Top 10 Funniest Female Comedians of All TimeThis is the list of the funniest female comics. Some of them don't get the recognition they deserve so I am making a list to pay tribute to the many funny female comics.
She had the courage and guts to go out there in a male dominated industry and do her absolute best. She didn't let it intimidate her as it could have. Not only did she succeeded in her craft, she excelled and helped others along the way. She paved the way for other female comedians who would follow.
Lucille Ball started the sitcom, almost every comedy show we watch on television today owes something to I Love Lucy. She was such a perfectionist and always got everything absolutely right, always the funniest it could be. I'm only a teenager, yet Lucy is my favourite actress.
It is so sad that the votes really think that the crude humor of today's comedians can even come close to Lucy. Obviously the voters are young in age. This is like thinking todays singers with auto tune for pitch control can compare to singers like Sinatra Bennett or jac jones.
Joan was hilarious. Yes, her humor was wicked and cutting. But it was often very accurate. I don't know if she should be number one--but she certainly deserves to be in the top ten
What a legend. Joan Rivers has to be named the most resilient female comedienne of all time. It is impossible to watch her and not laugh, no matter how rude, crude and filthy her jokes. Cannot beat Joan Rivers
Not often that a comedian is espected to take over the Tonight Show from Johnny Carson, nevermind a woman. Which would have happened if Joan did not get her own show... And pissed off Johnny.
Roseanne broke many barriers in comedy. She created a situation comedy which was more realistic than most comedy shows. Her family lived like many real families. She also broke another barrier. Roseanne was overweight. But that was not the focus of her comedy. For many years female comedians used their personal appearance as the source of their humor, Roseanne didn't. She looked like many women and she never tried to make people think that was funny.
She was a famous woman who had her own show of her name. It was funny, and great while it lasted.
It was cancelled because of all the controversy and she posted a racist tweet, and Donald Trump responded to the cancellation and blamed her tweet on a drug called Ambien.
Which shows you she joined the club of stars who were good, but went downhill.
If all you saw was her sitcom, see some standup clips. Unapologetically cranky and indifferent to others opinions, there's a reason her sitcom lasted so long.
I don't like Ellen anymore; the main reason is because she has treated some celebrities strangely. Just look at her treating Taylor Swift like she's some singer who dates all kinds of celebs and guys! Well done, Ellen, but you've got a lesson you need to learn; don't force them if they don't want any of that!
Also, I remember she revealed the rumor that Mariah Carey is pregnant, even though at the time, she doesn't know if she is going to have a baby, and gave her some beer, even though drinking alcohol can cause Mariah Carey to have an unhealthy baby. Trust me, she has treated celebrities like a nutcase before.
Her show is awesome and she is a very likeable person that everyone can relate to. The famous people that go in her show are always open to her, because they know she is a professional in everything she does!
She is brilliant and hilariously funny! Also she has the ability to be completely herself and still be funny! A complete natural. Please put another picture of her though, there are millions of great ones!
Carol Burnett is and always will be very funny! Having learned much from the greatest, Lucille Ball, Carol won the hearts of many very quickly! My favorite thing about her is her openness and humility! She truly felt like she was the one who got the most out of her shows! I love in the end of each show where she got the autographs of every person that guest starred! Lastly, we cannot forget her iconic Tarzan Yell!
I miss Carol Burnett on T.V.. Her shows were always so entertaining as well as the male counterparts who shared her weekly shows. The jokes they played on each other were hilarious and even had each other laughing at themselves. Hope she makes a comeback including her buddies.
Her comedy variety show outlasted them all from her day. She is the inspiration for many generations both male and female. Her sketch comedy goes back to the 1950's and no one made me laugh harder. She should be #1 instead of all the trash mouths.
The SNL routine she did about sex and the inuendo is an all time classic. Her timing and control is unmatched with today's comedians. It will be a long time before her genius is equaled.
Funniest comedienne over the years. She has perfect comedic timing even as she has aged.
