Natalie Shure @nataliesurely:

Jokes about history and genocide are Natalie Shure’s favorite kind of jokes, the history buff/journalism grad student/standup comedian told Bedford & Bowery last month. This has translated into an useful how-to-seduce-British-gentlemen-and-other-literary-characters guide for The Frisky (“Your best bet is probably to contract tuberculosis, which is sure to coax him into your bed when he finds your rosy flush and hacking cough impossible to resist”) among other grad-school-witted writings throughout the years. Aside from hosting a monthly show at Greenpoint’s Palace Café, Shure makes the rounds at The Charleston, Alligator Lounge and other borough standbys.


  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.
