Huh thats odd, I was going to say she was pretty good.
although I havent seen any of the newer female comedians acts
She's just... bland and samey to me. Her entire act is "My husband is married to me and he wishes he wasn't." "I'm overweight." and "I'm a woman.". She has added "I'm getting older" for a few years but still. I won't say she's never made me laugh, but I just don't enjoy her that much. Whenever I see her on Live at the Apollo, Mock the Week or QI, I just despair.
To be entirely fair I've not seen a HUGE amount of the other women I'd listed's material, so they might be just as samey as Jo Brand, but because she's more exposed and famous she grates me more, or at least more often.
Victoria Wood and French and Saunders are also pretty funny, though I don't know how much stand-up they've done.
