Fiercely funny ladies of comedy
by Laurie Fanelli

We are amidst a golden age of comedy and women are at the forefront of the movement. These funny ladies are breaking down walls both on screen and off with their talent and tenacity. Check out our list of fiercely funny ladies and let us know who are your favorite women of comedy.

June Diane Raphael
In “Burning Love,” June Diane Raphael hilariously balances the fine line between charming and crazy as she parodies the outrageous contestants of “The Bachelor.” The Upright Citizens Brigade veteran stands out in everything she does, using subtle facial expressions and perfect timing to steal scenes from her co-stars Ken Marino, Michael Cera and Adam Scott. Leslie Knope better watch her back because TV Line reports, Raphael will also have a recurring role on “Parks and Recreation” this fall.
