Sheng Wang @shengwangtime:

Whether he’s talking about drunkenly peeing his pants or the inherent conflicts of life as a first generation American (he was raised by his Taiwanese parents in Texas), Wang has perfectly honed the kind of relatable, deceptively laid back stand up that’ll leave you furtively tittering to (and probably about) yourself, even if you’re, say, watching his clips alone on your laptop while writing a short blurb about his work. He first honed his built up his chops out in the Bay Area, but for now he’s in New York, and a fixture at shows like the Brooklyn Comedy Festival and Big Terrific.


  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.
