Streeter Seidell @streetseidell:

Destined to work in comedy — you see his name, don’t you? —  Seidell carved out a spot for himself in the early incarnations of, eventually evolving into the site’s editor-in-chief. Prank War, his hugely popular video series with frenemy Amir Blumenfeld spearheaded the MTV show Pranked, while a recent move to CH’s editor-at-large has freed him up to work on other projects, like corralling the best social media commentary by the Caucasian race into a just-released book, White Whine: A Study of First-World Problems. Meanwhile, he keeps up on its predecessor,, his excellently time-killing blog, and sporadic appearances at Big Terrific, Union Hall and more.


  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.
