Top 15 Comedians

Aaron Berg copy#12. AARON BERG


While comedian Aaron Berg’s varied career has run the gamut from writing (his second book, Modern Manners: Proper Etiquette for the Modern Degenerate, was released last year) to acting, including an appearance in the sequel to Boondock Saints, perhaps the most unique accomplishment of his decades-long career took place in September, when he broke the world record for most comedy shows performed in one night. The astonishing tally at the end of that grueling mid-September day? 25.

“It was very surreal,” he said of the feat, which began with a show at Long Island City mainstay The Creek and the Cave at 4 p.m. and took him to venues across the city for the next 11 hours, ultimately breaking the record at 3 a.m. “Some of the shows were outstanding, and then I had one where there was three people from the Netherlands in the audience who had no idea what I was saying.”

For Astoria resident Berg, that he was even able to pull off such an ambitious feat speaks to the nature of New York City’s comedy world. “There’s nowhere else in the world you could do that,” he said. “That’s how vibrant the scene is here.”
