8 Queer Women in Comedy Guaranteed to Make You Laugh


Mo Welch

Not only is Mo Welch a hilarious stand-up comic, she's also the creator of the Instagram feed Live From Lombard, a series of one-panel drawings about a depresssed lesbian named Blair. Sounds morbid, but it's actually one of the funniest and most relatable pieces of comedy on the Internet.

Cameron Esposito:

Cameron Esposito has pretty much been everywhere and done everything, including BuzzFeed's Ask a Lesbian YouTube video series and getting Jay Leno to tell America that "lesbians rule" during her late-night TV debut on The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson.

She also has a hilarious story about shutting down a homophobic heckler. SPOILER ALERT: Cameron Esposito WINS EVERYTHING.

She's also responsible for creating what can only be described as the best, worst, most vividly horrifying and accurately gross and wonderful period joke of all time:

You're welcome.

Sapna Kumar

Awkward parents, terrible bosses, and unemployment during an economic recession are unfunny things, but Sapna Kumar will make you laugh at them anyway.

Fortune Feimster

Fortune Feimster has a hilariously honest coming-out story and a dream to one day be employed by Hooters (and other things.)

Watch and learn as she explains the true origin of mason jars:

Rhea Butcher

Comedian Rhea Butcher is a denim-jacketed, leather boot-wearing, self-identified butch with a tough exterior and a heart of cubed tofu.

Janine Brito

Allow Janine Brito to school us all on Columbus Day, the unofficial lesbian dress code, and the right to privacy on Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell.

Her live stand-up is equally informative, educational, and hilarious:

Erin Foley

Erin Foley understands the pain of being allergic to the number 1 ingredient in everything delicious, and being gay and terrible at the gym.


Amy York Rubin

Amy York Rubin is the creator of Little Horribles, your new favorite lesbian Web series (if it isn't already your favorite Web series OF ALL TIME.) Ilana Glazer appears in the episode below, and it's kind of perfect. Also, anyone who eats cookies on the toilet is a friend of mine.

Probably NSFW bonus episode in which Amy York Rubin goes where many people have probably thought about going but have been too ashamed:
