Ambitious, loud, irrepressible, honest, anxious and rude; New Yorkers get called a lot of things, and certainly we all embody these qualities at one time or another. But we'd like to posit one more adjective just as ubiquitous (but much less recognized) in the makeup of those who make their home in our fair metropolis: funny. The writers, comics and storytellers on this list have met the grit and grime of this place head-on and have found ways to laugh in spite of it. Moreover, they've excelled (and, for the purposes of this list, continue to excel) at helping the rest of us find the comedy in it as well.
