Adam Carolla: Women Aren't As Funny As Men
Maybe this is why Adam Carolla called it The Man Show.
Carolla, who most recently appeared on Celebrity Apprentice, recently told the New York Post that "dudes are funnier than chicks." While promoting his new book, Not Taco Bell Material, Carolla insisted that he doesn't hate working with women, but that they're always the least funny members of the various writing staffs of which he's been a part.
"They make you hire a certain number of chicks," he says. "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."
Females are funny! The Office's Kate Flannery will prove it
Carolla also likened working with female comedians to choosing your basketball team. "You'll take the brother over the guy with the yarmulke. Why? Because you're playing the odds. When it comes to comedy, of course there's Sarah Silverman, Tina Fey, Kathy Griffin — super funny chicks. But if you're playing the odds? No.
"If Joy Behar or Sherri Shepherd was a dude, they'd be off TV," he continued. "They're not funny enough for dudes. What if Roseanne Barr was a dude? Think we'd know who she was? Honestly."
