“I’m sure she’s a nice woman, and I respect her politics. But she is not a comedian, and it’s disgraceful that there is not a female comedian as a judge.”
The whole idea of having comedians compete is dumb to begin with, but putting a non-comic on the panel makes it worse, and doing it without at least one female standup as a judge makes it ludicrous.
Perhaps the producers don’t have contact information for Paula Poundstone, Kathleen Madigan, Nikki Glaser, Iliza Schlesinger, Ali Wong, or Katherine Ryan. Or maybe those smart, funny women (and others) wanted nothing to do with the whole idea.
