What Women Do You Find Funny Today?
For the first time, maybe ever, I find a lot of women funny. The two women on BROAD CITY are funny. Tina Fey, although making too many bad movies, is funny. Amy Poehler and Amy Schumer are funny. Now the rap on all of them might be that they are vulgar. But so are most male comedians so I don't credit that. Although I don't find Lena Dunham as personally funny-she writes funny so that counts for me. Kristen Schaal (LAST MAN OF EARTH) works for me as does Sarah Silverman. Julie Louis Dreyfus is perhaps the best of them all. Also Anna Chlumsky from VEEP.
Sharon Horgan from CATASTROPHE is great. So too Melissa McCarthy,. Ellie Kemper from THE UBREKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT. There are a lot.
Now supposedly a lot of men don't care for funny woman but I bet you can name currently funny woman.
