I'm not a huge fan of female comics, but Nikki Glaser's Comedy Central special is pretty damn funny.

Yeah, I can't think of a funny female stand up comic off the top of my head.

Schumer's alright, but she blew up and now she's everywhere...overexposed.

Not sure if its been posted or not, but I've been listening to the comedy central channel on sirius radio (its a free trial). I heard Gabriel Iglesias ("Fluffy") tell the Racist Gift basket routine. I'll post it below. I'm going to put a Not Safe For Work tag on it, just to be sure.

While it's a good routine that I've heard before, I find GI to be virtually unlistenable...to me, there is just so much pandering in his act.

There are so few funny female comedians. Usually, most female comics have about 10/15 minutes of general material and then 30 minutes of sloppy blowjob jokes. Tig is definitely one of the funnier female comics. Her Conan guest spots are always great too. I enjoyed her Documentary where she put on stand-up shows in random south and mid-west towns.

Such a great skit if you've ever seen The First 48:

Yeah, that standup set she did after she was diagnosed with cancer is absolutely incredible. I've never heard anything else like it. But overall I do agree about female stand ups. Too many of them have trouble breaking out and showing a perspective beyond being female. Maria Bamford is better than that, but I'm not a big fan of what she does, even if it is unique. For me, it seems like most of the best comic voices from women are operating in writing and especially improv right now. No one could ever accuse Tina Fey, Janet Varney, Lauren Lapkus or Jessica St. Clair of not being funny, but they don't do standup.

Was fortunate enough to catch Louie CK, Bill Burr and Kyle Kinane all in like the last quarter of 2016 (separately). All of them crushed it but Louie was on another plane...I had never seen my lady laugh that hard in the 5 years we've been together.

Some really good comedians I've seen lately are Jeff Bodart and Jeremy Essig. And I saw Jon Lovitz several months ago and that might have been the funniest hour of my life.

I saw him at Go Bananas in Cincinnati around 11 years ago. He stood right by the exit so you pretty much had to talk to him to leave. He signed my bar receipt and then pointed at a trash can and said "... and you can throw that away right there!"

Saw him not too long ago, he was great! The ticket came with a free copy of his book, so I have a signed copy.

I watched this last night. Some pretty solid laughs. Definitely the same special just reworded as all the others. He's fat, has five kids, lives in a shoebox in nyc.
