I have no doubts they are funnier than us, I wanna know why!
I know there are funny women in the world, but let's be honest, it's more common to know a guy who's funny than a girl who's funny.

In my personal, humble opinion, women are simply wayyyy too serious (this is not in all instances a negative thing but it's a very bad thing if you want to be humorous). They're too serious about life, too serious about the world... and most importantly, way too serious about themselves. Yes, girls are able to giggle about some stuff together with their girlfriends but they're practically incapable of being self-ironic. Though I'm not exactly a stereotypical guy, this is something I really love about guys. Men don't take themselves too serious. The older we guys get, we realize and acknowledge that most of us remain silly little boys at heart. Women think this is terrible and immature and maybe they're right but exactly this sternness, this constant attempt and need to be mature and serious about stuff and NOT CHILDISH is also what prevents them from being funny. Also, women are much more sensitive when it comes to personal criticism I think. They would never come on the idea of making fun of themselves. For example my mom gets pissed and hurt when anyone says something critical about her looks or her age but my dad constantly makes jokes about getting older and fatter (and he's actually still in a very good shape). Or an other example: when I am together with my best guy friend and one of us farts loudly on accident, we start laughing. I know it's childish and silly but I think it's also cool that we don't take ourselves so serious. We would say something like "wow, I didn't know I can produce such disgusting gases". Most girls I know would NEVER say this. They would be all concerned about how the rest of the world will think of them. Guys often just don't care too much. We assume that we'll be liked by girls despite of our childishness and that is indeed the case. Girls like us (as I believe) for the easy-goingness that many of them maybe don't have. When I make silly, corny compliment-jokes to my girlfriend, I don't even expect her to laugh. I know it's a stupid joke but I still think it's funny enough to say it. In most cases, she involuntarily laughs about them and later says "oh man, I shouldn't have laughed!". Girls would make these jokes because they're too worried about the jokes being stupid and immature etc.. So... in a nutshell I would say that I really love girls but they can be rather stuck-up in this. Women have yet to learn what self-irony is and that not everything in life has to be dead-serious.2

i read somewhere one day that it's because, guys chase girls, traditionally, and they use humor usually. Plus i guess we girls tend to have more empathy, so for example if someone falls, guys tend to see the funny side and we girls tend to care about the people, we tend to see his/her feelings, we're more maternal.5
