The 50 Funniest People In Brooklyn

Anthony Atamanuik @TonyAtamanuik:

Having logged over a decade as a regular at Upright Citizens Brigade, it’s no wonder that Atamanuik currently appears in four different shows at the theater, including ASSSSCAT 3000 and The Tony Show With Anthony Atamanuik (the latter of which bills him as “one of New York’s most fucked up comedians”). He’s earned it, if for no other reason than sheer longevity. He also happens to be very funny, though, and landed a coveted regular spot as one of the writers who never actually speaks on 30 Rock. This is more or less the dream, we imagine.


  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.
