Today is the end of Women’s Empowerment Week and there is nothing more empowering than seeing some of our favorite ladies succeed in fields that tend to be male centric. And believe it or not, one of those male-centric job fields is comedy.

For far too long, the focus on famous funny women has been paltry, at best. But the ones that do make a name for themselves are worthy of some serious shout outs. Take a look at some of our favorite lady comedians (both past and present), and let us know which ladies make you laugh the most in the comments below!
