* Amy Schumer: Popular comedian known for her liberal, feminist views. A long-time cult icon thanks to her show ''Series/InsideAmySchumer'' she became a mainstream phenomenon after her near-universally praised stint in hosting the 2015 MTV Movie Awards and her sleeper hit film ''Film/{{Trainwreck}}'' ([[NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity which gave her tons of publicity in a very bittersweet way]] as there was a shooting at the movie's premiere in a Louisiana movie theater. Since then, she's been a prominent voice for gun control -- it helps that she is related to well-known Democratic Senator and gun control advocate Chuck Schumer).

* Creator/BillCosby: His family-friendly tales of childhood and parenthood became the basis for several [=TV=] shows, including the animated ''WesternAnimation/FatAlbertAndTheCosbyKids'' and the biggest sitcom of TheEighties, ''Series/TheCosbyShow''. While he had other shows and films to his credit prior to these [such as ''Series/ISpy''], it's his '80s work, including copious commercial endorsements, that looks to be his biggest legacy beyond his original stand-up. Was also on the 1970s educational show ''Series/TheElectricCompany'' along with a then-unknown Creator/MorganFreeman (though he didn't stay on the show as long as Freeman did, and unlike Freeman, Cosby doesn't regret being on the show).
