12 Of The Funniest Female Writers Writing Right Now

As much as we'd love to have a Martini with Dorothy Parker or a white wine with Amy Schumer, we're not in the Algonquin Round Table are we're not Jennifer Lawrence. The closest we can get to our favourite funny females are their memoirs and other writings, which – to be honest – often do the job.

So, whether you’re looking for a Christmas present idea or simply need something to dip into while you’re on the loo, these are our recommendations for some of the funniest female writers putting finger to key right now. We’re not going to include Lena Dunham and Caitlin Moran here because, frankly, if you haven’t heard of them, then we’re gonna need a bigger list.
