Recently, comedians Stephen Colbert and Nick Kroll launched a social media hashtag campaign to help raise money for Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. The hashtag is #PuberMe, and the comedians promised to donate money if their fellow celebrities would share, as Colbert and Kroll did, photographs of themselves from when they were awkward, geeky preteens.
Why, it's Conan O'Brien. He's hosted "Late Night," "The Tonight Show" and his current, self-titled talk show. He was pretty awkward at his job at first, but after nearly 25 years, he's gotten the hang of it.
Hey, that's Judd Apatow! He directed The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up, and produced Freaks and Geeks, Anchorman, Superbad, Bridesmaids and pretty much every other comedy you've liked for the past 20 years.
You're damn straight it's comedian, Twitter kween and American hero Sarah Silverman. When a certain POTUS tweeted about "FAKE NEWS" instead of drumming up support for Puerto Rico relief, she called him an "orange tw*t," and that letter we censored is not an I.
That young nerd grew up to be King of the Nerds "Weird Al" Yankovic. The legendary musical parodist didn't write much about his opinions, because he tends to keep his politics to himself. But he also knows supporting Puerto Rico relief isn't a political issue; it's a human one.
Yep, it sure is voice-of-her-generation Lena Dunham. She may not be pubescent anymore, but she's still pretty awkward. You can see that play out on her show, Girls, if for some reason you haven't already.
