Ok let’s start by saying that this web series is as NSFW as they come. Jenny Jaffe created this bonkers hilarious story of a neurotic small-town dominatrix whose business is threatened by the new dungeon that just moved in. It’s charming, it’s funny, it’s chock full of whips. Watch this first episode, watch all the rest, then share it with all your fellow kinky comedy fans.
Drop everything. Watch this right now. Watch it again. Send it to your boyfriend. Send it to your girlfriend. Send it to your mom and be like ‘lol thanks for enduring open sexism so I would only have to deal with the covert shit’. Then watch it again.
This candy-colored music video from SNL has us absolutely screaming.
Knocked up? No worries! Luckily we still live in a country where you can end that pregnancy safely and legally. And without safe and legal abortions, we wouldn’t have this hilarious and poignant web series from creators Roni Geva and Margaret Katch. Plus we’d all be pregnant as hell.
This is just the first episode, so make sure you follow them over on Facebook to see all the other shmashmortion stories as they come out.
Bet you never thought you’d see those words together! But this piece from Full Frontal with Samantha Bee combines kickass female Peshmerga members, fearless educators, funny asides, and some truly sick Trump burns, to create one of our favorite documentaries of all time.
If this was a real band we would follow them on tour like Dead Heads. We would for sure sing along with that last song. This live sketch from way back in Second City history is so so so funny, and we wish that we could have a whole album of Baby Aidy singing country songs.
Hooooleeee smokes y’all, this was an amazing year for comedy. There were more tv shows, more movies, more Youtube sketches than ever that were created by funny ladies. Three of the five Grammy nominees for Comedy Album of the Year are women. And so many truly rad broads put out stand-up specials in 2016, everyone from super famous ladies with their own tv shows to up-and-comers just trying to make a buck.
So we’re just thrilled that the incomparable Brandie Posey put all those albums in a list and shared that list with us. Look, there’s a few more weeks in 2016 so it’s possible we’ll be adding to this list. And if you know an awesome lady-identifying stand-up who put out an album this year that we missed, give us a holler on Facebook or Twitter! We want to hear about her.
Read on for all the comedy dopeness, and click the titles to get the albums and watch the specials. Seriously, go buy the albums.
