I have a thread is AIBU. He's another who thinks rape and special needs is fully.

Aside from Kate Smurthwaite what feminist comedians are there and are they funny?

bel elton was a feminist comedian in the 80s - dunno what he's like now though

I saw his recent (about 3 years ago) tour and he was as funny as Russell Howard, as in laughing out loud a lot.

he used to do a gag about how men would behave if they had periods grin

He started his gig with a list of his old gags about Tories and they were really similar to the, then current, labour govt. He is the reason I voted and cared about politics, I am the right age for Saturday night live!

I love Russell Howard - His jokes never seem to be unkind about anyone. Plus, he seems to really admire his mum. D'ya reckon we can call him a feminist comedian?

Nope. Russell Howard joked about a woman calling the police to report harassment when Manchester police were doing that twitter feed thing. He was highlighting various 'funny' things that were reported, in the vein of the silly things people call 999 for, and included a woman calling for street harassment.
