Gina Rodriguez, Aziz Ansari, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Melissa McCarthy Are on Time’s 2016 100 Most Influential People List
Those are the comedy folks that are listed next to Pope Francis, Stephen Curry, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Hillary Clinton.
Time Magazine just released its annual big-to-do list of the 100 Most Influential People this year and the likes of Jane The Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez, comedy multi-hyphenate Aziz Ansari, enduring comedy star of Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and bonafide, self-made comedy force Melissa McCarthy all made the list.
John Oliver (”the John Oliver effect” is a real thing) and Samantha Bee (Full Frontal, like Last Week Tonight, picked up right where Jon Stewart left off and added more bite over bark) seem to be absent from the list, but don’t let that take away from how great Master of None, Spy, Veep, and Jane The Virgin are.
