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.

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

Don't really remember, maybe. Roasts are supposed to be somewhat tasteless and brutal though, so probably.

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.

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 ****.

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.

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.

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

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.

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?

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.

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.
