Which pioneering TV female comic are you?

Are you a Lucy, a Carol, a Mary, or another funny lady who changed TV for good?

Although television started out as an industry totally dominated by male entertainers, the arrival of iconic female comics changed all that in a seeming heartbeat. From the hilariously disruptive force of I Love Lucy to Mary Tyler Moore's stereotype-shattering sitcom, some of TV's greatest laughs came from ladies who dominated the screen from the moment they were introduced on it.

Of course, we all have our favorite leading ladies, and when it comes to who gets the most laughs, it's all a matter of personal taste. But whether you like the offbeat humor of original Saturday Night Live cast member Gilda Radner or the red carpet gawking made famous by Joan Rivers, we're willing to bet there's a pioneering female comic to be unmasked behind your unique sense of humor.

So take the quiz and find out which funny female TV star is most likely to consistently crack you up.
  1. What's your favorite female-led comedy in TV history?
  2. How would you describe your sense of humor?
  3. Which hair color do you associate with your favorite female comic?
  4. Which achievement impresses you more?
  5. Pick a female cartoon character that makes you laugh:
  6. Which is more important in an entertainer?
  7. Which common TV combo do you think leads to more laughs?
  8. Which shoe do you think fits your favorite female comic?
  9. Which other talent does your favorite female comic have?
  10. Pick a funny movie that you loved:

Got my hero...;D

Lucille Ball created one of the most cherished sitcoms in all of television, and nobody would've ever seen it if she didn't believe in it so hard that she toured it as a successful live show until they agreed to put it on air. On I Love Lucy, there was little Ball seemed to fear. Whether she was improv-ing dialog or physical stunts, she's the reigning queen of comedy. Your sense for humor clearly rivals Ball's, and that's saying a lot — Lucy is so beloved, they even put her on a postage stamp!

You got Carol Burnett
Carol Burnett's talent is so stunning, she managed to land both a Tony and an Emmy before she got her own show. On Carol Burnett Show, Burnett pulled out all the stops in a time when networks fervently believed that variety shows were exclusively a man's game. Her show was either nominated or won the industry's top award every season, and that unstoppable force is what you've channeled today to sync up your tastes with one of TV's most golden comedic minds.

You got Phyllis Diller
Phyllis Diller has influenced every female comedian who came onscreen after her, with titans like Joan Rivers and Ellen DeGeneres pointing at Diller with all that wild hair as what set the tone for what they did later. That means if you got Diller, you're a distinct original whose rich humor is often copied but never properly duplicated.
