Funny. Like ha-ha.

For last two months, I’ve been lucky enough to get paid to laugh. Literally. And here’s the result of all those heart-felt guffaws. A young scruff named Harris Wittels is the star of the article, and deservedly so. But so many others are right up there: Donald Glover reminded me of a young (more sophisticated) Eddie Murphy. Anthony Jeselnik is spectacularly dark and has mastered the power of the pause. And Brody Stevens made me laugh harder than I have in years. I’ll be chronicling the weirdest, most progressive, most interesting bits of it over the next few weeks. Stay tuned. (Photo by Christina House for the LA Times)
