Adam Carolla Says Women Not As Funny As Men, Twitter-verse Explodes

Time to report another "Adam Carolla offended someone" story. In a recent interview with the NY Post, homie shot funny women down, saying:

...they make you hire a certain number of chicks, and they’re always the least funny on the writing staff. The reason why you know more funny dudes than funny chicks is that dudes are funnier than chicks.

When asked if he was worried about the reaction he would get, Adam went on to say:

I don’t care. 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. When it comes to comedy, of course there’s Sarah Silverman, Tina Fey, Kathy Griffin — super-funny chicks. But if you’re playing the odds? No.

If Joy Behar or Sherri Shepherd was a dude, they’d be off TV. They’re not funny enough for dudes. What if Roseanne Barr was a dude? Think we’d know who she was? Honestly.

Well, needless to say, many comedians and other notable folks (male and female) WERE offended, and they got on the Twitters in droves. Here's a taste of the reaction:


I think all comics are funny, even adam carolla-actually-everyone has at least three good minutes-

I work with hilarious men and WOMEN everyday.

Why are we ruining our perfect not caring what Adam Carolla thinks streak?

Wait, Adam Carolla, is he the one who did the voice of the parrot in Aladdin??? He makes me giggle.

Thank-you, Adam Corolla. Your terribleness gives all of us the opportunity to scream how NOT TERRIBLE we are!! YAY!

I don't take Adam Carolla saying women aren't funny seriously. He once told a caller on Loveline to eat a used tampon, y'know?

Parasite Regrets Choosing Adam Carolla As Host

I'm less offended by Adam Corolla's comments than I am super impressed that he came here in a time machine to speak to us from the 80's.

"Adam Carolla is getting some guff because of recent comments he made about women not being all that funny. I know he thinks I’m funny so therefore I’ve deduced he doesn’t think I’m a woman."
