Brooklyn resident (and Russian immigrant) Eugene Mirman is a really great guy and comedian. Eugene has appeared on television, which is still a relevant medium for another few years. Some examples include: his own half hour special on Comedy Central, appearances on Conan O'Brien, a recurring role on HBO's Flight of the Conchords, Bob's Burgers, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Home Movies, Lucy, Daughter of the
Devil and the Adult Swim live action series Delocated.

"If Steven Wright, Mos Def and Dave Chappelle had a baby, that would be disgusting, but it would sound like Hannibal Buress. The funniest young comic I've seen in years." – Chris Rock
Chicago-bred New York-based stand-up comedian Hannibal Buress established himself as a master of "comedic jokes related to personal stories, current events, the streets, and even food" (yes, someone actually wrote and published that line) in ANIMAL FURNACE, his COMEDY CENTRAL original one-hour stand-up special that premiered May 20.
Hannibal Buress has appeared on THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN, LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON, JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE!, THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH CRAIG FERGUSON, CONAN and numerous other late night TV shows. He has also made prime time appearances on LOUIE and 30 ROCK, and is the co-host of the Adult Swim series THE ERIC ANDRE SHOW.
Buress has previously worked on the writing staffs of 30 ROCK and SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, and released his debut album, MY NAME IS HANNIBAL, in 2010 on Stand Up! Records.
Though perpetually touring, Buress considers New York City, where he hosts a weekly Sunday comedy night at Brooklyn's Knitting Factory, to be his place of residence. He lives with zero pets and an XBOX 360, and has a cable package with the Starz network but never watches it.
Nick Turner made his television debut this year, performing stand up on "Late night with Jimmy Fallon." Nick has also performed at the Montreal Comedy Festival as a "New Face," earning a spot on the "Best of Fest" showcase. Other festivals he performed in this year include SXSW, The New York Comedy Festival and the Bridgetown Comedy Festival.
Ted Leo came to indie fame in the late-'80s New York hardcore scene by playing with Citizen's Arrest and Animal Crackers. He then moved to Washington, D.C. where he founded Chisel, a mod/punk outfit that you should already know about. When they disbanded, Ted headed up north to New York City and started playing as Ted Leo and the Pharmacists and eventually signed with Matador Records. He released his first record with them, The Brutalist Bricks, in 2010.
