This local comedy fixture frequents Union Hall in Park Slope, where he lives. But more people probably know him for his Twitter account, which has more than 5,000 followers and posts about upcoming shows, current events, and pop culture. (Eg., “Yo I hope #Obama comes through @doubleWindsor for a dope-ass @patlafrieda cheeseburger while he’s in my hood in Bucktown today. @Flotus“)


  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.
