Top Five Comics to Watch Out For in 2013

Categories: Top Five, comedy


3. Sammy Obeid

This diligent and forever grinding Nor Cal native is doing big things and if you're not familiar, it's time to get in the know. Sammy has had the chance to perform along with some comedy greats like Dana Carvey and Russell Peters, he's been on America's Got Talent, and even had the opportunity to show off some skills on the Food Network's, "Throwdown! with Bobby Flay." All of that doesn't even begin to scratch the surface when it comes to what Sammy has to offer. He's the founder of KO Comedy and been nationally-touring all over dropping smart and thought provoking comedy that everyone can (and should) get down with. In 2013, this comedic powerhouse is no doubt going to be doing even bigger things so do yourself a solid and check him out so you can get familiar with Sammy Obeid. You can thank us later.


2. Esther Povitsky

Called "Little Esther" for obvious reasons, this young looking spitfire's comedic star is surely on the rise. In-between rocking comedy stages with her quirky and playful style, Esther has been showing of her acting chops as well as hosting popular podcasts on Deathsquad TV and on Feral Audio. When it comes to Esther, it's easy to see that she loves to laugh at herself and in turn, delivers the laughs almost effortlessly. She was also tapped to shoot her own pilot with MTV so in the upcoming year, we are all hoping to see a lot more of her You go girl!

As a comedy club aficionado I approve this list. The only other comic I would maybe add is Gina Yashere.

@Drokcomedy Much appreciated. I'm just hoping some of @GrantCotter's fans will want to sex me now.
