Karma and Greg

We all know Greg Behrendt was the mastermind behind Berger advising Miranda, "He's just not that into you," on Sex & the City. And he co-wrote the book He's Just Not That Into You. And he's probably rolling in the dough from the ensemble hit He's Just Not That Into You. But there's much more to the funnyman.

Forgive the over-used phrase and the relationship advice, but Behrendt is actually funny with a mike in his hand. For one, his explanation of buying a second newspaper subscription because a vulnerable telemarketer used his first name is priceless. And his description of Criss Angel – "I don't get this guy at all. He fuckin' does magic but he's like kinda mad about it?" – is spot-on.

Catch Behrendt at the Improv. He'd totally be into you for doing so.
