People magazine gathered some of US leading funnywomen — Samantha Bee, Tracee Ellis Ross, Allison Janney, Kate McKinnon, and Niecy Nash — to weigh in on the age-old question: Can men be funny? As Samantha Bee put it: “It doesn’t feel possible to me. Their voices are so shrill. Like their voices are weird to my ears that when I hear a man say a joke, it feels grating.”  As black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross says, “When I think of stories about men, I think … kitchen.” So men can’t be funny? According to Allison Janney, the star of CBS’ Mom: “Personally, I haven’t seen it.”  So, it would seem that they put their finger on the ugly truth behind Hollywood’s institutional sexism: Men just aren’t funny.
