Splashlife and Funny or Die teamed up to come up with this list of young comedians to watch, and I was surprised to see one name on this list. Can you guess which one? I bet you can.

  1. You cleaned up really well for that photo. Props. You’re like a were-boy.
    Why the fuck were we left off this list? There wasn’t one Canadian on this list. 30 is fast approaching.
