Before Nikki and Sara were the best thing that ever happened to MTV, they were a couple of strangers who decided it would be fun to do a podcast together. If you go back and listen to early episodes of You Had To Be There you can actually hear them become friends. While they don’t do the podcast anymore and Nikki And Sara Live was deemed too beautiful for this world, these two will always make us laugh.

2. Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson


If you watch Broad City – and of course you do – you know that Abbi and Ilana’s friendship is everything. Absolutely everything. Through poop and pussy weed, they’re there for each other. They’ve always got each other’s backs. The only thing stronger than their love for each other is our love for them. If you can’t wait for season two, go back and watch the web series that started it all.

These two became friends while taking Improv classes at UCB in New York. They’ve parlayed their friendship into two excellent shows: the brilliant-but-short-lived Best Friends Forever and USA’s Playing House. They’re creative soulmates and we hope they stay best forever and ever.

4. Nicole Byer and Sasheer Zamata

Way back before she had her talk show, sitcoms or development deals, Whitney was the just the best panelist on Chelsea Lately. Remember that? It was awhile ago.

Here’s a vodka toast to many, many more years of love and laughter.

10. Amy Schumer and Jessi Klein


Inside Amy Schumer is one of the best sketch shows on television and it wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for Amy’s friend and fellow comedian Jessi Klein. Comedy Central had originally wanted Amy to host a talk show a la Chelsea Lately, it wasn’t until Jessi told Amy took make the show of her dreams that Amy decided to make a sketch show instead. Now Jessi is the show's head writer and we all get the last laugh.
