The world of comedy has long been dominated by men, but some of the most fantastically funny comedians are women. This list celebrates the 7 funniest female duos of all time!

7. Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, The Heat

While this flick received mixed critical reviews, its box office and commercial success reveal that fans adore the raunchy comedic stylings of McCarthy and the dorky but lovable delivery of Bullock. Combined, these two made comedy gold! The film raked in over $230 million worldwide and won the attention of the American Comedy Awards. When asked what drew him to the project, director Paul Feig said, “I don’t like women acting like men; then it’s not serving anybody. That’s why The Heat was really important to me. Because I didn’t want to do a romantic comedy. Even Bridesmaids had the romantic elements to it with the Chris O’Dowd relationship, which worked great. What I liked about this one was that it didn’t have any of that. It’s just two professional women in the workforce who are great at their jobs and who are on this adventure.”

6. Lily Tomlin and Bette Midler, Big Business

Loosely based on The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare, Big Business revolves around two sets of identical twins mismatched at birth. Both Tomlin and Midler play two roles, and absolute insanity ensues when cases of mistaken identity ensue when both sets of twins end up working for the same company. The role earned Midler an American Comedy Award and solidified her place among the comedy greats!
