    Are men funnier than women?

    I've never seen a female stand up comedian who's had me in fits of laughter, whereas I find my male friends doing that very often

    Women usually even copy slangs of men, as well as their mannerisms and jokes and ultimately use them to their advantage

      Yes, men are generally funnier than women. But that does not mean all men are funnier than all women. Some women are incredibly funny as well.

      There are intrinsic and extrinsic factors that determine how funny a person can be. Intrinsic factor is intelligence, you will never find a funny person who is dumb. They may be a bad student or might be struggling with something in life, but I have never seen a funny person who is plain and simple dumb. In fact several people who excel in their careers are privately incredibly funny. That is the reason why some people are asked to tell a joke in job interviews.

      Now the extrinsic factor. I'm not funny myself, but have noticed that people who are funny actually got better at being funny with practice. For example, I may have heard thousands of jokes but can only remember the ones which I told someone else. The more number of times I told a particular joke, the better I got at telling it and the funnier it got. I'm not talking about practicing intentionally, rather about number of situations that were conducive for someone to go ahead and tell a particular joke. Now, how many opportunities men get to be in a non-judgmental environment compared to women in which they could try to be funny is no matter of debate, and hence opportunities to refine our funny inner selves is extremely limited for women.

        Yes, men are funnier and have a better sense of humor.

            Name one standup comedian in the form of a woman?

            Take Muzna for example, the woman can only be good at intimidating and scaring people, imagining her being funny is a complete scandal in itself

              Men are usually funnier. You are not amongst them though. But yeah.

                ^ I wouldn't ever dare try and be funny for you, let alone the fact the topic had anything to do with me

                Perhaps, if you start being less clingy or less obsessed about whatever I write, I might give it a second thought

                  Bro..ya need to drop the kush fahmi that I have a crush on you. Maybe clinging to that notion makes you feel good about yourself...and you desperately need that self-validation, I dunnoo???

                  I only answered the question you put forth. Since people usually apply the more flattering generalizations about their gender to themselves too, I merely wanted to give a humbling reminder that exceptions to a generalization will always exist. Bass. Okay? Heppy New Year, khush rehne ki koshish karo.

                That question alone gives me the impression that you've been missing out on some quality standup. Here is one of my fav:

                      Shoutout for a certain Kapil Sharma. Boy does wonders against the elite without forgetting about how mediocre his upbringing has been like. Leaves them looking like absolute ducks in front of millions watching!

                      Legend in the name of a standup comedian, genders aside

                        There are many funny females. One of the funniest Pakistani female is still Bushra Ansari, after decades. There are more funny ladies of course. They all make me laugh as much as male comedians do. I'll post just a few clips here:

                          A legend in her own right for sure. But to equate her comedy on the same levels moin akhtar and/or anwar maqsud have set as standards just wouldn't sound all that right to me

                          Ellen is someone I better not say much about but yeah..

                            Ellen is not funny. Rude and/or sarcastic, yes but not funny.

                            Never been a fan of Ellen or her crass jokes either. The woman apparently I was referring to was Bushra Ansari

                            Highly doubt Bushra Ansari is any funnier than Ellen is. Snarky commentary isn't really humorous to me. Oh, well...
