HERE ARE 10 WICKED FAMOUS COMEDIANS FROM MASSACHUSETTS

1. CONAN O'BRIEN

The super tall comedian and writer is from Brookline, MA. Writing for The Simpsons and SNL, O'Brien was once cheated out of being the host of "The Tonight Show" and wound up on TBS instead. Conan has since left TBS and now hosts a podcast.

2. DANE COOK

This guy literally made me cry laughing the first time I heard "Harmful If Swallowed". Cook was born in Cambridge, MA. Cook was massive at one point in the '00s. He entrusted his brother with managing his finances and eventually stole millions from him. Cook has recuperated some of his money and his brother is in prison.
