act is based on "being a woman", treating themselves as a minority when they are actually the majority. As such most of them are very predictable and not too amusing. Similar to many black comedians who stick to "being black" as their act, or many gay comedians who stick to "being gay"

It is why heterosexual white men tend to be the best comedians. For the simple fact they tend not to base their entire act around a single obvious theme and instead have a broad act with lots of differing humour.

Sure good comedians don't stick to such a blatantly obvious act, but sadly most of the bland comedians do. Or Americans as we call them.

Courtney Cox is pretty funny. I used to find Amy Schumer funny, but she sort of sucks now.

If anyone says Lisa Lampanelli you suck.

Sarah Palin. Her material is just so spontaneous and blown out of proportion.

Jo Brand is certainly one of the worst, in my opinion. I cannot stand that woman.
