The 90s were a great time for comedy. SNL was awesome, stand-up was prevelant, and movies weren't all directed toward the same "the whole family will love it" market that they are today. Yet the thing thats been bugging me for a while is that most of the comedic movies from the time (and its even worse today) focus on the guy comedians. Please if you know about a movie that has Janeane Garofolo, Wanda Sykes, Margaret Cho, and Kathy Griffin in it let me know. And yeah, I know they have roles by themselves but why don't they ever put more than one female comedian in a movie. Like how Pauly Shore and Andy Dick (or Stephen Baldwin back when he was funny) got to make movies together. Or Adam Sandler and Norm McDonald. Or David Spade and Chris Farley. Or Will Farrell and every comedian ever. I love BioDome and Billy Madison but where the hell are the female comedies. Like where is the Janeane Garofolo and Margaret Cho crazy roadtrip movie. Why the hell was The Truth about Cats and Dogs even made.
Well at least these days most of these gals have their own tv shows or huge HBO stand up routine. And Sarah Silverman is ruling. And Tina Fey and Amy Poehler pretty much made the first female comedian buddy movie with Baby Mama.
Well here are some stand up clips from the 90s and 2000s to keep you all entertained.
