Yeah but be honest, there are no funny women stand-ups, are there?

Err, in short, yes there are, fool! And here are the videos to prove it. I’m overlooking the proliferation of idiotic comments that inevitably get left after any clip of a woman comedian, which generally take one of two themes: a) it hasn’t got a penis so I won’t laugh at it, or b) it hasn’t got a penis but, luckily for it, I quite fancy lending it mine.

Consider this a cheat sheet for the next time you meet a comedy neanderthal whose idea of an amusing act is some prick taking the piss out of an accountant in the front row for half an hour before engaging in a series of poorly-constructed stories whose raison d’etre is some sort of wank mime.

Or worse, Jimmy Carr.
