Ariel Schrag @arielschrag:

Cartoonist and writer Ariel Schrag has had (and continues to have) the kind of career (and life) that inspires awe, and even envy—or it would if she weren’t so damned talented. She’s published multiple graphic memoirs, written for HBO and Showtime series, has a novel forthcoming this spring, and adapted one of her books into a screenplay that’s currently being turned into a feature film. All this, and she seems to be friends with Tegan & Sara? Amazing.


  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.
