Village Voice honors Kristen Schaal, Murderfist in its 2010 Best of NYC issue

As you may have gathered from the headline, Village Voice's 2010 "Best of NYC" issue is out this week, and managed to have room for two comedy categories this year.

Is that good news?

It is if you're Kristen Schaal, whom the VV named Best Comedian. You can see Schaal perform Monday nights with comedy partner Kurt Braunohler in the revival of their Hot Tub variety show at Littlefield in Brooklyn, many Wednesdays with The PIT's house team Big Black Car, sometimes on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart as a correspondent, and in a variety of other TV and movie projects.

It also is if you're Murderfist, the outrageous collection of individuals named by VV as Best Sketch Comedy Group. You can see them get raunchy for laughs monthly at The PIT, and sometimes elsewhere around the city.

Congrats to both of them.

To the rest of you, you're still the best in my eyes. Except for those of you who aren't. You know who you are.
