Ok so pretty much everyone is loving pretty much everything about Girls Trip. But the breakout star of the movie might be Tiffany Haddish, comedian and perfect human being. We’re LIVING for all her interviews, and her story of taking Will and Jada on a swamp tour makes us want to become her best friends.
The internet is mean af. All you have to do is type a symptom into WebMD or write the words ‘I am a woman’ on Twitter and you’ll see the dark side of the information age. But what if we lived in a wacky alternative universe where people were nice to each other on the internet and you didn’t constantly think you were dying? That would be… really nice.
Seriously WHAT just happened. No spoilers, but like DAMN REBECCA. This show packed an entire season worth of plot twists into the last two episodes, and we are def still reeling. But while we wait for this season to hit Netflix so we can binge it over and over until season 3 starts, let’s all watch the Rebecca reprise that made us laugh, cry, and feel ALL the feelings.
Nasim Pedrad can do literally any impression. Don’t believe us? Check out her Wikipedia page. But one we def didn’t know about is her dead-on impression of Aziz Ansari. It’s a crime that this sketch got cut, because we’d have been watching it every dang morning.
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.

Sometimes best friends do things they regret. And in the best of friendships, they both realize that it’s time to apologize and make amends. But like…. who goes first though? Crazy-Ex is crazy relatable this season, and we’re living for both the Rebecca/Donna drama and the incredible wigs.
