Esquire's List of 2012's Best New Comedians: Relevant to Portland's Interests

Posted by Alison Hallett on Thu, Jul 26, 2012 at 8:59 AM

Esquire asked a "crack panel of six industry insiders" to name their favorite new comedians of 2012. The breakdown between "insider" and "new comedian" is a bit mystifying (Amy Schumer in the former category, Tig Notaro in the latter? Whatever, Esquire), plus it's a fucking slideshow, so don't bother actually reading it. The important bits:

Aziz Ansari recommends the very funny Chelsea Peretti, who will be at Helium at the end of August. (Helium's August lineup just kills it: Brian Posehn, Bruce Bruce, Maria Bamford, Todd Glass...)

And Chris Hardwick gives a shoutout to former Portland favorite Ron Funches. Three weeks ago we would've said: Congrats Ron! But you're dead to us now.
