6 Most Hilarious Female Stand Up Comedians

People always feel the need to point out just how rare it is to see female stand up comedians. In a sense, they’re entitled to believe so. It may not look like it, but it’s an industry as male dominated as constructions, plumbing, or any much more traditionally men-associated forms of labor. Could it be because it’s stereotypically believed that women aren’t capable of being funny? It might sound extreme, but it really wouldn’t take much digging to discover that this is a belief some hold firmly on to.

Whatever the truth may be, there’s no denying that the male to female ratio among comedians leans favorably in the direction of the men, but those ladies that manage to break through are absolutely astounding. So, if you’re looking for a gathering of charming, witty, and funny female stand up comedians, look no further than the list below.

#1 Sarah Silverman

Anyone who has some sort of history with SNL must have some form of humor in their blood. The really ironic thing here is how Silverman’s own life seems to have taken a turn and transformed into a sitcom after she was fired from SNL via a fax notice. Since then, her career has been flourishing. Not only is her development as a comedian great, but she also has her name annexed to various film productions and her very own TV show.

#2 Amy Schumer

Inside Amy Schumer might be the first thing that comes to your head, which is definitely a good thing. After all, Comedy Central has been running quite low on content able to draw in viewers. Curtsy of Schumer’s sketch-based humorous program, the channel has been on an ascending curve. Aside from starring in a TV show, she also does greatly on her own when simply prompted with a microphone to perform for a room full of people.

#3 Tig Notaro

It would’ve been impossible for us to not include one of the biggest veterans of all female stand up comedians. You know someone can make absolutely anything funny when one of said topics is something as ruthless and controversial as cancer. Or, on the other extreme, when one of said topics is something as dull and morose as a simple stool.

#4 Ellen Degeneres

Before managing the accomplishment of making daytime talk shows funny, Ellen was actually doing good ole stand up comedy numbers. Needless to say, she was a blast. When you really think about it, all she did was pack all of her natural talent and carry it over to a production studio. No matter the circumstances, there’s no denying that Ellen is one of the best female stand up comedians of all time.

#5 Chelsea Handler

You know that kind of humor that involves poking fun at one night stands, binge drinking, and crying out your sorrows in an ice-cream box on the bathroom floor? It was pretty much created by Chelsea Handler and, eventually, it was rewarded with success. She became a bestselling author, the subject of her own show, and a name to add to the fall of fame.

#6 Shelby Fero

Yes, she doesn’t have her own TV show, but she does have a spectacular social media presence. Aged only 20, Fero has been in the spotlight of an audience ever since the frail age of 18. Thanks to her online growth, she was able to make a swift transition into the real world, which she enthralled with her wits and sense of humor. Given the fact that she’s already written for several TV productions, it’s safe to say that there’s a huge pot of gold waiting for her at the end of the rainbow as far as career prospects go.

Top 10 Funny Bible Verses

Funny Bible Verses

The Bible is a lecture able to tend all souls and it’s often a reading that many lost people turn to in need of guidance. It’s the most stolen book in the world, the most translated one, as well as one of the most massively printed one. Needless to say, it’s huge. Numerous people attempted to find hidden meanings underneath the writings and, centuries later, we are still trying to capture the purest significance of the words of the Scripture. Despite all the seriousness and profound meanings, there are still some funny Bible verses that will make us raise an eyebrow and go, “Huh?”

#1 “Happy shall they be who take your little ones and dash them against the rock!” – Psalm 137:9

In other words, bashing babies against rocks is a good thing. No, that’s not what we’re saying, but this is the literal meaning that someone might extract out of it. Obviously, we really shouldn’t be looking literally into this passage.

#2 “When two men are fighting and the wife of one of them intervenes to drag her husband clear of his opponent, if she puts out her hand and catches hold of the man by his privates, you must cut off her hand and show her no mercy.” – Deut. 25:11

The Bible preaches a lot about peace and forgiveness, but when a woman drags her husband away from a fight by his privates, this is when a line is crossed. You really need to appreciate how specific this scenario is.

#3 “And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head. And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.” – 2 Kings 2:23-24

Long story short, Elijah is mocked by some children for his baldness. He curses them in the name of God, who then sends two bears to attack them. Don’t make fun of bald people.

#4 “It is better to live alone in the desert than with a crabby, complaining wife.” – Proverbs 21:19

What can we say? It seems like the motif of the nagging wife has been around for quite some time.

#5 “Do not eat anything you find already dead. You may give it to an alien living in any of your towns and he may eat it, or you may sell it to a foreigner…” – Deuteronomy 14:21

Yeah, that’s right! Don’t eat any weird dead animals from a street, just sell them to a foreigner or your local alien citizen.

#6 “When the powerful horses went out, they were straining to go throughout the earth. And he said, “Go throughout the earth!” So they went throughout the earth.” – Zechariah 6:7

Apparently all it takes to go through the earth is some good motivation.

#7 “You also took the fine jewelry I gave you, the jewelry made of my gold and silver, and you made for yourself male idols and engaged in prostitution with them.”- Ezekiel 16:17

Don’t turn your jewelry into male idols.

#8 “Here she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.” – Ezekiel 23:20

Seems like Fifty Shades of Grey wasn’t here first.

#9 “As Paul spoke on and on, a young man named Eutychus, sitting on the windowsill, became very drowsy. Finally, he fell sound asleep and dropped three stories to his death below.” – Acts 20:9

Here’s an instance when someone’s speech quite literally bored another to death.

#10 “No one who has been emasculated by crushing or cutting may enter the assembly of the Lord.” – Deut. 23:1

We’re not laughing at the tragedy per se, but rather at the fact that emasculation through crushing was so common that it led to an entire demographic.
