Wanda Sykes kicked off the year strong for funny females as the host of the annual White House correspondents' dinner. Ellen DeGeneres and Chelsea Handler kept us laughing throughout 2009 with their talk shows, while Tina Fey continued to show off her winning brand of comedy on 30 Rock. And don't forget Amy Poehler who broke away from SNL to star on her own sitcom. Or Samantha Bee, who stuck to fake news on The Daily Show. But I'm sure that decades down the road we will remember 2009 as the year Levi Johnston escorted Kathy Griffin to the Teen Choice Awards.
