    Some of the the stand up jokes she stole from other female comedians are ok.

    Objectification is so much more funny.

    Haven't watched her in anything but the comedy central roasts. I though she was pretty funny in those - not as funny as Lisa Lampinelli but credit where its due.

    The first time I started watching Trainwreck, I thought it was crap. The second time, I couldn't stop watching it. Like.....a trainwreck.

    I see her comic genius. Starting to appreciate her abilities.

    Compared to Chelsea Handler she's a comedic genius.

    I think because she's a woman her blatant sexuality can be a little intimidating.

    When men talk about it, it's normal, but when women are that open and honest, they seem to be criticized.

    Like any comedian, I like some of her stuff, other stuff not so much. But that goes for anyone really, in comedy, music, literature, etc. You can't please everyone.

    She has her moments but more than a bit overrated IMO.

    Put me in the has her moments but overrated camp. I think she leans on the shock factor a bit too much, but her commentary on her life, and its bluntnes, earns some laughs from me. And it's something most legendary comics have ridden to the top.

    It's not my style of comedy. She certainly is everywhere, though. Someone must enjoy her work!

    She was great on the Charlie Sheen Roast. It's been down hill since, in my opinion.

    Not a fan of her humor, but I think she's sexy as hell. Which is weird, cos everyone seems to comment on how "fat" or "unattractive" she is.

    She doesn't do much for me, but I don't think I'm part of her target demographic, so I just chalk it up to her being for a different audience.
