Think back to the last thrown-together romantic comedy in which some sassy, in-the-dumps-about-her-love-life female protagonist goes over some list of traits she wants in a man. He should be tall, funny, have a nice car, be established in his career, and have a decent education, but not so much education that he is pretentious; or some variation on those things. These are all decent things to ask for and those guys do exist, but such a list is simpler for men (most of the time). Naked and bringing beer will usually suffice to please a man.
But there is one trait that is sometimes forgotten: a sense of humor. Much like how many dudes are disturbingly unfunny, the same can be said of women. Humor is important. Life is rough and spending it with someone who brings to the table a lack of funny, probably makes it worse. Whether your taste is for raunchy toilet jokes, witty one-liners, or clever anecdotes with a hilarious punchline, having a funny person around makes one better. Having them also be great looking is just icing on the cake. With that in mind, here is our list of ten women who have been blessed with a great balance of humor and beauty. We opted not to include actresses who usually work on comedies or sitcoms, and focused on ladies whose careers have been made primarily as comedians, whether it be strictly stand up, sketches or improv, because while good acting obviously requires tremendous skill, comedy is a whole other ball game.
10 Kate McKinnon
We start our list with one of the most talented impressionists Saturday Night Live has ever seen. Kate McKinnon is as fun to listen to as she is to look at. She can impersonate celebrities from Ellen DeGeneres to Hillary Clinton and of course, Justin Bieber. Prior to SNL (which she joined in 2012), she was on The Big Gay Sketch Show and had performed with other sketch comedy groups since her University days.
9 Sarah Silverman
8 Chelsea Handler
7 Amy Poehler and Tina Fey
6 Nikki Glaser
5 Whitney Cummings
4 Amy Schumer
3 Aisha Tyler
Aisha...Aisha!...AISHA!...AAAAAAIIIISSSHHHHAAAA!! If you understand this joke, paraphrased from Archer, you're cool and should be applauded for living so close to the danger zone.
2 Natasha Leggero
1 Iliza Shlesinger
Our number one is a brilliant comedienne from Texas whose beauty is matched only by her charisma and comedy that is a combination of dirty, silly and smart, all at once. She won Last Comic Standing back in 2008, and remains the youngest comic to ever win that show's final contest. From her views on relationships to her amazing impressions of what she thinks other women sound like, her shows are simply brilliant and she is deserving of the crown for hottest female comic out there.