Why is she not higher on this list? This woman is walking comedic gold. I love her so much!
She is not only very funny in every way possible, but she is very cute. I like her wit, her attitude towards life and says exactly what is on her mind. I think she is very real, truthful and speaks from the heart. Would like to sit down and chit chat with Sarah get to known her and laugh all day for a change.
She might be the funniest HUMAN EVER. Not just female comedian. Her last special a speck of dust might have been my favorite ever. I hope she never retires from stand up. I don't think she ever will though because you can her jokes are everything to her. So much admiration for her. What I'm trying to say is she should probably marry me. JK I don't know LOL OK I'm DONE
If I ever lose my mind and start hearing voices, I hope it is Sarah Silverman who is speaking to me.
The queen of mean, none other then Lisa Lampanelli! In my opinion, she's the only funny female comedian out there. Not only is she like the funniest female comedian, but she's like one of my top 10 favorite comedians of all time!
I think Lisa Lampanelli is the funniest female comic today. This list is whack. Where is Margaret Cho and Wanda Sykes. Ellen Degeneres is not funny. But she is a good talk show host.
Lisa is funny and knows how to cheer up someone that had a bad day! And she can burn you with words so watch out. We loved her on Celebrity Apprentice.
I have watched several comic's and I have never laughed so hard as I did when I watched her! She's awesome!
Whitney is the queen of female comedians... Nobody else even comes close to her wit.
She is hilarious! Very real too.
Tina Fey should be #1 on this list. What the hell is wrong with you? She is the funniest woman of all time. Ellen isn't even all that funny. No one will remember Ellen and her shows in the future. Tina Fey and "30 Rock" will be remembered, just like "Seinfeld". Both "Seinfeld" and "30 Rock" will be remembered because they are timeless classics! The End.
Tina Fey is BY FAR the funniest on this list! Why is she not on top as number one? Perhaps the list is moderated by friends of the others...
While I find this list lame, Tina Fey is absolutely one of the most relevant comedians ever. And her work and writing are timless.
What an original~Kathy is fearless, will sacrifice everything to entertain her audience no matter how non-"politically correct" it makes her look or sound. Honest, brave, loyal, Some people don't get her, but I do~She's a very compassionate person & I love her for who she is & all she does. Maggie (her mom) rocks, too!
Kathy Griffin is excellent! I want to be her!
I would like to see some comedy skits from kathy griffin on netflix
I first knew who Maria was when I found out that she plays around 25 characters on Adventure Time (my favorite show of all time). I decided to take a look at her stand-up and she's crazy in all the right ways. It's like she has ten different personalities and a distinct voice and face for each one of them. Her style of comedy can be hit or miss sometimes, but when she's on, she's REALLY on. I don't think I've ever seen a comedian like her before.
I second Maria Bamford. She's the only comedian who actually does edgy, original, dice-rolling comedy. Every other female comedian basically talks about how weird or stupid men are.
Actually funny, instead of just trying to push the boundaries of what women are supposed to be. That has its role, but doesn't always make for the best kind of comedy.
I was a stand-up comedian and ran two comedy clubs. I gave Bill Hicks his first gig and had a close relationship with Sam Kinison at the start of his career. In all my years, I have never seen a comedian, male or female, tighter than Phyllis Diller. I actually timed her performances, and she would consistently get strong laughs every four seconds. I've had the opportunity to see most of the stand-up greats perform live, and while there were other comedians I personally preferred over Phyllis (perhaps because they made me think more), when it comes to delivering solid laughs, I don't think it's humanly possible to find a much stronger act than hers.
Speaking of stand-ups, the list seems to be missing some notable names such as Lily Tomlin, Whoopi Goldberg, Elayne Boosler, Moms Mabley, and to not include Gracie Allen is simply criminal. These women have made significant contributions to the world of stand-up comedy and deserve recognition alongside the others.
