I adore comedy. One of my secret dreams involves trying a stand-up routine at some random open mic or amateur night. Until I'm brave enough to do that, I'm happy to spend my time watching and listening to my favorite comedians – and my favorite comediennes. There's this unfounded, ridiculous idea that women aren't funny. That is kind of crap. Women are hilarious. At least, these women are hilarious.
1. Amy Poehler
I'm currently binge watching “Parks and Recreation” for the first time ever, and I want to marry Amy Poehler. I've loved her for years, she's one of the reasons I went back to watching SNL, and her movies never fail to make me giggle. Until watching this, though, I'd never seen a lot of her stand-up. So now I'm binge watching all of that, too, because Amy is a badass, brilliant little spitfire.
