There is a tired trope that women are not capable of coming up with funny jokes as men do. The infamous and hilarious female comedian Carol Burnett has re-told her story countless times about the path to her own variety TV show, and it always includes a variation of the phrase “comedy is a man’s game.” Well, it’s time to shut that old idea down.

Social media has given us all a new platform to show off our best jokes, comedy chops, and funny tweets and some of our favorite accounts are run by women.
