7 Female Comedians That Keep Us Laughing ...


It’s always refreshing to watch female comedians amongst a sea of male comedians.

Although, neither group is better than the other, nor should they be classified by their gender.

But, in our defense, it’s hard as women not to root for other women!

Anyhow, these female comedians prove that women can be funny, smart, witty, engaging and pretty all at the same time.

Here are a few female comedians that we have come to love down the years.2

1. Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen DeGeneres

One of my utmost favourite female comedians is Ellen!

Prior to her now popular and hilarious daytime talk show The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ellen starred in the successful, ABC sitcom Ellen.

In addition, Ellen also did stand up comedy up until 2003 when she began her gig as a talk show host.

Personally, my favourite work of Ellen is as Dory in Finding Nemo!

2. Lisa Lampanelli

Whether you hate her or love her for her controversial and over the top humour, Lisa Lampanelli is a well established female comedian who has made a name for herself for her uncensored comedy.

Because of her blunt humour, Lisa can be seen cracking jokes at the roasts of celebrities such as Will Shatner, Donald Trump, Chevy Chase, and more.

3. Alex Borstein

Many of you may know Alex from her days on the comedy sketch series MADtv.

Currently, Alex is the voice of Lois Griffin on the Fox cartoon series Family Guy.2

Trivia: Did you know that Alex has guest-starred in many major television series such as Friends, Frasier and Hot in Cleveland?2

4. Sarah Silverman

Sarah Silverman

Sarah Silverman used to be a writer on one of my favourite shows - Saturday Night Live.

However, that’s not the reason why I like her.

Sarah is a smart and witty comedian who uses satirical humour about ongoing societal issues.

Her comedy style is funny without being offensive and that’s why she’s had a long and prosperous career as a comedian in Hollywood.
