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.

Although he didn't know professional success right from the start, he became more appreciated by the public after his string of comedy specials, Live at Beacon Theater and Louie were released. Nevertheless, it is the awesome stand-up comedies that have captured the hearts of fans forever. Let's take a look at some of Louis C.K.'s most memorable quotes:

Best Quotes by Louis C.K.:

1. When I was younger, I lied all the time, because once you understand the power of lying, it’s really like magic because you transform reality for people.

3. You’ll be fine. You’re 25. Feeling [unsure] and lost is part of your path. Don’t avoid it. See what those feelings are showing you and use it. Take a breath. You’ll be okay. Even if you don’t feel okay all the time.

4. I don’t stop eating when I’m full. The meal isn’t over when I’m full. It’s over when I hate myself.

Louis C.K.

5. I finally have the body I want. It’s easy, actually, you just have to want a really shitty body.

6. I don’t think women are better than men, I think men are a lot worse than women

7. I killed my Facebook page years ago because time clicking around is just dead time. Your brain isn’t resting and it isn’t doing. I think people have to get their heads around this thing. All this unmitigated input is hurting folks.

8. As humans, we waste the shit out of our words. It’s sad. We use words like “awesome” and “wonderful” like they’re candy. It was awesome? Really? It inspired awe? It was wonderful? Are you serious? It was full of wonder? You use the word “amazing” to describe a goddamn sandwich at Wendy’s. What’s going to happen on your wedding day, or when your first child is born? How will you describe it? You already wasted “amazing” on a fucking sandwich.

There are people that really live by doing the right thing, but I don’t know what that is, I’m really curious about that. I’m really curious about what people think they’re doing when they’re doing something evil, casually. I think it’s really interesting, that we benefit from suffering so much, and we excuse ourselves from it.

10. If you’re older, you’re smarter. I just believe that. If you’re in an argument with someone older than you, you should listen to ‘em. Even if they’re wrong, their wrongness is rooted in more information than you have.

Louis C.K.

11.I’m bored” is a useless thing to say. I mean, you live in a great, big, vast world that you’ve seen none percent of. Even the inside of your own mind is endless, it goes on forever, inwardly, do you understand? The fact that you’re alive is amazing, so you don’t get to say “I’m bored.”

12. If you’re a woman and a guy’s ever said anything romantic to you, he just left off the second part that would have made you sick if you could have heard it.

13. When you write from your gut and let the stuff stay flawed and don’t let anybody tell you to make it better, it can end up looking like nothing else.

14. There’s nowhere I won’t go. As long as it’s horribly, horribly true and/or wrong.

15. I’ve started to kind of hate people, and it’s not because I have anything against them. It’s just, I enjoy it. It’s recreation.
