The 50 Funniest People In Brooklyn

OPENER_NEWEST


“Hey Brooklyn, do you like to laaaaugh?” We’d like to think that’s how we’d start off our set if given the opportunity to take a crack at some local standup, anyway. For some reason, nobody ever asks. Probably because in spite of a much-discussed exodus of talented comedians to L.A. over the past few years (TV pays, we get it), New York’s comedy scene is thriving. Particularly in Brooklyn, which has quietly become home to some of the best emerging talent on the east coast (not to mention some of the very best standup venues). As such, we’ve selected 50 of them that we’d like you to know about, if you don’t already. We’re not being sticklers, here: some of the people who made the cut don’t technically live in the borough (or even New York State), but all of them contribute to the local comedy scene in ways we deem to be crucial. Mostly, though, they are all very, very funny.

  1. You forgot Sara Schaefer. She is the fucking greatest. I hope this mistake haunts you for the rest of your yuppie existence.

  2. This list is way too dude-heavy! Are there really so few women in Brooklyn who count as funny enough? The article should be called “The 42 Funniest Men in Brooklyn.” And no, I don’t have a sense of humor about this.

  3. Oh, please. Catie Lazarus is sort of funny, but she’s mostly exhausting with neurotic energy, endlessly complaining about being poor – while wearing designer clothing, traveling around the country, and living on a trust fund, and acting like she’s somehow entitled to earn a living from comedy.

    • So happy Catie Lazarus is on the list! She’s hilarious comedian and writer. Nedster, however, sounds like a bitter, uninformed douche.
