And the Poop or Chocolate Funny Faces of ’09 Rising Star of Tomorrow Comedy Future Man of the Year Is…
He is currently on a stand-up tour I implored you to see. He has a CD and comedy special due out later this year. He is killing it as a guest star on Scrubs. He has a part in the new Judd Apatow movie “Funny People”. He is one of the stars of the new NBC series debuting this Spring from the creators of The Office. His viral videos are some of the most “contracted” on the internet. Things are going good for this guy.
And now he’s been named the Poop or Chocolate Funny Faces of ’09 Rising Star of Tomorrow Comedy Future Man of the Year.
Here are a couple stand-up videos:
The Apatow movie “Funny People” is about stand-up comedy and Aziz plays a comic named Randy. Here is a clip featuring both personas.
Most of you are already familiar with his sketch group Human Giant. Here is my favorite video by them:
He also runs a frequently-updated blog here: http://azizisbored.tumblr.com/; Conducted a very funny interview here: http://blogs.villagevoice.com/music/archives/2009/01/interview_comed.php#more; And hosts his group’s videos here: http://thehumangiant.com/
This is truly going to be his year. Hopefully he shares it with me. And you. All of us. This is truly going to be our year. Thanks, Aziz. We made it.
So John Mulaney’s stand-up video from the first of yesterday’s posts has been “disabled by request.” I don’t know what that means exactly, but I am choosing to take it personally.
John Mulaney: You started the year on Ben Axelrad’s “Funny Faces of ’09″ list. A list that provides both prestige and a not at all misleading title. Now you’ve moved to my shit list. Speaking of shit list, check this out:
Thank you, Aziz Ansari. John Mulaney, that joke is for you.
2009 will be the year we, as a blog family, bring John Mulaney to his knees.
2010 will be the year we, as a blog family, say “Hey, weren’t we supposed to bring John Mulaney to his knees last year? Whoops.”
I can’t count on you people (or me people) for anything.
But seriously, my yos, if John Mulaney doesn’t want inclusion on my list then I’ll replace him. Meet Noah Garfinkel. He is funny. And grateful. I’m sure he doesn’t even care that he’s a Funny Face alternate. http://www.myspace.com/noahgarf
Try and go about your day like this Mulaney debacle never happened. Every time you think about him, he wins.
I don’t want him to win. I want to win. Maybe stop thinking altogether. Just to be safe.
My name is Ben and my blog is very sensitive.
