* Creator/LouisCK: His work mostly centers around rather dark comedy, which is mostly based on his own life. He used to make jokes (and [[Series/LuckyLouie a TV-Show]]) about how shitty his marriage was, [[FunnyAneurysmMoment got divorced]], and now he makes jokes (and [[{{Louie}} a TV-show]]) about how shitty it is to be a single father in his forties.

* Creator/GilbertGottfried: Screechy- voiced, obnoxious comedian and occasional kids' show voice actor (he's Iago in the ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' movies, was the first voice of Dr. Bender on ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'', and the voice of the child-hating Tickle-Me-Psycho doll on ''WesternAnimation/{{Robotomy}}'', among other roles) known for thinking the concept of TooSoon is for other people, no matter how badly it affects his career. A staple of Friars' Club Roasts and for popularizing TheAristocrats. Like Creator/EddieMurphy, Gottfried was also an ''SNL'' cast member during its troubled sixth season, worth nothing because Gottfried back then didn't squint, had a full head of black hair, and '''''actually had [[NoIndoorVoice an indoor voice]]'''''.
