Funny Television Moms We Love: Are Their Kids Future Class Clowns?

Tina Fey is currently expecting her second child

Sure, most of us can crack a good joke from time to time but how well would we hold up doing a live skit on Saturday Night Live?  Making your little one giggle with joy is part of every mother’s job description, but these funny ladies can sure produce some strong belly laughs for just about everyone.

There are plenty of funny mommys in Hollywood, but for some of television’s leading funny ladies such as Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Leah Remini, being comedians is a full time job both in and out of the house.  These women make us laugh every night with their hilarious skits before going home and telling their children some Emmy-award winning Cookie Monster jokes.

Check out our gallery of some of the funniest mothers on television.  With good comedy genes, their children have a good chance of winning the class clown crown in their futures, too.
