Carlen Altman @carlenaltman:

One of those multi-talented people we’d be a little pissy and jealous about if we didn’t like everything she did so much. Besides boasting a burgeoning film career (she recently co-wrote and starred in Alex Ross Perry-directed The Color Wheel), her own jewelry line, and a perfectly weird Twitter feed, Altman also happens to be an excellent standup. She doesn’t do shows quite as often as we’d like (all the time would be ideal), but here’s hoping this list will change that.


  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.
