Albeit a man, perhaps Rodney Dangerfield described the world of female comedians best: “I tell ya, no respect!” It’s a tough world for the ladies among us who endeavor to enter into the world of stand up comedy. But only a female comedian has the insight into the world of woman that will leave the women in their audiences bawling in laughter and the men bowing their heads in shame (on the other hand, they just might be bowing their heads to hide the fact that they’re laughing, too!)

Perhaps the earliest well-known female comedian was Lucille Ball, whose show I Love Lucy caused TV watchers around the country to fall on the floor in laughter. At the same time, Ball pushed the boundaries for early female comedians and opened the doors for many to follow. As stand up comedy progressed as an art unto itself throughout the 20th century, more and more female comedians began to appear in front of audiences. Gilda Radner, a member of one of the early casts of Saturday Night Live was also regarded as one of the most famous female comedians in the biz. The modern-day work of female comedians include the edgy yucks of Janeane Garofalo and the quirky humor of Kathy Griffin. During the recent History Channel program, The History of the Joke, hosted by Lewis Black, many of the top female comedians on the circuit today, including Griffin, talked about the challenges of being a female comedian, while also discussing how only they possess that special ability to communicate with their fellow sisters one-on-one.

Female comedians in the movies and featured in other venues carry with them a huge fan base that can relate to their often gender-based humor. However, as any great comedian knows, whether male or female, an audience is meant to laugh together. They might deny it afterward, but male audience members get a kick out of the fun poked at them by female stand up comedians, too. features some of the top talents of the day, especially featuring Ellen DeGeneres, a well-traveled stand up comedian, a talk show host and now a celebrity judge on American Idol. DeGeneres’ understated observational style is second to none, and she’s proven herself able to make an audience’s members fall out of their chairs for decades.

Caroline Rhea’s down-to-earth comedy routine has carried her through an entirely successful career in standup. That same degree of comedy has led Rhea to high-profile acting gigs in many television shows and films.

You’ll also find many other comedians at the top of their game through, the acclaimed Rita Rudner, Kathy Griffin, Aisha Tyler and many, many others. All of our famous female comedians are sure to bring the house down. Our long list of female comedians is undoubtedly the best you’ll find anywhere in the country, so look no further for the entertainment to star at your next event. After all, a little star power goes a long way!
