Bridget Everett, Bianca del Rio Among Variety’s ’10 Comics to Watch’ 2015


Variety has posted its annual list of up-and-coming comics, and as befits any comedy round-up in 2015, it runs the full gamut from straightforward stand-ups to YouTube stars to sketch groups to “punk-rock cabaret.” The magazine has a solid track record with the round-up; past honorees include everyone from Louis C.K. to Jenny Slate. This year’s ten to keep an eye on are:

Nate Bargatze

Tone Bell

Kate Berlant

Flula Borg

Bianca del Rio

Bridget Everett

Nikki Glaser

The Grawlix


Ricky Velez

Some picks (del Rio is best known as the winner of last season’s RuPaul’s Drag Race) are more surprising than others (both Everett and Glaser have hourlong specials out on Comedy Central this year), but all are deserved. Now get to YouTubing!
