Stand up comic and screen writer Anuvab Pal and journalist, Shashi Baliga slug it out This subject is so vast in its scope of gender stereotyping, that it is equivalent to saying all black people are good at sport, all Asians train in martial arts or all upper middle-class Delhites are brand conscious. I’ve met as many funny women, as I have men; proportionately, I’ve met funnier women than men. There are several reasons for this. Women actually listen: a critical faculty in comedy, rather than trying to correct or improve your one-liner with their one-liner (annoying). They are observant and curious, which is at the heart of writing anything, funny or otherwise, whereas men often talk to impress ignoring the sort of person they are with. I’m not just saying that to win brownie points from women (of course, I am). Which just proves that again, like a man, I did not listen to the question posed (are women less funny?) and did my own thing, to impress. Another thing I’ve just done in expressing this opinion, is create a stereotype as generic as the subject.
