    I've met the two women on Jimmy Fallon's show.

    They were pretty funny.

    You think this is worth telling the world?

    Obviously women are funny! Not sure what you're saying…we're in agreement, methinks. ~ W.

    Most of the time I do not find any of these shows to actually be funny. I find them to be continually referencing things that are understood to be funny, without actually being funny. I find Chelsea to be genuinely funny more often than the other listed shows. I think it is the openness, honesty, and inclusiveness, of Chelsea Handler that both makes her funny and also makes her to be a person to create a comedy writing team to be representative of the audience they are writing for, a society of essentially 50% men and %50 women. I have heard she is making a reality show about behind the scenes at her talk show. This is sheer brilliance and taking the ideas of Gary Shandling, to a modern, new level.
