Women Aren’t Funny? The Joke’s On You, Adam Carolla!

June 20, 2012 01:00 PM by Shayla Perry

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.”

Danielle Corsetto

And our personal favorite from Lauren Ashley Bishop: “Adam who?”

    My sense of humor tends to be out of the mainstream and only funny with my circle of friends, so I’m probably not qualified to determine if women are generally funnier than men. However, my degree in communications allows me to say that at least one woman lacks journalistic integrity the same as men.

    Quit putting words in people’s mouths in your story titles. It’s a freaking epidemic among “journalists,” whether in traditional
    media or online. Tim Kenneally of Reuters did it and now you are doing it too. Adam Carolla did not say women aren’t funny, and your purposeful attempt to imply that he did, just to drive more traffic to your site, makes you dishonest and unworthy of your job.

    It’s crap like this that led me to go the research route. Journalism is just a joke now. I’ll take an honest but offensive two-time New York Times best selling author with the Guinness record for most downloaded podcast over a dishonest, niche market blog writer that no one has ever heard of any day.
