comedyEdgelord Ricky Gervais says he can’t name any funny women.

In his latest stand-up show, After Life creator said that the only female comics he finds funny are Dame Edna Everage and Eddie Izzard.

‘Eddie Izzard. She's funny. She's not only a great comedienne she's also a great actress. He was, she was, brilliant as that man in that thing,’ Gervais said of the gender-fluid stand-up.

He also recalled once getting a tweet that heckled him saying: ‘You’re about as funny as...'
