While most people probably know Jon Hamm from “Mad Men,” (which this writer believes is currently the best show on TV), many know he’s also been quietly building a career in comedy. In addition to three excellent stints hosting “Saturday Night Live,” he’s also had a recurring role on “30 Rock” and has a supporting role in the upcoming comedy “Bridesmaids,” which our team just saw at SXSW and called “hilarious and heartfelt." Fans might also know he’s known to occasionally make low-key appearances at the UCB Theatre as well as on various comedy podcasts. Basically, he’s the real deal.

Fingers crossed, it's looking like the summer of 2011 will be incredibly strong for comedy. Not only have we got the return of the biggest grossing R-rated comedy of all time with "The Hangover 2," but there's also Cameron Diaz and Jason Segal in Jake Kasdan's "Bad Teacher"; Will Gluck's follow-up to the excellent "Easy A," "Friends With Benefits"; Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in "Crazy Stupid Love"; Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman swapping bodies in "The Change-Up"; David Gordon Green and Jonah Hill teaming on "The Sitter" and Ruben Fleischer's "30 Minutes or Less," with Jesse Eisenberg, Aziz Ansari and Danny McBride.
