Some hilarious and talented comedians aren't afraid of breaking the glass ceiling in this new era. For these entertainers, using their platform to support and empower women it's as natural as breathing. Here are the female comedians who are killing it right now.
Nicole Byer is a successful comedian, actress, and writer who is currently starring in a scripted comedy series inspired by her own life story, "Loosely Exactly Nicole," on Facebook Watch. She also hosts the Netflix reality show "Nailed It!" But it wasn't until 2013 that Byer made a name for herself during her participation in "Girl Code." This commentary series featured comedians, who analyzed in minute detail, all the problems young women deal with daily, from period to dating, to strange friendship dynamics and questions about sex.
Ali Wong has quickly become one of the best comedians in the game. While most people are familiar with Wong because of her hugely popular Netflix specials, "Baby Cobra" and "Hard Knock Wife," she has actually worked in the industry wearing a bunch of different hats. The icon was a writer for several seasons of "Fresh Off the Boat" and has made appearances on several comedic TV shows. In 2019, she began voicing the character Bertie on the animated show "Tuca & Bertie," which she also executive produces.
The stand-up comedian is the creator and executive producer of her own Emmy and Peabody Award-winning TV show "Inside Amy Schumer." She also wrote and starred in "Trainwreck." Schumer was born into a wealthy family, but her father went bankrupt when she was nine years old. The actress studied theater at Towson University, worked as a bartender and waitress in New York, and then got her big break on "Last Comic Standing," season 5, where she placed fourth. She is considered one of the funniest women in Hollywood.
Gadsby was born in the small town of Smithton, in Tasmania, an Australian island that she considers almost the end of the world. Being a lesbian in such a remote and traditional locality was tough. The comedian reveals that homosexuality was considered a crime in Tasmania until 1997. Constantly feeling different from the rest and strange, and after experiencing episodes of abuse, Hannah Gadsby began to make jokes to alleviate the discomfort. Now she is considered one of the most beloved comedians in the entertainment industry.
Tiffany Haddish is an actress, singer and model, comedian, and even a writer. Having starred in several television shows, Haddish quickly became famous in the movie world. Her work has been criticized more than once. However, it appears that the negative reviews are of little concern to the actress. Haddish made her television debut in 2003. She appeared on the series "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." A few years later, the actress played the role of Leslie in the serial comedy "New Girl." In addition, she has been steadily rising in the comedy scene for years.
