10 Women Who Are Funnier Than Adam Carolla
In case you missed it, podcaster Adam Carolla told The New York Post that “dudes are funnier than chicks.” Blaming a shadowy “they” (The industry? The government?) — who “make you hire a certain number of chicks” — Carolla said the odds were against him that those women would be as funny as their male counterparts. Buzz for his new book, Not Taco Bell Material, successfully generated.
“When you’re picking a basketball team, you’ll take the brother over the guy with the yarmulke. Why? Because you’re playing the odds. When it comes to comedy, of course there’s Sarah Silverman, Tina Fey, Kathy Griffin — super-funny chicks. But if you’re playing the odds? No,” he continued, managing to up the number of people he offended considerably.
Carolla did a third of our job right there, because, indeed, those three women are all funnier than him. He once rose to the height of cable fame with The Man Show and his podcast boasts a Guinness World Record for “most downloaded,” but we can think of lots of comedians — many of them women — who are way funnier than his brand of humor.
