Jane Lynch is the only person on that list who has made me laugh, and does so every time I see her in a movie.

This poll easily belong to Tina Fey.

I'd put Lynch at #2 and Wiig at #3. As for the rest of them... meh.

BTW, how come you didn't include Maya Rudolph as a choice? She's right there in that photo you used, you know.

Not a comedian

Leslie Mann. Doesn't do stand up but she is flipping hilarious. I liked her parts best in knocked up.

Who on this list does stand-up regularly besides Silverman? Don't think any of them really do.

Poll is bad...

if only for including Jennifer Aniston and not Emma Stone, she has been great in everything I've seen her in and looks to have a good career ahead of her.

As an actress, I went with Tina Fey, but I love Silverman's stand up soo much! She just cracks me up.

Kristen Wigg... I love her in everything. Her awkward humor is hilarious, and i can't wait for bridesmaids.

Where is Kristen Schaal!

Between The Daily Show, Bobs Burgers, The Flight of the Conchords and those new Xperia PLAY commercials she should easily bump Anna Ferris.

I voted for Tina Fey but this wasn't a fair list

Cameron Diaz is not funny. Jennifer Aniston hasn't been funny since Friends. Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan, Kathryn Hahn (Step Brothers)

I voted for Tina Fey, but really it's a tie between her and Kristen Wiig. Faris is talented, but too often she gets stuck playing the same character.

I went with Kristin Wiig but could have easily pick Jane Lynch. Anna Faris does not do it for me simply because she seems to play the same character over and over.

Thank you. I may be far from the most popular person on this site because of my opinions on current films, but I try to respect others' opinions while submitting my own. I just happen to think that many of these women listed on the poll aren't that amusing, and there were many, many, many others who happened to pave the way for them. I understand that these fine folks can only limit the poll to so many people, and that's why they have the "other" button as a response, and that's what I put.

I understand that these fine folks can only limit the poll to so many people, and that's why they have the "other" button as a response, and that's what I put. I'd much rather watch almost any episode of SNL from the 1970's over anything from the last 15 years, because that's when it was truly groundbreaking, with the absolute best performers, both male and female. I mean, Gilda Radner and Jane Curtin, how does it get any funnier than that? "Jane, you ignorant slut!" Now that's comedic gold right there. What do we have now? Beats me, because I haven't watched it in years, and probably won't for a long, long, long time either. But to each their own I guess. That's why everyone has their own opinion, and we're all entitled to it. So it's all good. I just can't see them releasing "The Best of SNL in 2010", because that disc would probably only be about 10 minutes long. But that's just me. Humor is subjective, and what makes one person laugh, another person will cringe.

I dunno about funniest but Liz Lemon has made me laugh the most out of all of these.

Try this name on for size

How about Lizzy Caplan? a vastly underrated actress, comedian & hottie. Need proof? Two words: Party Down.

Why limit it to just current people? Where's the real comedic talent, like Jane Curtin, Laraine Newman, and freaking Gilda Radner?? How about Beverly D'Angelo and Julia Louis Dreyfuss? Edie McClurg? There's so many you guys left off this list, but I guess you have to pander to the more popular ones. To me, any of the ladies I've listed are funnier than all of the others combined.

I can't believe you had 3 thumbs down. I did what I could to rectify it. As of this reply, you're at 2 thumbs down.

I do get what you are saying, and I neither voted you up nor down, but sensiblites and society overall changes. Of course a poll aksing about the funniest actresses would be of the modern ones, that just makes sense. In the almost 30 years since SNL debuted, the tone of the show has shifted radically a few times. Why be so pissed about it?

It may have to do with the fact that they're not acting anymore. Or at least haven't been in any movie of note, in quite some time.

Comedy is different for everyone...

But I'm 100% with Kristen Wiig. Tina Fey is a very close second.

While I agree with you - Diaz is not very funny - you shouldn't insult those who have the opinion she is by calling them idiots.
