Chris Gethard @ChrisGethard:
Just on principle, we respect anyone with the wherewithal to put together an hour-long public access show on a weekly basis. Really, anyone. But especially someone like Gethard, who’s spent the past four years turning out episodes of his heartfelt, wonderfully scattershot Chris Gethard Show, first at UCB and later at the Manhattan Neighborhood Network. More recently, the Greenpoint resident has been doing a lot of traveling—his memoir, A Bad Idea I’m About To Do, is being turned into a pilot for IFC—but he’s still a bit of an MVP of the local comedy scene, performing gigs like this September’s marathon Week At The Creek.
