Pensive Businessman Using Laptop

Dear comedy booker, comedy industry person, random guy outside a show telling me he doesn’t “usually” find women funny (because, you know, he’s seen ALL the comedians!), or anyone who has asserted that there are just “not that many” female comedians: see below. I would link to each comedian’s twitter / website for you, but come on. I shouldn’t have to do all the work.

Note: when I initially created this list, I was able to come up with 160 names in less than 30 minutes off the top of my head. I’ve added many many more since, and will continue to do so. Hit me up on Twitter or in the comments if you see anyone missing!
