10 Funniest Women of All Time According to the Internet

Who do you feel is the funniest woman comedian of all time doesn't have to be a standup could be an actress or sitcom star. After polling the internet, here are the top-voted responses.

1. Amy Poehler

“Amy Poehler has to be up there. I loved her in Parks and Recreation. That character is innocent, likable, and innovative at what she's interested in,” one said. “It's as if Michael Scott were likable. Like, they're socially inept but experts at their craft. Though with Michael, he was pretty dumb. Maybe she was more innocent and a bit naïve?”

2. Cloris Leachman

“Cloris Leachman, I love her so much, and she was indeed hilarious, but in the first movie I saw her in, Hansel and Gretel (1988), she was a witch who was terrifying for my three-year-old self,” someone admitted. Another added, “I loved her as Malcolm's evil Grandmother. When she was drugging her fiancé in that one episode of Malcolm in the Middle.”

3. Kathryn Hahn

“Kathryn Hahn killed it in Parks and Recreation and, like everything she's in, Wandavision and Step Brothers,” replied one. Another added, “She's so underrated and gorgeous! She's great in Bad Moms too.”

4. Kristen Wiig

Someone volunteered, “Kristen Wiig is my favorite comedic actress. Bridesmaids is one of my favorite comedies, and I do not know how she didn't get a ton more leading roles after that.”

5. Kate McKinnon

“Hello? Kate McKinnon, anyone. I can't believe no one has said her name here yet,” said one. “I know Kate is top-notch. Other people from Saturday Night Live are ok, but not on the same level as her.” Another added, “Kate McKinnon carries that show, and it is obvious.”

6. Lucille Ball

“Lucille Ball. Without her, there would be no Star Trek,” someone shared. “Her sitcom was hilarious and still holds up. Like, it'll always hold up. It can be her for 10 minutes straight by herself, saying absolutely nothing, poorly handling some situation, and it will just have you holding your sides laughing, wishing it would stop because you're getting a cramp.”

7. Catherine O'Hara

Someone suggested, “Catherine O'Hara —Schitt's Creek, Best in Show, Waiting For Guffman, Home Alone, and Beetlejuice! She is fearless, and she completely commits to her characters. She's an absolute gem.” “I saw her as a guest on Whose Line is it Anyway – it was like she was SO good at improv comedy that the rest of the cast couldn't keep up,” another admitted. 

8. Julia Louis-Dreyfus

“Julia Louis-Dreyfus,” one added. “I was hoping someone would vote for her because she's also up there for me. She still gets a literal laugh-out-loud from me when I watch Seinfeld.” Another added, “Same for her performance on Veep.” “I liked her even better on “New Adventures of Old Christine.

9. Carol Burnett

“Carol Burnett,” another volunteered. “She's brilliant and hilarious, and she's always surrounded herself with brilliant and hilarious people. She was never afraid or unwilling to let one of her co-stars get the biggest laugh of the scene. You can't say that about many other comedic comedy greats with their sketch/variety shows.”

“The late great Jessica Walter,” replied one. Another quoted her Lucille Bluth character from Arrested Development, “Go watch a Star War. And I mean, it's one banana, Michael. What could it cost $10?” A third stated, “Her voice and the sheer disdain combined with wit and intelligence was a perfect comedic foil—just perfection.”
