Problem is that very few women comedians are funny. ... :cool:
Not many I can think of over the years.....Paula Poundstone, Sarah Silverman's okay, Joan Rivers was good, Carol Burnette, Chelsea Handler, Amy Shumer,....
1948
I thought Paula Poundstone was one of the best standup comics ever. She had some kind of scandal I don't remember the details but she just disappeared.

Women comedians have trouble attracting a male audience because their act is mainly just bitching and complaining about everything.
If a guy has a wife or a girlfriend, he can hear plenty of that at home without going to a comedy club to hear more of it. ... :cool:

Nikki Glaser is one of my favorites. Here she was a couple years ago
on Conan.

She's funny. We need more funny comedians, gender doesn't really matter to me (in comedy, that is!).

Yes !!!
Men have far more talent in the art of humor
I have rarely ever meet a women who was funny
Very few can be. And of those who are successful, most are not funny. It is the same droll look with everyday comments and a percentage of the comments being snide.