Whoopi is so talented she was cast in movie after movie. Her roots however began with comedy. The "One Woman" shows she wrote and performed were brilliant. Serious subjects masked in comedic performances which brought you from unstoppable laughter to tears streaming down your face. I don't know how she is so far down, but then I have yet to see Lilly Tomlin's name so I most certainly disagree with these rankings.
Funny, very good acting in movies, but also her stand-up comedy has very funny jokes and tricks!
LOVE HER! She is a Scorpio like me and I get everything she does! Would love to meet her someday!
Amy Pohler contiues to be one of the funniest women on Television. Everything she does is great, and Park and Rec is one of the funniest shows on.
She is so funny, she makes plain old stuff hilarious, especially mom humor.
Margaret Cho is by far the most inspirational and butt-bustingly hilarious comedian in our entire species. She is idolized by thousands of fans for her wit, delivery, but most importantly, her beautiful to-the-point message of equality and tolerance. She personally inspires me everyday.
I can listen to her tell stories about her family for hours.
Just funny! Not playing a stupid woman
Wanda Sykes is hands down the funniest female comedian of all time. She can work clean and blue, she can adlib, she can do television comedy and I think she could come through on the screen with the right vehicle. She is a great interview. I rate my comedians on how hard they can consistently make me laugh in a short period of time and hands down she is the one. 2. Phyllis Diller, the reason that crazy laugh worked so well was because it was her real laugh. 3. Toadie Fields, quick wit funny not as well known died young. 4. Lucille Ball lucie only had one character but it was one of the best ones of all time. 5. Moms Mabley, funny as hell, way before her time too bad. 6. Amy Schuler, one of a kind. 7. Although not just a comedienne, you can't go wrong with Bette Midler. 8. Minner Pearl could make me laugh and she didn't have much to work with keepin it country clean. 9. Roseanne Barr, probably would have put her closer to the top but not changin now.
10. Now I really screwed up Carol burnett hasn't even made my chart yet. These are my top 10 comedienne's of all time in any order with Sykes on top.
The gold standard for female comedians. Arguably the greatest female comedian of all time. She's also crazy hot. Her body is insane for someone in her profession.
She's unreal. Her style feels exactly like the banter you'd have with your friends.
She's hot and hilarious couldn't ask for a better combo.
What the Hell guys? Most of the women higher up on this list have been heavily inspired by JLD, and women in comedy wouldn't be how they are today without her crazy and boundary breaking antics on Seinfeld. Even today, she has proven to be consistent in her hilarity over her nearly 4 decade long comedy career. She has won 3 Emmys for her performance in Veep (sorry, Amy Poehler), and she will continue to succeed throughout the year. To rank her this low on the list is an atrocity that leads me to believe that none of the voters on this page have the slightest understanding of the foundations of comedy.
She is very funny. Once she swore on the set of Seasme Street by accident. Elmo told her to put money in the swear jar, to which she replied "You're gonna be a very rich Muppet."
She is very funny. She is also tied with Cloris Leachman for having the most Emmys.
She would literally bring tears to my eyes, especially how quick she was interacting with audience. Her materially was extremely funny, but her interactions with audience were even funnier. Shows you she truly is a funny person.
No one comes close to her audience interactions. Brilliant. She was a "political correspondent" (ha! ) for the Jay Leno show years before the amazing hon Stewart creates the daily show. Unfortunately I can't find that footage anywhere!
Years ago when I discovered Paula Poundstone she was at her prime I reckon. She is hilarious and could have been an Ellen Degen if her career had gone differently. Brilliant woman.
She'll forever be Sookie to me. I don't watch anything else of hers, but her role as Sookie on Gilmore Girls earns her a spot at the top for me.
'There's a Hidden Valley Ranch party in MY mouth!'- Melissa McCarthy, one of the funniest women alive, in SNL's super funny awesome skit, Taste Test. I'm pretty sure that was mostly improv.
Deserves top ten just for her Spicer skits.
