Adam Carolla Slammed for Saying Men Are Funnier Than WomenJune 20, 2012
Adam Carolla just turned the tables on himself.
The funnyman became the laughingstock today after word got out that he told The New York Post that female comedy writers were usually the least funny people in the room.
"The reason why you know more funny dudes than funny chicks is that dudes are funnier than chicks," Carolla cracked while promoting his new book, Not Taco Bell Material. Given a chance to, er, explain, he continued: "When you're picking a basketball team, you'll take the brother over the guy with the yarmulke. Why? Because you're playing the odds. When it comes to comedy, of course there's Sarah Silverman, Tina Fey, Kathy Griffin-super-funny chicks. But if you're playing the odds? No."
Leaving the other problems with that statement by the wayside for now, let us introduce Carolla to a whole bunch of funny people, dudes and chicks alike...
"Wait, Adam Carolla, is he the one who did the voice of the parrot in Aladdin??? He makes me giggle," tweeted Girls creator and star Lena Dunham.
"Currently collating today's 50,000 Twitter jokes about Adam Carolla by gender. Should be able to settle this shortly," noted record-setting Jeopardy! champ Ken Jennings.
"The biggest impact this whole Adam Carolla scandal has had is discovering 95% of people have no idea how to spell 'Carolla,'" tweeted writer and comedienne Jenny Johnson.
"Thank you, Adam Corolla. Your terribleness gives all of us the opportunity to scream how NOT TERRIBLE we are!! YAY!" added Chappelle's Show cocreator Neal Brennan, who perhaps unintentionally proved Johnson's point as well.
