Top 5 Hot Female Comedians
This is my top 5 female comics that are out there and still in your face in 2010. They get me laughing every time. These women talk about everything just like the guys do. Believe me though they are not afraid to either. They are just as raw and raunchy as the men with the cussing and the topics that they choose.
My list of top 5 is not in any particular order because I would be stumped when it comes to choosing who would go first. The top 5 are; Wanda Sykes, Ellen Degeneres, Sheryl Underwood, Sommore and Kathy Griffin.
I had so much fun researching this topic. I wanted to do something a little different because we always focus on the men. Also I wanted to continue on the topic of laughter which my other hub is about.
If you like to laugh and laugh hard then you’ll enjoy these women. The only person on this list that isn’t raw like the rest is Ellen Degeneres but I love to watch her show.
Ellen Degeneres, was born on January 26, 1958 in Metairie, Louisiana. She is well known today for her Emmy award winning show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The show which aired in September 2003, has won many awards over the years. The show has won her countless Emmys for Favourite Funny Female Star, Favourite Talk Show Host and Favourite Yes I Chose This Star.
Ellen’s signature style on the show is a button down shirt with a vest or sleeveless/sweater over it, a pair of pants and sneakers. She starts off the show by dancing with her studio audience. Sometimes she does a short stand up routine.
Apart from her successful show, Ellen has does work in many movies such as Coneheads and Finding Nemo. Her sitcom Ellen which aired from1994–1998 became the place for her “outing”. She announced publicly in 1997 that she was gay.
