HERE ARE 10 FAMOUS MASSACHUSETTS WICKED ACTORS
The super great comedian and writer is from Brookline, MA. Writing for The Simpsons and SNL, O’Brien was once tricked into hosting “The Tonight Show” and ended up on TBS instead. Conan has since left TBS and now hosts a podcast.
This guy literally made me cry with laughter the first time I heard “Harmful If Swallowed”. Cook was born in Cambridge, MA. Cook was huge at one point in the 2000s. He put his brother in charge of his finances and ultimately stole millions from him. Cook has recovered some of his money and his brother is in jail.
Born in Charlestown, MA, Sweeney ended up hosting morning radio on WZLX-FM (100.7) in Boston and made a few cameos in comedies like “Me, Myself and Irene”.
A Boston College graduate, Poehler was a fixture in the SNL from 01-08.
Burr was born in Canton, MA and eventually went to Emerson College. He is known for his controversial and sometimes rude humor. I love it!
Born in Shrewsbury, MA, Birbiglia has a quiet to loud birthing style.
Office. 40 year old virgin. Almighty Bruce. Ron Bourgogne. Do I have to say more? Carell is just awesome and grew up in Acton, MA.
Marjo and I often refer to the time when Clarke went on the Joe Rogan podcast and talked about Rogan’s stand-up at Jay’s in Pittsfield, MA (now the former K&K Liquors) in the ’80s. Clarke is born in Cambridge.
My grandmother used to say “I love Jay Leeeno”. The mainstay of The Tonight Show took over from Johnny Carson in 1992. Leno grew up in Andover, MA and he loves cars too.
Leary was born in Worcester, MA, and used to party. He also played the role of a firefighter on television (Rescue Me). Leary can be loud and is a lot of fun.
