If you were to ask me who the biggest breakout comedian of 2009 was, without a moment of hesitation, I would say the bad guy in Lethal Weapon 2. Unfortunately, it turns out the bad guy in Lethal Weapon is fictional, dead and not a comedian, proving yet again that I'm about as good at naming breakout comedians as I am at ending sentences with the proper punctuation? Luckily, there's Comedy Central's Hot List, featuring the year's best up-and-coming comics. Here's the complete list along with some exclusive videos of the comedians.
