The Most Influential Ladies On The Planet

There are a slew of influences out there in this wet 'n' wild world. Ya got drugs, alcohol, TV, movies, music - just about everything and anything can make an impression on you. We write a lot about those influences and, for me at least, women seem to be the most influential. I'd say 95% of what I do on a daily basis is based on what women want and like. But, which women are the most influential? We're talkin' no questions asked, they yell jump and you say how high. For better or worse, they've got that captivating and/or motivating mojo. Who are they? CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT

9 Male Comedians Who Left Us Too Soon

Comedians often live a tragic life, it's the only job where you're judged purely on whether they make people happy or not. What if they're not funny? Do they think they're funny? In turn, these types of questions can take a serious toll on a person's body and state of mind, especially once you start taking the amounts of drugs that some of these comedians did. The 80s and 90s certainly seemed like a wild ride, it's just a shame these comedians couldn't hold on for a little longer. We'll miss them terribly. See our list after the jump.

The 11 Most Relevant Stand-up Comedians of 2011 [POLL]

First, let's define "relevant". It's "Closely connected or appropriate to the matter at hand". In terms of stand up comedy, that means having a connection with your audience. You're up there on stage, making observations, and the audience whether they sympathize, empathize, or just process what you're saying and they respond in a favorable way (read: they f***ing laugh and clap). Comedians like Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Eddie Murphy and Jerry Seinfeld became huge celebrities because audiences could relate to them in some way. But those guys aren't "relevant" today. So, who is? Let us break it down for you with today's most relevant comedians in our list after the jump.

12 Comedians Who Deserve Their Own TV Shows [VIDEOS, POLL]

It's not uncommon for stand-up comedians to make the transition from one form of media to another, be it television, movies, cartoons or even music. With comedians like Louis CK and Daniel Tosh having landed their own TV programs, it just goes to show that their versatility has allowed them to dominate the television front. But still, there are many comedians that - regardless of their incomparable talent and popularity - have yet to have a show of their very own. Which ones would we tune in to watch every week? Read on to see COED's list of 7 comedians that deserve their own television shows!

9 Comedians Who Should’ve Bought the Farm Before Their Careers Did

Too often in the entertainment industry, great talents are taken from this world before they have a chance for their careers to fully flourish. Unfortunately for others, the exact opposite happens - their careers got so big, they didn't know when to quit. Not that they weren't great in their day, but somewhere along the way, things took a turn for the worst. So instead of letting them continue to pollute the airwaves with over-confident garbage, we thought we'd give these 9 comedians a heads-up with The 9 Comedians Who Should've Bought the Farm Before Their Careers Did.

10 Female Comedians Who Are Almost as Funny as Dane Cook

Most people will tell you that female comedians aren't funny - any of them. Even comic greats, like John Belushi and Chevy Chase said women aren't funny.
