Variety’s 10 Comics To Watch: 2022

The trade magazine usually waits to time this announcement for late July, celebrating their “10 Comics To Watch” at Montreal’s Just For Laughs, but Variety is out with the 2022 list now!

For anyone who hasn’t been keeping track, the Variety list is really more of who’s already hot, and who’s already got stuff in the show-business pipeline, so watching them in the given year isn’t going to come as a shock to anyone. More of an honor along the lines of stars in the making? Anyhow. At any rate. Here’s who Hollywood says is on the rise this year in comedy. Congrats!

And yes, they will be feted (should they choose to attend the fest) in Montreal at the end of July.
