Toilet Humor in Female Driven Comedies

The famous diarrhea scene in Bridesmaids and the gratuitous vomiting in Pitch Perfect are an odd connection for the two biggest female driven comedies of the past ten years or possibly ever. Is toilet humor simply that funny or is it an attempt to appeal to the more stereotypically vulgar male crowd?

  • I don't think it is just female driven comedies that rely on toilet humor. I would say almost all comedies have toilet humor, as well as just gross-out humor. – Aaron Hatch 7 years ago
  • I think in the past, toilet humor was more associated with men and male comedians (maybe it was considered "unladylike), but toilet humor can be funny no matter what your gender is. – S.A. Takacs 7 years ago
