100 Best People 2014: 19-17
She may not often be considered the Queen of Romantic Comedies, what with Meg Ryan and Julia Roberts and such, but Drew Barrymore is a master. Thanks, in part, to Adam Sandler, of course, but she's the best part of their films, The Wedding Singer, 50 First Dates, and Blended. Not to mention Fever Pitch with Jimmy Fallon! Of course there are other films like Whip It and E.T., but she's also done good vocal work on Family Guy and Curious George. A big part is she is just quite likable and not only did she make it through a "rebellious phase," but she also only did one Beverly Hills Chihuahua movie! That's mint.
A new voice, nay, a new genius in comedy. He's achieving mainstream success with roles on Bob's Burgers and Parks and Recreation, but he also has a new book deal (which we'll talk about later) and an exciting new USA comedy with Julie Klausner! Of course, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Billy on the Street, the most consistently funny show in the history of television. Never stop being you, Billy.
One of the smartest and funniest persons to ever exist. She is a hilarious and excellent writer, mainly for television, on such shows as 30 Rock and The Mindy Project. For 30 Rock, she won an Emmy with Tina Fey for the writing! She's brilliant and hopefully, one day, she'll write a book. That would make my life.
