I agree with Pen.
Least funny person I've ever seen. I scoff involuntarily every time one of the ads for her show comes on.

Indeed. Totally not funny. I think she's entirely obnoxious. I've never liked her and I don't like her show.

At first, I thought she was a little funny.

Then I watched her show.

I realized that she's just weird. Very, very weird.

I thought Jesus is Magic was funny, but I've had my doubts about the show.  Though it is pretty good, I think (but I could totally understand why someone would hate it).

I must agree with the exact sentiment.  I find her mostly obnoxious in the way that she seems to think she's really hilarious, but occasionally she'll extract a smile or single syllable chuckle from me.  Overall I was wishing her show wouldn't do well, but it did well enough for another season.

Carlos Mencia is still the scum of the comedy world, right down there with Larry the Cable Guy, and no one could be as reprehensible as them.

Okay another question,

Do you like any female comedians?

I ask this because whenever I ask someone if they like the Sarah Silverman program they so no, then I ask them this and they just stare. Contemplating if they ever laughed at a female comedian.

We should turn this forum into, "The comedians with vaginas appreciation club"

 Man how dare you people even THINK about using Carlos mencia and Sarah Silverman in the same sentence(Dur). Sarah Silverman is all kinds of funny, especially compared to Carlos Mencia and other Comedy Central programming. Her show is one of the only good things on television (I don't watch television unless I plan on laughing, by the way.)

I don't like Sarah Silverman, but there's plenty of female comedians I've enjoyed.

There's one whose name I really, really wish I hadn't forgot, but she had a Comedy Central special where she actually spent 5 minutes talking about Final Fantasy Legend. It was the most obscure video game reference I had ever witnessed on TV and I was in love.

I agree with Pen too. Ellen in particular is one of my favorites --and just 'cause she sleeps with other girls doesn't mean she's not a woman. Cripes.
Kathy Griffin can be funny sometimes too, when she's not being...you know...shrill. There are others, but I'll have to look them up 'cause I can't think of their names right now.

Edit to add: Omigod... Whoopie Goldberg. Now -there- is a funny woman. Can't believe I spaced her.

Kristen Schaal anyone?

OR

Maria Bamford?

I personally dont like Ellen or Wanda Sykes that much, They're funny and all. But I feel they cant get all knitty gritty because of their whole "family friendly" public appearance... Does that make sense?

I think Ellen does exactly the style of comedy she wants to do. I don't think it has anything to do with maintaining her public appearance. Her comedy style is just not... nitty gritty, I guess.

Wanda Sykes is WAY too loud for me to listen to for too long. Love her on Curb Your Enthusiasm, though.

I disagree Mr/Ms.Betty. Ellen got her sitcom cancelled for going to a nightclub, or so I heard.

Anyway...
Ellen's sitcoms were canceled for the same reason most are canceled --a low number of viewers. Her talk-show seems to be doing very well, though I haven't watched it because I don't really like talk-shows that much... but it's been on for quite some time now, and she really seems to enjoy doing it.

Her talk show makes me laugh. And she dances around, which I find incredibly amusing. She's a funny lady, and I think she's one of the better female role models out there right now.

Some people would like you to believe that he sitcom was canceled because she came out as a lesbian, but I'm not sure it was as much as all that. It probably was actually due to low viewership. I think her sitcom and her talk show are both pretty funny. I just generally enjoy her personality.

I have the "I <3 Ellen" shirt.  :oops:
Got it years ago.

Tina Fey

I hate you.
Tina Fey is a good writer, I will give her that. I loved the seasons of SNL when she was writing, but as for when she actually came on the show and started being an actress...
I hate her. I hate her so much.

However, I love her hair and glasses for some reasons...bizarre.

I never said Ellen wasnt funny/a good rolemodel/lawful good. I think shes funny, shes my favorite talkshow host (well, next to Rachel Ray) but she doesnt make me laugh out loud as other comedians do.

PQ4, Shes not the BEST actress, I dont know how she was on SNL but I think shes funny on her show "30 Rock".

I've never watched Rachel Ray's talk show (like I said, totally not into talk-shows. I loathe listening to people sit and talk about crap I don't usually care about), but I -do- enjoy watching her 30 Minute Meals on Food Network. The woman -always- has a smile on her face and always seems to genuinely like everything that she does. Love Rachel Ray.

And I didn't say you -did- say anything about Ellen, WTG, I hate you because you brought up Tina Fey. And it's not real hate, just metaphorical hate...or whatever.

Her food is very delicous, My mother always makes her meals and they are highlights of my day. We had this awesome openfaced sandwhich that had some sort of meat on top and then an egg. I forgot, something cuban. But it was a BLD served with this mint tea that is usually an alchoholic beverage. Shes amazing, If I got to choose someone to spy on me 24 hours a day to protect the secruity of this nation, it would be Rachel Ray

Really? I don't think she's that skinny. She's not fat, of course, but she's got some...thickness. The only thing that bugs me about her (and it bugs me a lot) is how she says "EVOO" and the always follows it with "Extra Virgin Olive Oil." Either say the abbreviation, or say the whole thing! If you don't think people are going to get the abbreviation, then why bother with it?
That is all.

Also, I really can't think of any other comediennes I like. That's odd.

She's "normal-shaped."

Wait, this thread is about comediennes. She's not one of those.

TWG: the term for "female comedian" is comedienne. Just fyi. It's French.
