Make that: The joke IS you, Adam Carolla! Since The New York Post published the Celebrity Apprentice (NBC) star’s comments about men being funnier than women, females have been lighting up Twitter, proving that we’re pretty hilarious, and well…maybe Adam Carolla isn’t that funny after all.
“The reason why you know more funny dudes than funny chicks is that dudes are funnier than chicks,” Carolla told The New York Post while promoting his new book, Not Taco Bell Material.
“When you’re picking a basketball team, you’ll take the brother over the guy with the yarmulke. Why? Because you’re playing the odds,” he continued, foot firmly inserted in mouth. “When it comes to comedy, of course there’s Sarah Silverman, Tina Fey, Kathy Griffin — super funny chick. But if you’re playing the odds? No.”
Adam Carolla — allow us to introduce you to a few “super funny” chicks…
“Wait, Adam Carolla, is he the one who did the voice of the parrot in Aladdin??? He makes me giggle.”
–Lena Dunham, creator and star of HBO’s Girls
“The biggest impact this whole Adam Carolla scandal has had is discovering 95% of people have no idea how to spell ‘Carolla.’”
–Jenny Johnson, writer, comedienne
“In an ironic twist, ‘women aren’t funny’ ranked number one funniest thing Adam Carolla has ever said.”
And our personal favorite from Lauren Ashley Bishop: “Adam who?”
