People who believe women can’t be funny are narrow-minded idiots. OK, now that we have that taken care of, I’m here to prove that women can be funny. While chauvinists might believe only unattractive or overweight women can be funny, I will dispel this bigoted belief by providing this list of attractive, truly funny female comedians.
But first, let me provide some context. By sexiest female comedians, I’m talking about those who have written their own sketches or have done stand-up. Bright, successful, attractive people who just so happen to be hilarious. While the ladies below are in no particular order, they all have three things in common: their gender, incredible looks and an impeccable talent for comedy.
Iliza Shlesinger, the winner of “Last Comic Standing” season six, was the first female to ever win the competition. If that wasn’t enough of an achievement, she was also the youngest.
After winning the competition and touring with the program, Shlesinger since secured a lasting and successful relationship with Netflix, releasing three stand-up specials that include: “War Paint” (2012), “Freezing Hot” (2015) and “Confirmed Kills”, which is set to be released later this month.

Best known as “Gina” from “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (she actually attended elementary school with co-star and creator, Andy Samberg) and as Bobby Bottleservice’s love interest “Farley” on the “Kroll Show”, the scene-stealing actress is wife to none other than fellow comic Jordan Peele of “Key & Peele.” The two were engaged in November 2013 and eloped in 2016, where their dog was the only official witness. Please release the world’s first ever comedic sex tape, Peretti and Peele, I beg you. (Picture via Instagram).
Aisha Tyler’s career has endured a lot. For instance, a plethora of shitty movies (”The Santa Clause 2” and “The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause”, “Balls of Fury”) and television shows (“The Fifth Wheel”, “Talk Soup”) Tyler finally solidified her position as a female frontrunner in comedy as spy and seductress “Lana Kane” on FX’s animated adult series “Archer” in 2009.
Since then, her roles and reputation have improved. Her weekly podcast “Girl on Guy” is consistently in the top of its category on iTunes and Tyler’s also the current host of “Whose Line is it Anyway”, a program I thought was cancelled since Drew Carey’s departure. (Picture via Instagram).
Glaser is an up-and-comer who’s quickly being recognized as a formidable and respected comedian, often being compared to fellow blonde, Amy Schumer. Her brand new program “Not Safe with Nikki Glaser”, is a sex-themed talk show that premiered on Comedy Central just this year, and has already spawned many funny, viral clips in its wake.
Her former sex-themed TV show, however “Nikki & Sara Live” on MTV, was not as much of a hit, and was cancelled after just two seasons. However, Glaser was one of the featured comedians on “The Roast Of Rob Lowe” a program that has proven to be the launching pad for many famous comedians. (Picture via Instagram).
Glazer is a millennial comedian whose journey to fame and fortune couldn’t have been more millennial. She and fellow lady comic Abbi Jacobson wrote and co-starred in a well-received web series named “Broad City”.
The program caught the eye of none other than Amy Poehler, who then helped the girls shop a pilot of the series, which was eventually scooped up by Comedy Central. The show was a hit with both critics and audiences and as a result of the series’ success, Glazer has begun acting in feature films, most notably in Seth Rogan’s “The Night Before.” (Picture via Instagram).
People who think Aubrey Plaza just “happened” upon fame are seriously misguided. Plaza has applied some serious elbow grease, and has worked some shitty jobs/internships to make it where she is today. She worked as an intern for a Post-It company, a page at NBC, and director’s assistant to Bennett Davlin, all while performing improv at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theatre.
After years and years of hard work, Plaza began acting in film, television and online roles including: “Funny People”, “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World”, “Safety Not Guaranteed”, “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” and so on. It’s safe to say that with all of these roles, Plaza has made it. She’s finally made it. (Picture via Instagram).
Because she’s the undisputed queen of comedy and has made glasses a HUGE turn-on for me. (Picture via Instagram).
Remember the NBC sitcom “Whitney” starring the sultry brunette pictured above? Us neither. Critics did, but for all the wrong reasons. They unanimously hated the program. So much, in fact, that it was cancelled after a measly two seasons.
E! later gave Cummings a shot at hosting her own talk show, which, again, was dismal, somehow performing even worse than “Whitney” and was cancelled after just eleven episodes. However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel for Cummings. The sitcom she helped co-create, “2 Broke Girls”, is a blazing success and is heading into its sixth season in October.

With 16 million YouTube subscribers, Jenna Marbles (born Jenna Nicole Mourey) is the creator of the seventh most subscribed YouTube channel in history. That makes her the most subscribed channel operated by a woman.
Prior to becoming a YouTube sensation, the bombshell worked as a go-go dancer (yes, please) and a writer for BarStool Sports.
Her pseudonym “Jenna Marbles” comes from her mother’s concern that this could affect her (who was unemployed at the time) chances of employment as the videos Marbles would post contained lewd material. So she needed a different name. Jenna settled on “Marbles” because of her dog “Mr. Marbles”. Estimates see Jenna Marbles worth at $2.5 million. (Picture via Instagram).
Another internet comic, Brittany Furlan shot into fame as a Vine comic (who currently has 9.9 million followers) and has been named one of the most influential people on the Internet by Time magazine. She’s funny as hell and trumps most of the boys who she shares the social media space with. Furlan is currently developing a sketch show, and if it’s half the program her Vines are, it’ll be a surefire hit. (Picture via Instagram)
