12 Queer Comics You Should Know


By Alex Panisch

In honor of the return of Inside Amy Schumer, here are 12 queer comics you should know

Mo Rocca

A contributor for NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! and CBS Sunday Morning, Mo Rocca is still the one of the funniest men on TV even when he’s not cracking a joke. While he may be enjoying himself in the kitchen, we still like when he's writing funny material (for himself and others).

Billy Eichner

The man behind Billy on the Street, Billy Eichner has managed to combine his passion for pop culture with his love of shouting and the results have been nothing short of glorious. As he told us recently, he also loves to follow funny people on Twitter, including: "Julie Klausner, who writes for my show, is hilarious as is Jake Holmes who also writes on my show. In fact, one of the reasons he writes on my show is because I found him hilarious on Twitter. I love Sandra Bernhard. She’s really funny. There are so many people."
