Thanks to Nerve.com, we here at Laughspin need not rate our favorite female comics by based on their “sexiness.” Although we’ve thought about it, it’s just not in line with what we do, which is to attempt to cover the world of comedy from a journalistic point of view with an emphasis on his or her body of work– not their bodies. But that’s what Nerve’s all about. And that’s why they just released their list of this year’s “Sexiest Women in Comedy,” and I have to say, they did a damn fine job. And I can’t deny that Aisha Tyler (Nerve‘s #1) or Jen Kirkman (#7) are totally hot, as are the other nine (#4 Garfunkel and Oates is two people!). And here’s the thing, it’s not just about looks. Not unlike women who rock, a gal who’s smart and funny and has the balls (figuratively speaking, of course) to get onstage and tell jokes are simply superior to ladies who don’t. Yeah, I said it.
The complete list goes like this:
You can check out Nerve’s list here and read about why they chose the above ladies. But what we want to know is who you think SHOULD be on this list. Let us know in the comments section!
