It's only half a decade since the Judd Apatow stable reinvigorated the comedy world, plucking actors from TV shows like "Freaks & Geeks," "The Daily Show" and the old staple of "Saturday Night Live" and turning them into bona fide superstars, but already the next wave of comic actors are starting to break through. Names like Aziz Ansari, Aubrey Plaza, Donald Glover, Ellie Kemper, Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer, many of whom, crucially, broke through with short films on the internet, are all starting to make waves on the big screen, and it's only a matter of time before one of them cracks the A-list.
