Neil Casey @notneilcasey:

Though generally regarded as one of the city’s top comedic improvisers after years as a featured player in UCB staples Death by Roo Roo and ASSSSCAT 3000, Casey has managed to prove himself a top contender in the written form too. Last fall, Saturday Night Live asked him to come on board as a sketch writer. He obliged. You can still find him molding the minds of tomorrow (he’s a teacher at UCB) and honing his own long-form improv skills at his old stomping ground.


  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.
