Comedian Amy Schumer is about to become Hollywood’s biggest new female comedy star. Her brand new film Trainwreck - which she also wrote – held a work in progress screening at SXSW this weekend, and the reaction to the movie was overwhelmingly positive, with a wide range of critics, including myself, praising both Schumer’s performance and the new voice she brings to the comedy landscape. But while the actress/stand-up sits on the verge of superstardom, now is as good a time as any to point out that there are many, many gifted women in Hollywood waiting for their moment to shine just as brightly.

But who exactly are these gifted women? That’s truthfully an extremely long list, but we have put together a list of 10 who we would particularly like to see get their own big screen comedies and show what they can really do. Read on to find out our picks!

Kathryn Hahn
Kathryn Hahn
Go ahead and try to name a movie with a bad Kathryn Hahn performance. The truth is that you can’t. While the projects she does may not always be of the highest quality, she is always fantastic and has done some amazing character work. Whether she’s acting completely ridiculous like in Step Brothers or playing it more straight like during her time on Parks and Recreation, she has always demonstrated impeccable timing and wit, and deserves the reward of a film to call her own.
