Comedy is one of the greatest things ever to me because I am a fairly normal human who enjoys laughter. All sorts of things can get a good laugh out of me. But one thing that I’ll never find funny? Stupid, stupid sexism. And coincidentally, there are many comedians in existence who mix up being funny with being grossly misogynist all the time.
Case in point: comedian Adam Corolla. He recently expressed confusion over how a woman could possibly be successful in hosting a late night show. Literal confusion, as in, how could that talking set of boobs know how to say words and make them funny all at once?! I just hope that a doctor will see him about unjamming his foot from his mouth soon or else it might start causing physical discomfort.
But there is a silver lining for Adam. We were so inspired by his sexism that we figured that there had to be other comedians who were keeping the misogyny alive. And, boy, are there ever! So here’s Adam plus 9 other comedians who can’t stop absolutely won’t stop spewing sexist nonsense.

For example: “The reason why you know more funny dudes than funny chicks is that dudes are funnier than chicks. If my daughter has a mediocre sense of humor, I’m just gonna tell her, ‘Be a staff writer for a sitcom. Because they’ll have to hire you, they can’t really fire you, and you don’t have to produce that much. It’ll be awesome.”
Here’s to hoping that his daughter at least has a passable sense of humor so that she can make sort of funny jokes about her future employer’s inability to fire her.
2. Daniel Tosh
For example: ”Wouldn’t it be funny if that girl got raped by like, five guys right now… like right now?”
What a lovely way to show everyone how terrible rape culture is by becoming a human embodiment of it! Wonderful, fantastic.
3. Tracy Morgan

For example: ”Give that pussy up and stop this bullshit.”
I believe that “this bullshit” that he spoke of was what some may refer to as “thinking”. You heard him, ladies. Turn off those annoying brains of yours because they’re getting in the way of other more important things.
4. Seth MacFarlane
For example: The entire “We Saw Your Boobs” song at the 2013 Oscars.
And if you need any more proof, turn on any episode of Family Guy.
5. Jimmy Carr
For example: ”My girlfriend bought a cook book the other day called ‘Cheap and easy vegetarian cooking’. Which is perfect for her, because not only is she vegetarian…”
Let me guess, is the end of that joke that she’s cheap and easy? I feel like that’s where this was going. But you know, maybe he was going to say something about her rock-climbing skills or something.
6. Jim Gaffigan
For example: ”Ladies I hope getting your nails done feels good because not a single man notices you got them done.”
You know, since women live and breathe to please men. Don’t you get the joke?!
7. Bill Maher
For example: ”Now they fine CBS $1 million for Janet Jackson’s nipple. Think what they could get for Hillary Clinton’s cunt.”
Can you believe that these are the actual words of an actual public figure?
8. Eddie Brill
For example: ”There are a lot less female comics who are authentic. I see a lot of female comics who to please an audience will act like men.”
Oooh, I get it! Because doing things like cursing and telling dirty jokes is acting like a man. Ah man, it took my small lady mind a while to grasp that but no worries, I’ve gotten caught up!
9. Jerry Lewis
For example: ”I don’t like any female comedians. A woman doing comedy doesn’t offend me but sets me back a bit. I, as a viewer, have trouble with it. I think of her as a producing machine that brings babies in the world.”
Great, women finally get to be thought of as robots and we don’t even get a choice about which kind of robot we want to be.
10. Andrew Dice Clay
For example: ”She’s a horny little animal. Look at her with her big tits.”
For context, this was about a random woman in one of his audiences. I couldn’t roll my eyes any harder, honestly.
