Female comedians worldwide
Over the past decade, national clamor for female comedians has suddenly skyrocketed — thanks in no small part to paradigm-shifting female-led comedy Bridesmaids, which certainly came call at 2011. Although we knew women were funny well before that. But somehow, it took a raunchy ensemble of Amy Schumer, Ali Wong, Leslie Jones, and more to convince the remainder of the planet that ladies deserve a good shot when it involves making people laugh.
So, keep reading to ascertain some of the topmost female comedians worldwide.
1. Amy Schumer
The Queen of Raunch reigns. Amy Schumer has seriously appropriated. Her Comedy Central show Inside Amy Schumer certainly gave us a number of the funniest music videos ever, from Milk Milk Lemonade to Girl, You Don’t Need Makeup. On top of a slew of comedy specials, she also hit the large screen with laugh-out-loud comedies, like Train Wreck and that I Feel Pretty. Recently, Amy debuted a self-shot comedy cooking show, Amy Schumer Learns to Cook, during which her chef husband (read: the dream) Chris Fischer tries to show Amz the way to cook. Even when she’s not trying to be funny, she is.
2. Ali Wong
Certainly, you’ll have gotten your first taste of Ali Wong courtesy of fellow female comedians, Chelsea Handler and Amy Schumer. However, we must say, she ** made her mark with Baby Cobra, her first Netflix standup special on stuff like sex, hoarding and feminism. Surprisingly, which she performed whilst seven months preggo (!). Oh, and then, she did it again together with her second bébé with her Hard Knock Wife special. Further, check out her most up-to-date ish? Writing and starring within the Netflix rom-com Always Be My Maybe.
Looks around Fine, we’ll say it. If you ask us, Kate McKinnon is certainly the funniest person on Saturday Night Live rn. Fun facts: She’s not only the longest-serving female cast member, but Kate is also the primary openly lesbian cast member. But when considering her best shit, that is to say, is her impressions. Elizabeth Warren, Hillary Clinton, Justin Bieber, Ellen, Jeff Sessions. Her character work rules too.
4. Leslie Jones
SPEAKING of kickass SNL comedians…Leslie Jones was then nothing in need of hilarious during her time at Studio 8H. Her Weekend Update guest spots were also iconic, as were this and that. Closing her chapter on Saturday Night Live, then, she has released, Leslie Jones: time machine, her “joyfully raw and outrageous” Netflix stand-up special.
Mindy Kaling firstly wracked up our laughs within the writers’ room. Then, on-camera as the Office’s high-maintenance drama queen, Kelly Kapoor. However, this was just the tip of her comedy empire. This comedian has certainly made Hollywood hers, from writing and starring within the Mindy Project and Late Night to making and writing Netflix’s teen rom-com series Never Have I Ever. To summarize, lucky for us, this funny lady continues to crush it. FYI: She’s set to co-write Legally Blonde 3. What, like it’s hard?
This self-described “high-functioning hot mess” is certainly, all of your friends’ favorite funny Instagram follow. Comedian Heather McMahan is subsequently known for delivering hysterical gripings about life’s regular annoyances. She also plays original comedic characters and is nailing the most effective Ina Garten impression you’ve ever seen. This girl further features a critically-acclaimed comedy tour, hosts a weekly comedy podcast. She further posts IG stories that’ll cause you to howl on the daily, proving she is, for real, doing the most.
7. Rebel Wilson
“At first I didn’t realize it was your diary, so, I assumed it had been a really sad handwritten book.” Rebel Wilson was THE breakout star in Bridesmaids. Since then, one among our faves from down under’ has flexed her comedic chops in Pitch Perfect, how to Be Single, Isn’t It Romantic, Cats (whoopsies!) then far more. And on top of everything else, she’s certainly the brightest spot of any awards show she’s at.
Meanwhile, she made her mark in comedy quite 10 years ago because of stand up, The Sarah Silverman Program, and late-night comedy bits, Sarah’s focus now skews more toward a platform for politics, seen last in I Love You, America on Hulu.
All right, didn’t realize Awkwafina’s first raid comedy came via her “vag”: aka her rap video that got over 5 million views. Awkwafina has since then, taken her comedic chops to big-time movies, including Crazy Rich Asians and Ocean’s 8. Not to forget, she was also the first-ever Asian American to win a Golden Globe in any lead actress film category for her role in com-dram The Farewell. Furthermore, if you want to ascertain her shine, you must watch her Comedy Central series Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens. So, brace yourself for her hysterical show about a 27-year-old who moves back home and is struggling to “adult.”
10. Jenny Slate
She’s seriously Jean Ralphio singing voice the bestttttttt. Jenny Slate, whom you may remember from her hysterical portrayal of Mona-Lisa Saperstein on Parks and Recreation, has certainly an extended list of comedic credits. for instance, did you recognize she voiced Marcel the Shell?! Jenny has been on everything from Kroll Show to SNL, and also recently released her first standup special. It’s so-named as, Stage Fright: “a mix of stage time, funny stories about adulthood and conversations with family in her childhood home.”
