We’ll be honest, not every woman can work blue and get away with it, but Sarah pulls it off. Or were you not aware that she was “f***ing Matt Damon”?

4. Kristen Wiig

It’s impossible to count how many characters she plays on Saturday Night Live, never mind how well she plays them. Well, actually, you probably could count them up, but how much time do you have?

3. Wanda Sykes

Not only one of the funniest things on Curb Your Enthusiasm, the rare times she shows up, she’s just as fantastic on The New Adventures of Old Christine. In fact, she’d be even higher on this list if not for her co-star…

2. Julia Louis-Dreyfus

From Saturday Night Live to Seinfeld to The New Adventures of Old Christine, it’s tough to argue with more than 25 years of genius.

1. Tina Fey

Not only because she plays 30 Rock’s Liz Lemon with a great amount of cleverness, not only because of her chemistry with Alec Baldwin, Jane Krakowski (who just missed making this list) and Tracy Morgan, but also because she writes most of what she says. Pretty amazing, huh?
