In honor of International Women's Day and the upcoming Women In Comedy Festival in Boston, we wanted to put together a list of some of our favorite female comedians. The only problem is we ran out of time to add the couple hundred more we wanted to include. So, we admit that this list is by no means complete. Nevertheless, we hope it puts a little bit of a damper on the notion that funny women are few and far between. As you click through, you'll see some faces you recognize as well as, possibly, a lot that you don't. But all are worthy of your immediate attention. And if there's someone you think we absolutely should have included, let us know in the comments.
A favorite on both coasts, actor and comedian Erin Foley has appeared in numerous roles on big screens and small, most notably as the furious fact checker in Cameron Crowe's "Almost Famous."
