Is This A Terrible List, Or Is Old Man Just Old

This is supposed to be a list of the 50 funniest people around right now. Um…wow. I consider myself to be pretty up on my comedy and comedians, and there are seriously like 12 or 13 people here that I’ve never even heard of. When I wasn’t busy not knowing who anyone was, I was losing count of how many people who’s names I’ve heard but who I wouldn’t be able to pick out of a lineup, and spending the rest of the time saying there’s no way this person is funnier than that guy…and where in the christ is Lewis Black!?

I realize that lists like this are totally subjective and I generally make it a rule not to get caught up in how the rankings should have gone and all that crap, but this is just awful.

I’m not going to fix it, but I am going to ask for an education because I don’t want to miss out on things that might entertain me. So…who the hell are the following people and why should I care:

  • Michael Che
  • Daniel Kitson
  • Melissa McCarthy
  • @DadBoner
  • Mindy Kaling
  • Scott Aukerman
  • Kristen Schaal
  • Nick Offerman
  • Tom Scharpling and Jon Wurster
  • Rebel Wilson
  • Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen (I know who Fred Armisen is, but who is Carrie Brownstein and why are they on the list together?)
  • Hannibal Buress
  • Tig Notaro
  • Lena Dunham

Ok, so there are 14 people I don’t know, making this thing even worse than I thought. I’m either out of touch or it doesn’t take much to be considered funny anymore.
