According to Forbes,
"The list, which mainly consists of veteran funnymen, is missing one important component of the comedy industry: women.The male-dominated field suffers from a lack of comediennes and, as with the rest of the entertainment industry, a pay gap persists.For comics to make the cut, their primary source of income had to come from concert ticket sales, which could partly explain the absence of female comedians
