John Mulaney was one of the first comics I worked with when I moved to New York, and I found him very down-to-earth and funny. He's now writing hilarious sketches for SNL.

Whitest Kids U Know
The Whitest Kids were on CollegeHumor back in 2000 and since then their television show has had three seasons on IFC. This is one of my all time favorite punchline sketches.
Baron Vaughn is not only an amazing stand-up, but also an incredible actor, rapper, and performer. He once left me a 2-minute rapped telephone message. I still have it saved.
