Gotta Love New Yorkers

There are certain New Yorkers who aren't household names but whose work make an impact and leave a legacy on the city.

One such person is Caroline Hirsch.

No, I've never heard of her either but you've probably heard of Caroline's, the famous comedy club, that she founded almost thirty years ago. And you've definitely heard of the comedians who got their start at her club and who still perform there today: Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Louis CK, Sarah Silverman, and Andrew Dice Clay (amongst many others).

Thanks to her, our culture is a little bit richer -- and a whole lot funnier.

We can't all be geniuses, we can't all be the star of the show. But sometimes we can be the Guy or Girl behind the genius, behind the star, the person who makes it possible for genius to flourish and stars to shine brightly. And that's what Caroline Hirsch has done, which makes her a great New Yorker.
