I'm with you. Amy Schumer is like Dice. Not funny at all, but people go so them.

I wonder if there's something primal in that. Do we find it to be indecent? Do we immediately find a woman's voice to be annoying (based off of our wives, sisters, mothers)?

I do enjoy old Ellen Degeneres shows though.

The vast majority of comics are terrible. Most can't get a laugh without dropping the F bomb.

I disagree. The vast majority are average. Terrible in comedy won't even get you a laugh with the F bomb.

When Dice first came out?...He was a killer on stage. His bits eventually ran dry.

I agree. Ellen was as good as female comics get.

Joe Rogan has talked about the challenges females comics have many times on his podcast. Even he says that there just are not but a handful of women that have the chops for standup.

There are a ton of them that I find totally unfunny. I do agree that many of them try to be as outrageous and profane as possible to get laughs. Working clean and getting laughs is very hard to do. I don't mind the profanity when it is appropriate. I cant stand comics that drop the F bomb in ever sentence. It shows a lack of intelligence IMO.

I think Schumer was funny when she first broke out, before half of her jokes became "oh I'm a slut and my p**** is so loose haha!" When that became her schtick and she started to get really political thanks to her uncle, she really lost me.

My definition of terrible is that the comic can't make me laugh. That definition applies to most. If you want to call them average, then you have a low bar for comedy.

Crowder did a YouTube video of him timing how long it takes her to do a slutty/drunk joke. She never made it longer than a minute between the jokes. She's a one trick pony. Trainwreck was a terrible movie too.

Maybe it is just me..but..I don't find potty mouthed women attractive or funny.
