Wrapping-up this year's international Women's Month, we give you five female-led Netflix comedy specials that squash all belief that ladies aren't funny

1/5 Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife

The hilarious Ali Wong goes back to stage (two years after her last Netflix special) with yet another baby bump, comically narrating the horror of giving birth and all that comes with afterwards. From joining Mom Groups in Los Angeles to poor fashion choices and the pain that goes with breastfeeding, this one-hour special is sure to bring out hysterical laughter from parents and those with wild imagination.

2/5 Iliza Shlesinger: Elder Millennial

Still as brutally real as ever, the newly-engaged Iliza talks about dating apps and having lived both the age of landline and snapchats. Ready your stomachs for some serious laughter at her animated storytelling on women’s emotional baggage, how modern dating works, and of course, all the goat-like noises in between.

3/5 Amy Schummer Growing

Five months in her very challenging pregnancy, Amy Schummer puts on a brave face, a deceiving soft voice, and loads of sarcastic remarks. Stories from her chef husband who can’t lie to a fault, the pitfalls of women’s sanitary products, and other mishaps here and there will keep you howling all night long.

4/5 Jen Kirkman: I’m Gonna Die Alone (And I Feel Fine)

To all the single ladies out there (whoop whoop!) this one’s for you. Jen's script for the night goes as personal as it gets—from how she turned into a full bridezilla, to being a divorcée, to dating a 20-year-old. Shying away from the societal norm of having children, the 37-year-old's spill is equal parts refreshing and clever, all downright sidesplitting.

5/5 Lynne Koplitz: Hormonal Beast

Lynne's special may not get you to rolling on the floor laughing, but it'll surely get you clapping and internally screaming "hell, yeah!" every now and then. From lessons on why men should never call women crazy to the three things all men want, this one-hour stand-up is truly entertaining and definitely relatable.
