In the age of social media comedy, it's important to remember it's not just a man's game. There are lots of women comedians out here taking advantage of the platform to get their work out here. Keeping that in mind, I've put together a list of 15 of the funniest black women on my timeline that I believe you'll want on yours too.

Khadi has been keeping us laughing since vine. Her serious creativity and originality has anyone watching her videos thinking "how did she even think of this?" She has a serious talent for what she does, and my only question is when is she getting her own show? Creative comedy like hers deserves to be on television.

Amber became famous for her iconic video singing along to Beyoncé's "Drunk in Love." "Beyoncé talking about, "I've been drankin', watermelon. Bitch me too! TF!" Amber has come along way from those days, but she's still the original big body, bomb face. Hundreds of hilarious videos and a few Instagram pages later, she's still hilarious. Not to mention, in addition to her humorous personality, she's inspirational and always giving all glory to God.

Jasmine Luv is my friend in my head. Her skits tend to entail portraying the different types of friends we have and they're always so funny and accurate. If you follow her, you'll always be tagging your friends in her videos. Besides that, her skits are relatable and fun. Pretty and funny, she's a gem for your timeline.

"Jess with the mess." As seen on MTV's Wild'n Out, Jess is hilarious. Always giving her rendition of current events with a personal twist, there will be times you can't help but think she is too much. And I say that strictly as a compliment.

Another woman who has been keeping us laughing since Vine, Jay Cole brings a one of a kind energy in her videos. "How I'ma stop be crazy? How? How? How I'ma stop?" Her DMV accent mixed with her content and delivery make her hilarious.

Talk about a glo' up. Lala has gone from making Instagram videos on the side to making comedy a full on hustle. That should tell you how funny she is. Whether she's doing a voice over, a skit, or just talking, she knows how to make people laugh.

Another Viner (RIP Vine) who made the switch over to Instagram and is still producing content. Her skits are always well thought out and well executed. She keeps us laughing and on our toes, and sometimes even hits on serious issues. Undeniably talented,  she's a beast at what she does.

This hilarious beauty has mastered the art of storytelling. Her distinct voice and her genuine personality makes her funny AF to watch. It's not even necessarily about what she's saying as much as it is her delivery. She's silly and cool, and someone you definitely want to check out.

If you need funny skits, she's your girl. She always has me dying with her ability to dramatize relatable situations. Skits like her 90s vocal coach make her unforgettable, but if you follow her, you'll see her comedy is an everyday thing.

Most recognized for her character Ms. Shirleen, she has several different characters she dresses up and plays on her page. Her comedic genius is truly a God given talent. She keeps it clean and funny, always staying true to herself while still managing to be hilarious. She isn't lying when she says her life is a stage.

The thing that makes her videos so great is her homegirl vibe. While she's funny regardless, the fact that it feels like one of your girls is just clowning and talking to you makes it even better. She's been making me laugh for years now, and I'm excited to see her taking on acting roles because she's definitely a character.

Whether a skit, stand up or just talking that talk, Jasmin knows how to mix comedy into whatever she does. Her strong personality with her silly vibe gives her videos that extra touch. Sometimes she's just being goofy, other times she's speaking some real stuff. Either way it goes, she knows how to make us laugh.

Her and that damn pink robe, bonnet, and her signature duck lips. She kills me with her mama skits. Always yelling at her imaginary child "Peanut," you'll be dying laughing and tagging your friends in her videos. Her character is hilarious cause we all know someone like that. Even when she's not playing somebody's mama, she's playing someone relatable and that's why we love her.

Another go to for the funny skits. Her West Indian roots help to make some of her content as she often hits on them in her videos. It's great because if you know West Indian people, her videos are accurate as hell which adds to the experience. Although she works as an actress and a model, she still finds time to make us laugh, and we appreciate it.

Another person who has been hilarious for awhile now. You might get a skit, you might get her just being silly, but the thing you'll always get is her being herself. She never shies away from an opportunity to be real, even in comedy, and authenticity in humor is the best.
