Right before I get criticised for being sexist, just read the following.....

I was watching earlier on a woman attempting to do stand up comedy. She was extremely unfunny, and it got me thinking......

1) There are a lot more famous stand up comedians that are male.
2) In most scripted comedies, males are the main source of jokes.
3) How many funny women can you name?

As I say, I'm not being sexist I've just realised that in general, men seem to have been blessed with better humour than women. Maybe that was to make up for the added intelligence that women supposedly have ;)

Re: Why are men funnier than women?

I think it's for the same reason men seem to enjoy hang out together than women. Men are taught or learn to use humor as a way to face fears, emotions or stuff that bothers us. Women are supossed to be correct, clean :shrug:

Re: Why are men funnier than women?

Men are far more comedic than Women, yes it's true; only because most female comedians are butch and try too hard to subscribe to masculine humor.

Women are much more funny than men, when they are in their element and being themselves. I particulary find primadonna's very amusing, I enjoy the sort of diva attitude and often times they are much more clever than men.

Men have a bland outlook on life, women are much more versatile.

This coming from a heterosexual male himself. :) ( I point out heterosexual, because this post screams .... well ... you know. :)

Re: Why are men funnier than women?

I personally think Jerry Seinfeld is not, not, NOT funny.

Shall we then say that white people are funnier than black people because for every active black comedian there are probably at least 5 white comedians? or how about Black people are funnier than asian people because for every asian comedian there are at least 5 black comedians?

Thats completely different, those are disproportionate races. Men/Women is pretty close to 50/50.

women have been accepted as having a profession for a far shorter time than men have.

There are a lot more famous men at [insert any profession here] than women. Period. Women just haven't gotten the opportunities men have over the years. I think the gap is closing, but there's a lot of history to be made up for.

2) In most scripted comedies, males are the main source of jokes.
Don't you mean...are the butt of most jokes (even when told by men)? ;) I think both you and Fonzie hit on some of it...humor is an 'accepted' way to deal with difficult situations...and y'all are just dumber than us and there's gotta be a reason for us to keep you around. j/k ;)

3) How many funny women can you name?
Not nearly as many as I can men...but here again, I believe that's mostly from lack of exposure rather than lack of talent.

I think all the time.

I think you're talking out of your bumhole if you're suggesting that the reason there aren't many women comedians out there is due to society preventing them getting there.

what about Karen on Will and Grace, Phoebe on Friends, Roseanne and Darlene on Roseanne, 2/3 of the cast on Absolutely Fabulous, Murphy Brown, Alley McBeal, Golden Girls, Designing Women, Sex and the city, Bewitched, I Dream of Genie, and the list goes on and on

Currently there is nothing stopping women getting into any profession. The only reason why there might be more males in certain professions is that some women choose not to work

Women comedians attempt to use men during most of their jokes, but they're simply not as funny as women jokes.

I disagree, I genuinely don't think there is anything stopping them. Even the majority of the ones that have got the exposure aren't particularly funny in my opinion.[/QUOTE]
