Today, GQ released yet-another comedy-related feature online. I say “another” because you can see their official Comedy Issue on stands now; the cover subject is none other than a half naked Mila Kunis, Makes sense, right? Eh. You can read more of my thoughts on that here.

Today, the respected fashion mag released the list of the most stylish comedians of all time. You can scroll through it if you’d like, but really it’s just a list of well-known comedians throughout the years— unless you’d like to believe Lenny Bruce or Woody Allen were more put-together than their comedic counterparts. A huge portion of their list consists of dudes who lived during an era where you wore a fucking suit to play in the park with your kids. They weren’t dressing up, GQ. There were no basketball warm-up pants or stretchy-waisted sweat pants back then. George Carlin is on the list, for chrissakes. He wore jeans and t-shirts; and then when he got a little older, he wore nothing but black pants and black t-shirts.

But ok, there’s a few people on the list that deserve to be there: the ever-dandy Paul F. Tompkins, Donald Glover, Joel McHale, Eddie Izzard.

The worst part of the feature, however, is that Greg muthafuckin’ Proops isn’t even on the list. C’mon, GQ. We love you’re giving attention to the art of comedy, but you could’ve asked one comedy nerd who the best dressed comic is, and “Greg Proops” is the answer you would’ve got. I know, I know. He’s not as hip with the kids as, say, Aziz Ansari– who just HAD to make your list.
