Hey, ladies!

Jill in the BoxToday is International Women’s Day, so let’s celebrate with some of the smartest, funniest women we know. Here’s our starter list:

Read: Bossypants, Tina Fey’s autobiographical collection of essays. It’s first among the recent trend of celebrity funny women confessionals, and by far the best.

Watch: Carol Burnett, Lucille Ball, Mary Tyler Moore. Joan Rivers and Phyllis Diller on the old Tonight Show. Veep, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec — or any show where the funny woman isn’t relegated to the role of wife (sorry, Laura Petrie) or trusty sidekick. Among up-and-coming comedians, we suggest Chelsea Peretti: One of the Greats and Jen Kirkman: I’m Gonna Die Alone (and I feel fine) on Netflix, and Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo, on HBO.

Do: Vote. Because what’s happening right now isn’t funny at all.
