David Cross:

Former cover boy of Brooklyn Magazine, Cross is also the most frequently spotted celebrity by staffers, because we work in DUMBO, where, other than Cross, we only occasionally see Jeffrey Wright in Starbucks. And Wright is great, but he wasn’t in Arrested Development, now was he? And although he might not be doing this to be intentionally funny, Cross is always good for a laugh when we see him, because the man wears shorts even when it’s really, really cold out. He loves his shorts. We guess that has something to do with being a Never-Nude?


  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.
