Funny Women

For some reason, people sometimes ask Adam Carolla his opinion on things.

 Adam Carolla doesn’t think women are funny

Carolla said that while he doesn’t hate working with women. “They make you hire a certain number of chicks, and they’re always the least funny on the writing staff,” he said. He also added, “If my daughter has a mediocre sense of humor, I’m just gonna tell her, 'Be a staff writer for a sitcom. Because they’ll have to hire you, they can’t really fire you, and you don’t have to produce that much. It’ll be awesome.'"

Well, he is right about one thing. Baby chickens are just not funny.

Adorable, yes. Funny, not so much.

 You know, I think I can understand why someone who had to grow up with this face:


and that voice might have some resentment against women.

I get it, no one wanted to date you, so fuck 'em all, right?

But women not funny? Are you serious?

Of the 4 funniest people I personally know, three are women. But granted, that's a pretty small sample size. But let's see, just off the top of my head. . .

Samantha Bee
Kristen Schaal
Wanda Sykes
Carol Liefer
Paula Poundstone
Ellen Degeneres
Judy Tenuta
Sarah Silverman
Janeane Garofalo
Kristen Wiig

I mean, have you not seen Bridesmaids?

And if you think Melissa McCarthy was funny in Bridesmaids, and she was, we saw her several years ago at the Groundlings in L.A. and she was HYSTERICAL doing her own material.

And has anyone noticed how much less funny SNL has been since Tina Fey was replaced as head writer with Seth Meyers?  Tina Fey wrote this:

old french whore - MyVideo

Granted, it may not be as clever as making fun of people who've been molested, but I think it's pretty funny.

There are lots of really, really funny women. Have you seen Maria Bamford?

Kerri Kinney-Silver is hilarious.

MAD TV had a whole bunch of really funny women. Like Stephanie Weir

Nicole Sullivan

Alex Borstein

Each and every one of these women is funnier than Adam Carolla.
Oh, and in case you're wondering if Adam Carolla is always an ass, listen to this:

Who's Adam Carolla? Seriously. Never heard of him.

Women comics rock! You tell 'em, Professor!

Never heard of him? Another advantage to being Canadian , I guess.

Now, I'm assuming that this ass goes home to a wife after this show.

...and by the way, this chic has a Dr. in front of her name. AND I can name the axis and allied powers. And I love reading Glamour and Scientific American.

Bite me, Carolla.
