The reason why you know more funny dudes than funny chicks is that dudes are funnier than chicks. If my daughter has a mediocre sense of humor I'm just gonna tell her 'Be a staff writer for a sitcom. Because they'll have to hire you they can't really fire you and you don't have to produce that much. It'll be awesome.'
It was a joy to be a part of the team that created Round The Horne. I was involved with the show at a time of my life when I was very happy. and that happiness overflowed into the scripts.
