Will all the funny ladies please stand up? Comedy can be a relatively male-dominated field, and some of my favorite comics (Louis C.K., anyone?) are guys. But there's just something about female comics that warms the cockles of my heart.
If your Twitter feed is lacking in the funny lady department, check out these 25 hilarious women on Twitter and hit that Follow button stat.
1. Caitlin Moran
While a journalist and blogger, Caitlin Moran's sense of humor is exactly mine, and her everyday observations brighten up my feed.
"I couldn't handle that myself without chafing." That would be the kind of top long jump commentary I could offer #Rio2016— Caitlin Moran (@caitlinmoran) August 14, 2016
2. Grace Spelman
This Tweet alone should be enough reason to follow her immediately.
I made a collage of the Animorphs mid-morph bc I was crying laughing @ the book covers this morning. Here they are pic.twitter.com/is7wmkyarC — grace spelman (@GraceSpelman) February 7, 2015
3. Samantha Bee
Former Daily Show correspondent Samantha Bee started hosting her own show, and her political satire is as on point as her personal tweets.
I'm doing great thanks for asking pic.twitter.com/f93MAcdAIg— Samantha Bee (@iamsambee) May 24, 2016
4. Melissa C Rocha
I mean, who doesn't know this feeling? Which is why I think Melissa might actually be inside my head.
"Come with me if you want to live." Jk, just going to trader joes — melissa c rocha (@melisshious) June 30, 2015
5. Alicia Eler
From hot yoga to Nietzsche, Alicia's feed is full of gems. And as a wannabe-teen-goth-girl-turned-yogi, this one hits pretty close to home.
Every good teen goth girl grows up to become a karmic yogi. Namaste, Satan!— writerispresent (@aliciaeler) December 12, 2014
6. Amy Schumer
I love Amy Schumer because I feel like she could be one of my friends. There's something so real about her kind of humor that always makes me smile when it pops up in my Twitter feed.

7. Mary Charlene
YES. Just, yes.
i'm active on Twitter, Instagram AND Tumblr, which means i like jokes, plus posting photos of my food, and i'm offended by everything.— Mary Charlene (@IamEnidColeslaw) August 19, 2016
8. Nikki Glaser
Does anybody know this feeling? Replace dogs with cats, and I'm right there with you.
I'm suffering from "too many pictures of dogs I can't rescue in my Instagram feed-onset depression". — Nikki Glaser (@NikkiGlaser) August 12, 2016
9. Ali Wong
If you haven't seen her special Baby Cobra on Netflix, go watch it. Then follow her on Twitter.
It's 10 degrees in NYC. On days like this, I regret lasering off my mustache— Ali Wong (@aliwong3000) February 20, 2015
10. Caprice Crane
This girl gets it. Which is probably also why she's a bestselling author and screenwriter. Need a giggle? Follow her.
Just got home and changed from one pair of yoga pants into another pair of yoga pants in case anybody's looking for a life coach. — caprice crane (@capricecrane) August 17, 2016
11. Megan Amram
You don't get over half-a-million followers overnight, and Megan has perfected her 140-character-max comedy over the last few years.
Cleanliness is next to godliness in a dictionary missing some stuff— Megan Amram (@meganamram) August 13, 2016
12. Mindy Kaling
I've loved Mindy ever since The Office, and her Twitter feed brightens my day like no other.
We all just livin like off-the-shoulder tops are never going out of style — Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) August 17, 2016
13. Kristen Schaal
I absolutely, positively adore Kristen Schaal. If you're reading this Kristen, please call me and we can go out for coffee.
In my perfect world I would do comedy shows at 4pm, the saddest hour of the day.— Kristen Schaal (@kristenschaaled) August 16, 2016
What more could you want than Disney and Game of Thrones references, all cleverly rolled into one, awesome joke?
"This is my daughter Khaleesi." Actually, Khaleesi isn't a name it's a title. "Well it's her name." [!to!] Nice meeting you Daenerys. — a girl is no one (@OhNoSheTwitnt) August 16, 2016
15. Jessica Williams
If you can't tell by now, I really like Daily Show correspondents. And Jessica is amazing. She's on top of it with her political satire (and her Insta is pretty dope, too).
Every period I have is my body punishing me for not having a baby yet. Quit pressuring me, Uterus. You ain't my damn Mom!— Jessica R. Williams (@msjwilly) February 4, 2015
16. Chelsea Lockwood
Chelsea's witticisms never fail to make me laugh, and I'm sure they'll tickle your funny bone, too.
Lost my car keys so I'm forcing the guy at Home Depot to make me new ones based on what I remember about them. — Chelsea Lockwood (@Chelsea_Elle) July 29, 2013
Do you have an hour to kill? Good. Spend it scrolling though her feed.
Why call it a belly button. It doesn't DO anything when you press it. *click click click* See? *neighbor's garage door slamming up and down*— ElleOhWell was taken (@ElleOhHell) November 3, 2014
