Assuming you mean female comedians:

Female comedians are less funny than males because their material is always about being a woman, whereas male comedian's material is not being a man. Also female comedians tend to be fay and ditzy or men-haters. Male comedians are more likely to make fools of themselves for comic effect (eg. Robin Williams, Lee Evans, Russell Howard...)

First off, the voice. It's hard to use the right tone when you either sound like an annoying asshole or snow white. Why are women not funny on the internet? False. There are no women on the internet.

This is literally the only female comedian that made me laugh:

idk why, but I guess they just seem less sincere giving their lines? Like it's more acted? And also they generally have a harder time delivering raunchy jokes, or at least they seem out-of-place when doing so.

Amy Schumer's pretty hilarious. Not so much on the comedy central roasts, but she had me crack up a few times during her guest appearance on John Oliver's stand up show.

She was the only female guest to make me laugh
User avatar #490 to #383 - sammyjankiis (02/28/2013) [-]
Isnt she the bitch that on Charlie Sheens Roast she made fun Of Ryan Dunns death to steve-0 saying everybody wishes it was him?
User avatar #504 to #490 - maxoverderp (02/28/2013) [-]
Don't really remember, maybe. Roasts are supposed to be somewhat tasteless and brutal though, so probably.
User avatar #506 to #504 - sammyjankiis (02/28/2013) [-]
ya but this was literally 3 months after his death! To soon! But ya she was pretty funny besides that!

Hitchens did a really good article on that question.   
The crux of his argument was, men have to be funny to be attractive to women, whereas women have boobs, so don't need to make us laugh for us to want to have sex with them.

Hah **** , you're right. I hadn't thought of Ellen Degeneres. I guess it's not weird when she degrades herself because she's basically a bro.
User avatar #478 to #356 - imonamouse (02/28/2013) [-]
sarah and ellen came to my mind first but, maya rudolph is ******* hilarious. but i agree with you about the rest.
kristen wiig, molly shannon, and carol brunett are all also funny

i agree except lisa lampinelli and joan rivers are funny too.

im sorry but they try way to hard to be vulgar, if it were in an intelligent way, they would be somewhat funny. but they just let garbage spew from the gigantic orifice on the over operated on thing they call faces

I read somewhere that testosterone is what makes men more comedic than women. Don't know how legit that is though.

"ITT"? This isn't /b/. Just saying
User avatar #270 to #19 - A Pickle (02/27/2013) [-]
This is true. I have never actually laughed at anything any woman has said. Even women comedians.

I'm not sexist, they just aren't funny
User avatar #466 to #270 - dearlybeloved (02/28/2013) [-]
probably doesn't help that you're a pickle.

I feel that women are simply ****** at thinking of and delivering jokes sometimes, but they are extremely witty when it comes to slander humor, like insults and **** .
User avatar #173 to #19 - andmyaxe (02/27/2013) [-]
Here's my theory :

Men laugh at attractive women's jokes in order to "get in their pants". These girls go on to think that their ****** jokes are funny, and that they, by extension, are funny. Uglier girls don't get this attention and are generally funnier. Also, some girls are way too sensitive and thus get offended too easily.

TL;DR: Don't laugh at ****** jokes

Actually, I know a chick who's surprisingly funny with me and her other friends, but when she actively tries, she ends up forcing it and it just doesn't work out at all.
Damn shame, honestly.
User avatar #103 to #19 - pianoasis (02/27/2013) [-]
because they aren't willing to make fun of themselves

its all about keeping presentation up
User avatar #480 to #103 - imonamouse (02/28/2013) [-]
you have not been paying attention to a lot of women the past 15 years on tv have you.
a lot of em are write the **** that men deliever.
User avatar #515 to #480 - pianoasis (03/02/2013) [-]
Yes, but that's nothing to do with keeping presentation up is it? They can be funny, but they can not openly degrade themselves because it is not "lady-like".

You've probably seen the stand-up female comedians that try to do this and degrade themselves, it's really off-putting and really not funny at all.

User avatar #241 to #103 - danniegurl ONLINE (02/27/2013) [-]
idk, i know lots of girls who can.
i was wearing heels and my shoe caught and i fell, and i made fun of myself.
User avatar #410 to #241 - pianoasis (02/28/2013) [-]
>wearing heels
User avatar #414 to #410 - danniegurl ONLINE (02/28/2013) [-]
yeah, i had a presentation and we were supposed to dress nicely for it.

i guess guys here aren't taking to kindly to my shoe choice.
my point was that girls do make fun of themselves sometimes.
not only me, but other ones too.
case in point: jennifer lawrence did it at the oscars and an fj user commented how they thought it was cool that she made fun of herself.

you really fail on the anonymous aspect of the internet, your username and profile pic is basically screaming to everyone that you're female
User avatar #518 to #516 - danniegurl ONLINE (03/02/2013) [-]
well this particular website isn't anonymous, now is it?
that's /b/
this is funnyjunk.
i realize people wont care that i'm a girl (especially since i'm one who wont post **** ) but i still have a right to speak from personal experience.
when guys do this (i.e. stories about fapping or something else penis-owning related) no one cares, but if i mention something i relate to as a girl, suddenly i get red-thumbed.
so in reality, guys don't actually "not care" about girls on the internet, and rather they just don't like them if they say absolutely anything that shows they are a girl.
User avatar #522 to #518 - pianoasis (03/02/2013) [-]
There should be no gender on the internet because on the internet it doesn't really matter
To call yourself male or female on the internet is simply an attempt to reap the social privileges from being that gender in real life
Just because this isn't /b/, doesn't subtract the anonymous factor
Why do you insist on declaring yourself as female if there is no point to it other than you will gain attention?
User avatar #523 to #522 - danniegurl ONLINE (03/02/2013) [-]
it's not like i go around everywhere saying "i'm a girl and blah blah blah"? no, i don't.
you obviously didn't get the point of what i just said.
i know no one cares, and i'm not trying to get any benefits.
my point is, the internet in general is NOT anonymous, only certain parts.
facebook certainly isn't anonymous, and no where in this site does it say that it's anonymous either. we all have usernames, right? that alone subtracts from anonymity.

"idk, i know lots of girls who can.
i was wearing heels and my shoe caught and i fell, and i made fun of myself."

Basically, "I'm a girl and I'm different."

Jokes aside, this dude/girl pretty much got it
I'm a girl and I can confirm
#93 to #19 - Womens Study Major (02/27/2013) [-]
I read a study once claiming that men are the ones that make the jokes and women laugh to them. That's why you will see women just make small giggles here and there, even if it isn't funny.

Hardly any females i know posses any good jokes.
