Lizzy Caplan Calls Out Sexism In Hollywood In The Funniest Way Possible

Janis Ian, FTW.

1. This week, Lizzy Caplan appeared on Comedy Bang! Bang! to debate the age old question: “Can boys actually be funny?”

2. Here’s the complete transcript.

Scott Auckeman: So Lizzy, you have played so many complex, dynamic characters. Do you think Hollywood is in danger of having too many good roles for women?

Lizzy Caplan: I do. Sometimes I think, ‘Ladies we gotta slow it down here, let the boys have a shot.’

SA: Let them have their turn, you know?

LC: Yeah, boys can be funny.

SA: Eh, I don’t know. I’ve never found a boy funny.

LC: Well, I think boys can be funny, okay? I just think maybe they haven’t had the opportunity to be funny for as long as girls have.

SA: They were always raised to be like, ‘Oh, you look so handsome.’ It’s like they never need to be funny.

LC: Exactly.

Reggie Watts: I just think it’s biological. Guys are not funny… because they’re just not.

SA: Their huge penises get in the way, I think.

LC: Yeah, they do get in the way.

SA: It’s like, ‘Ugh, come on. I’m trying to see if this guy’s funny.’

LC: I’m so distracted by your penis in your pants that I can’t focus on all the jokes you’re trying to tell.

3. Basically, sexism:
