* 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/DaneCook: A comedian who has enjoyed a recent massive rise to prominence, including dramas and comedies in film. His style of humor is manic, varied and very disorganized, which has led to a massive LoveItOrHateIt Internet audience. Like Creator/JimCarrey (and several other celebrities), he auditioned to be a ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' cast member, but didn't make it (Cook auditioned for the 2002-2003 season, and was passed up for Will Forte).

* Creator/AndyKaufman: He found comedy clubs the most receptive venues for acts which were closer to experimental theater than conventional stand-up. His ''WesternAnimation/MightyMouse'' routine was one of the highlights of the very first ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' broadcast, and he was a frequent guest performer there and on the ''SNL'' {{Expy}} ''Series/{{Fridays}}'', where he refused to do a sketch about restaurant patrons smoking weed and got into a fight with Michael Richards (the movie ''Film/ManOnTheMoon'' depicts this with Creator/JimCarrey as Andy Kaufman, Creator/NormMacDonald as Michael Richards, and [[Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch Caroline Rhea]] as Melanie Chartoff). A LoveItOrHateIt performer [save for his success as Latka - an adaptation of one of his stage characters - on ''Series/{{Taxi}}''], but highly influential in his love of experimentation.

* 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, being 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]]'''''.
