Will Hines @willhines:

Though active in the local standup circuit and a regular at UCB performing with his improv group The Stepfathers, Hines is perhaps best known for directing and acting in videos alongside the likes of Michael Cera, Donald Glover and The Office’s Ellie Kemper for Adult Swim, Funny or Die, CollegeHumor and more. Among an impressive clip reel is reality-show parodies, faux commercials, and a spoof trailer for Checkmates, a class-warfare drama about chess “coming this fall from the makers of Save the Last Dance and The Cutting Edge and Step Up.” That’s real pedigree. It’s maybe the best two minutes you’ll watch on the Web today.


  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.
