The birthday girl for July 12 is Loni Love.
It just occured to me that I can think of three female comedians who have a Cancer sun sign: Loni Love, Phyllis Diller and Lisa Lampanelli. I can’t do that for any other sign. I can think of two Scorpios off the top of my head: Judy Tenuta and Kathy Griffin. That’s it. One Aries (Rosie O’Donnell), one Taurus (Totie Fields), one Gemini (Joan Rivers), no Leos, no Virgos, no Libras, no Sagittarians, one Capricorn (Paula Poundstone), one Aquarius (Ellen Degeneres) and one Pisces (Chelsea Handler), as well.
I’m sure I’m forgetting a whole bunch of famous female stand-ups whose inclusion would make me rethink these slapshod statistics, but it’s odd to me that Cancer would be a the top of this list. I have a Cancer moon, though, and I’m hilarious. Maybe there’s something funny about this sign that I’ve never really explored before. Hmm . . .
