Magda Szubanski , aka one of Australia’s funniest people, has slammed a Daily Wire host for his claim that women are only funny when they’re “emulating a man.” Yep. Women can’t be funny, apparently. Szubanski, who won our hearts as Sharon Strezlecki in Kath & Kim, was not having a bar of this “comedy is inherently masculine” bullshit, and took to Twitter to put the host back in his place. Had to put up with this shit decades ago CANNOT BELIEVE this circle jerk of deeply unfunny tonks STILL spouting this crap!! 1 word 2 say 2 u – Kath & Kim (written, performed by women) most successful sitcom in Oz Tv history My mum, even with dimentia, was wittier than these twats https://t.co/3VuhMSeVCc — Magda Szubanski AO (@MagdaSzubanski) September 7, 2019 The roundtable was filmed for Ben Shapiro’s Daily Wire outlet. The segment featured a bunch of men gathered around a table in a poorly decorated room to voice their thoughts on the issue, despite absolutely nobody asking. Now, I don’t just inherently hate anything Ben Shapiro says or does. I can at least understand his perspective on some issues, I’m not being a total hater here. However, there’s something absolutely ridiculous about a bunch of incredibly un-funny men sitting around trying to say that women can’t be funny unless they’re trying to be men. Sorry “dudes”, but have you seen Kath & Kim? Anything by Tina Fey ? Julia Louis-Dreyfus ? But Magda, who is a hilarious person, NOT just a hilarious woman, doesn’t need me to defend her. She fired off two more tweets to back up her original post. And that’s supposed to be the slam dunk? Like Christopher Hitchens is an authority? He also supported the invasion of Iraq. This comment on women and humor has about as much credibility. My Scottish mother left school at 14 & would have run circles round his pompous Oxford ass https://t.co/MjiBz5XxqL — Magda Szubanski AO (@MagdaSzubanski) September 7, 2019 Well dominant culture has no urgent need/want 2 understand the sub-dominant. So course they won’t get the jokes. BUT we always LOVED fact that largest demographic for “Big Girl’s Blouse” defied expectations & was men 18-39 So. Reckon we officially un-gendered comedy back in 1995 https://t.co/ugmlLc3S2i — Magda Szubanski AO (@MagdaSzubanski) September 7, 2019 Magda’s impressive resume includes Babe , The Crocodile Hunter (still crying), Bran Nu Dae, Happy Feet and Neighbours , so if you think she’s not hilarious, you’ve got incredibly bad taste. This woman is an Australian national treasure and it looks like we need to send the Daily Wire team a box set of Kath & Kim so they can learn what real humour is. But perhaps the best thing to come out of Magda’s tweets was the huge outpour of love and support for kickass females in the comedy industry. And, of course, the absolute roasting of the guys who tried to say women aren’t funny. "Humour is inherently masculine". No. *Some* women use humour in a "masculine" way, but there are plenty of funny, feminine women. Their humour is subtle and intelligent. Tina Fey, actors like @sarahgrafferty on Suits, @jameelajamil , even Jean Hagen ('Singin' In The Rain'). https://t.co/1hh7e57DbI — Wendy Lang (@wendylang) September 7, 2019 “comedy is inherently masculine” only because men like you are a complete joke #GTFOH — justblegit (@justblegit) September 7, 2019 Say I accept their notions of what's masculine and what's feminine. I still don't think there's anything about the humor of Rita Rudner or Joan Rivers or Ali Wong that's "inherently masculine." — Ara Vartanian (@aravartanian) September 7, 2019 Almost all of the replies to the original tweet, as well as Magda’s, are celebrating how hilarious women are, or pointing out the fact that men like this are jokes. If you need a good laugh for your Saturday afternoon, I encourage you to have a read through the replies because the Daily Wire hosts got absolutely annihilated.
