Deadline gathered Jessika Borsiczky (House of Lies), Emily Kapnek (Suburgatory), Elizabeth Meriwether (New Girl), and Emily Spivey (Up All Night) together to discuss the standard “important” questions about women in comedy they are often asked to discuss. However, at the end they got to what’s really important by asking which is funnier penises or vaginas:
SPIVEY: Penises are funnier. I don’t know if that’s just because they’re out there and they’re weird and they are a lot less mysterious. I don’t think people like to think of girls that technically, they like to think of pretty curves and boobs and softness and sweetness, and they don’t really want to get down into the mechanics of what’s going on with their lady parts. But I love a good dick joke; I’ll always laugh at a dick joke.BORSICZKY: Penises are funnier – the degree to which men are controlled by them will endlessly amuse me. But I am all for seeing more vagina and hoo-ha in the network television world, that could only improve our situation.KAPNEK: Oh my God. I don’t think penises are that funny. I think maybe balls are the funniest. I don’t really find vaginas that funny, my vagina is very serious — just kidding. We had a reference to a vagina in our pilot, but I don’t feel that vaginas come up a whole lot in our show. But yeah – balls win the day.MERIWETHER: They’re both pretty funny. Put them together and they’re even funnier.
