I've been to stand-up comedy auditions—these folks are a brave tribe of people! Imagine getting up in front of an audience that half expects you to suck, and killing them with hilarity instead. Although some of the funniest people I've ever known were women, it's still hard out there for a lady stand-up comic. Many say there's an unspoken rule about "one woman comic a night" at comedy clubs, and when they're there they have to face the preconception some people in the audience have that women just aren't funny—or shouldn't be funny. (You know—too aggressive.) Sigh. That's no laughing matter, but there is cause to celebrate the hilarious ladies who break through the glass ceiling and thrive. Who was your favorite female stand-up comic of 2007?
