Zach Galifianakis. I wasn't one of the lucky to know him from his shows at Largo or clubs here in New York, but I once caught an early performance of his on Conan's show years ago. He was playing a piano and making the most hilarious jokes and observations. Something deep in the pit of my soul sensed that this guy was really special. His stock is on the rise, and it's so well deserved.
Jack McBrayer. What a sweet, funny brilliant comedian. It's thrilling to see how his character on 30 Rock has earned him some props. Can't wait to see him at UCB's FIT show next month (with Paul Scheer) in New York.
