List Rules Vote up the female comedians that were the best at stand up in the 2000s

Some of the best 2000s stand up comedians might include men like Louis C.K. or Dane Cook, it is also women like Tig Notaro and Maria Bamford who deserve to be considered some of  the best 2000s comedians. But this list is all about your votes! Be sure to vote up who think the funniest female stand ups of the 2000s were — whether it be the jokes of Lisa Lampanelli or the comedy of Kathleen Madigan, there should be a comic on this list to suit any sense of humor. African-American women like Retta, Loni Love, Sheryl Underwood, Rene Hicks, and Sherri Shepard are all some of the top 2000s stand up comedians — and not just simply the best female comedians of that particular decade, but many would consider them some the funniest people of all time.

The best 2000s female comedians range from Saturday Night Live alums like VIctoria Jackson to MAD TV alums like Nicole Sullivan. And you can't make a list like this without including acts like Iliza Schlesinger and Rachel Feinstein, who grew increasingly popular because of their reliable performances at comedy clubs. This is a chance for you to decide who the funniest female comedians of the 2000s truly are. One memorable moment for women in standup comedy was when Lisa Landry, one of the great 2000s comedians, who starred in her Comedy Central standup special while pregnant. You might recognize comics like Mary Lynn Rajskub from current TV shows, but she began as a truly hilarious and widely respected comic.
