    Fuck you, faggots. Carolla is right. The odds against a particular person, male or female, being funny are pretty high. But the odds are a LOT higher for women than it is for men. It just is. Are there really funny women? Of course. And for every one of them I can name 4-5 guys who are as funny.

    Carlin and Pryor are the top two comics in history to most people. Now name the next 5. Cosby? Rock? Woody Allen, according to some? Louis? Hicks? Murphy? Steve Martin? Robin Williams? Rodney?

    Now name a woman that has a prayer of breaking into that crowd. Maybe, maybe, maybe Joan Rivers or Roseanne. And that's giving them a LOT of vag points.

    Fuck even Comedy Central's tragically flawed "100 Greatest Comics Of All Time" list only has nine women on the list and they were scrounging pretty damned hard to get some of the tail end of those nine on there.

    I know I'm preaching to the choir on Wackbag, but holy FUCK what's wrong with people saying that men are a lot funnier than women, by and large? I mean, yeah, Chyna could beat the shit out of the average guy, but guys are stronger than women as a whole. What the fuck is wrong with admitting that?

    I agree. I hate that we can't admit certain things and the dishonesty.

    Case in point for why women aren't funny.

    Was she trying to say Adam reminds her of Gilbert? Way to prove that broads aren't funny.

    And Carolla isn't exactly cutting edge or high-brow comedy either. I think he's decent enough to be where he's at, and I really liked him a lot with Dr. Drew, but I don't really see why people should give a shit what he thinks.

    Easy. Because in today's PC dominated pop culture, saying that anyone is better at anything in general when it comes to sex, race, whatever, is automatically going to be shouted down or labeled a racist/sexist/bigot/homophobe regardless of the actual facts or reality. That's just the way things are. Adam should've been aware if he wasn't already of the knee-jerk "outrage" to his observation.

    Good for him. He's making headlines for telling people stuff they already know (even if they won't admit it).

    And I enjoyed the part about telling his daughter to be a sitcom writer. That's just sound career advice.

    Its not about him, its about the way these people want to mold society. Its all a part of cultural marxism.

    Once again "feelings" win over the truth.

    Nothing angers me quite like Twitter based reporting.

    There is something disgustingly lazy and pointless about it. It's pure Man On The Street reporting, but without actually getting out of your cubicle and with a giant bias towards celebrities. And celebrities are routinely some of the dumbest people around.

    I agree with you on this. It's petty. But unfortunately, it's also how famous people communicate with the masses these days.

    It's like the "I have a mic, therefore I'm an expert" bit. Just because you're on twitter, doesn't validate your stupid opinion. We still have any pests in here?

    Those dumbasses they quoted, just proved why they, their viewpoint, and most chicks are a black hole for funny.

    I'll even disagree with Adam that Tina Fey and Sarah Silverman are funny. They're not.

    It's obviously possible for women to be funny, but the ones named in that article aren't.

    Eh. They're "industry funny". They work for network execs and critics in NYC and LA, but they flop everywhere else.

    Hitchens put it pretty well.

    i listened to the interview he did with howard last week, and really liked him alot, and he is kind of cutting edge because he isnt afraid to say shit like this. imo he is right, most 'funny' women arent funny at all.

    Amy schumer, that's it. I've seen her do stand up, she's funny as shit. Don't know many writers besides dave attell that's done a good amount of writing.

    Probably upset because he, much like the other "men" on that show, longs to be a chick.

    I looked him up. He's not even a regular cast member- he's a recurring character.

    I've probably laughed out loud at something said by a woman less than 10 times in my life. And never anything close to one of those laughs where it hurts and tears flow. I doubt that level of funny is even possible for a broad.
