10 Male Comedians Who Think Sexist Jokes Are Funny

That's Sexist

(via)

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.

1. Adam Carolla

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.

    Not gonna lie, while I was stoked to see a surprise Tracy Morgan performance when I first moved here, I was so disappointed when he started spewing off gross comments about women and vaginas and slutty mcslutsluts, etc.

    • Olivia Wilson

      Apparently his specialty is jokes that make everyone but him cringe/rage to death.

  • Katie

    No. Jim Gaffigan can’t be on this list with all these other actual gross misogynistic comedians!

    • Olivia Wilson

      I dunno, sexism is sexism..

    • Mystik Spiral

      That seemed like more of a self-deprecating joke than a comment against women. If you have more examples of Jim Gaffigan telling sexist jokes I’d love to see them, because I don’t believe he belongs on this list. At. All.

    • Olivia Wilson

      You may be right. I put him here because he did publicly make a joke that I found to be sexist. So that’s in accordance with the title and all. However, to be fair, he doesn’t seem to be as much of a repeat offender as the rest of the guys here.

      But, again, sexism is sexism.

      Ha, same!

  • Lulu

    What I love is that, bar one or two people on this list, I’ve never heard of any of these guys. I know it’s probably cos I’m a Brit rather than an American, but when I think of all the great American comics I have heard of, Mindy Kaling, Tina Fey, Amy Poeler etc. all immediately jump to my mind, rather than Seth McFarlane or only-good-in-30-rock Tracy Jordan.

    • Olivia Wilson

      I’m glad that word of our best is getting around rather than of our worst!

    • Samantha Escobar

      Seconded!

    Seriously, I am not a huge Seth MacFarlane fan. I think he’s a bit of a pompous asshole. HOWEVER, the whole “We Saw Your Boobs” bit at the Oscars has been so misunderstood that it makes me worry for the future of humanity. Do you guys not get that it was satire? The whole point of it was to poke fun at the glaringly obvious problem in Hollywood of actresses feeling as if they have to do a “tasteful” nude scene in some artsy film in order to be seen as real actresses. A dude does a nude scene and everyone’s like “Gross! Schlong!”, but a woman does and the reaction is “Oh, she’s such a brave and talented performer. Let’s give her an Oscar!” THAT’S the point he’s making. Geez, you guys are supposed to be writers, you can’t figure out something as simple as this?

    • Olivia Wilson

      I don’t think that you should worry for the future of humanity because a bad joke was misunderstood. Also, even if you don’t agree that that joke in particular was sexist, don’t worry too much because there are a thousand others in Seth’s arsenal.

  • J_Doe5686

    I kinda expected to Daniel Tosh to be on the list along with Seth MacFarlane. And I must admit that I have a soft spot for those two. I also expected for Adam Carolla to spearhead the list. I wish they would stop making sexist jokes, that’s all. Anyways, what respectable woman is going to pay to see Andrew Dice Clay? He’s a chauvinistic pig. A sad excuse of human being.

    • Olivia Wilson

      I couldn’t BELIEVE my eyes when I saw video of women (men too, really, but especially women) laughing along to his chauvinistic jokes. I can appreciate crude humor but his jokes are another thing entirely.

    • J_Doe5686

      I know, right?! It’s beyond crude.

  • simoneutecht

    Jim Gaffigans wife co-writes all of his material so that could very well be one of hers.

    • Olivia Wilson

      Didn’t know that, but that could be right!

  • FemelleChevalier

    That Daniel dude’s joke is awful… -_-

    On a random and (probably) inappropriate note, I found this on the internet:

  • Ben Perez

    What can you not even take a joke? It’s not like they only make fun of women!

  • layla

    um,…..add Bill Burr and Doug Stanhope to the list. They give, “it’s only a joke!” a whole new meaning. A psychology professor told me that people basically laugh at something for one of two reasons. First, they are uncomfortable with the subject matter. In this instance, laughter is a way to express that discomfort. This is why humor breaks the ice on taboo topics and awkward situations. Second, the person laughing believes the joke is partially true. Hence, they are in on meaning the joke! I think the above are both funny comedians, but understand they are basically pandering to their demographic. This is why I am still able to listen to the funny stuff, and throw out the inherently awful stuff that passes for humor. Ex. fat shaming, woman shaming. In certain contexts it’s funny, in others it’s not at all. Apparently I don’t have a sense of humor if I do not like it, which is the biggest load of bullshit I’ve ever heard. When you hear them on podcasts, it’s pretty clear that even when they are not joking, they still believe these things to be true. Therefore, it’s not just joking around or for some higher comedic purpose 100 percent of the time.

    I agree with Katie. Listen to the above comics for a few, and Jim won’t even make the list!

    Also, it’s so ironic how they complain about being average looking guys who can’t get the pretty girls, but those girls are all they want to pursue. As if all of us in life are simply entitled to uber attractive, young, fit partners. Then they turn around and verbally bash these same woman, as well as the “ugly” ones they don’t want. That is not a joke. That is called male entitlement. To some extent, woman do this as well. So we are not immune either.

    misogynists and feminists are the opposite side of the same messed up coin. Kinda like Republicans and Democrats. They sit there dueling it out to see who comes out on top. Both claim some noble, superior position. Both look stupid. That’s the end of my soap box.

  • Roger Daily

    Sexism is hilarious as is racism, social snobbery and jokes about people’s misfortune.
