Adam Carolla is taking heat for saying women are not as funny as men, comments that may have gone over better had he not been the former co-host of a show in which buxom women jumped on a trampoline.
“They’re always the least funny on the writing staff,” Carolla said of working with women in an interview with the New York Post. “The reason why you know more funny dudes than funny chicks is that dudes are funnier than chicks.”
Now a number of comics are rejecting Carolla’s assertion, using — what else? — comedy to put their colleague in his place.
SNL writer Alex Baze used Carolla’s own logic to craft a diss worthy of a philosophy professor: “‘I am a woman.’ -Adam Carolla.”
Upright Citizens Brigade alumna Selena Coppock declared: “Adam Carolla hasn’t gotten this much press since his last big CAREER HIGH, which was being on Dancing With The Stars.”
Jamie Denbo, co-creator of the successful UCB theater show Ronna & Beverly, tweeted that Carolla should be president (of Sudan).
Carolla, who co-hosted Comedy Central’s The Man Show from 1999-2003, has just released a book about his life called Not Taco Bell Material.
