Was discussing this with my mate in the pub earlier. Why are women just not as funny (generally speaking) as men? Where are all the great women comedians? I can only think of Victoria Wood and that chubby one with the grey hair. It's just weird.

Dunno. Maybe it's because they're better at proof-reading checking their thread titles first. hmm

ThatllDoPig Sun 19-Jun-11 23:13:27

Are you, in fact joking by posing that?
I think women have by far better SOH than men, generally speaking, more depth, warmth, subtlety. Maybe not in a 'public' comedian way, but among each other, just read some of the hilarious stuff on here!

biscuit Num a num a num.

sunshineandbooks - sorry, I am half cut. However, I am also deadly serious. Women just aren't as funny.

Are you a boy?

mdowdall Sun 19-Jun-11 23:17:19

A boy? I am male yes.

DuelingFanjo Sun 19-Jun-11 23:18:04

I need more evidence that men are funny.

Pumpernickel10 Sun 19-Jun-11 23:19:22

Who the fuck thinks that? I don't think men are funnier.
Get me and DH naked and I'm defo the funniest with my tits down my ankles.

Pumpernickel10 Sun 19-Jun-11 23:20:24

Now come back when your sober boy and ask the same question

HowlingBitch Sun 19-Jun-11 23:21:17

Do you know many girls?

Pumpernickel10 Sun 19-Jun-11 23:22:08

I bet not he's probably a wee lad about 17

mdowdall Sun 19-Jun-11 23:22:35

Well I could provide the obvious DuelingFanjoSun - ie all the great comedians, comic writers etc have been men.
But for me it is the more subtle stuff in every day life. I can count on one hand the number of genuinely witty women I have ever met, literally. Even on this forum, the humour content is poor considering the level of traffic.

ThatllDoPig Sun 19-Jun-11 23:23:47

I don't think you've met many women!

Pumpernickel10 Sun 19-Jun-11 23:24:15

biscuit on that comment but will say there's tons of funny lasses on here

begonyabampot Sun 19-Jun-11 23:25:05

I'm funnier than my husband even though he thinks he is funnier -and i'm not even that funny. I think there is a pattern there.

NestaFiesta Sun 19-Jun-11 23:25:08

mdowdall- all the replies on this thread have had me laughing except yours.

Pumpernickel10 Sun 19-Jun-11 23:25:13

Now pissoff put some porn on and have a wank and leave the funny stuff to the ladies on here.

cunt and even better one grin

mdowdall Sun 19-Jun-11 23:26:57

Ah, off to bed. School in the morning. But ladies, I think you know I am right.

Pumpernickel10 Sun 19-Jun-11 23:27:25

Do you know what one is op

mdowdall Sun 19-Jun-11 23:27:27

cunt - now that is uncalled for Pumpernickel10.

HowlingBitch Sun 19-Jun-11 23:27:33

Women tend to save their humor for "men" smart enough to get it. Also I very much doubt (going by your sheer narrow minded posts) That you have much knowledge about great comic writers but I'm sure Google will be you best friend in this thread.
