Everyone likes to laugh. Ergo, the people who make us laugh are our favorites. In this week's edition of Bold Face we feature three famous folks who really know how to bring the funny...

Mel Brooks is a comedy legend. Author and director of some of Hollywood's seminal satires and parodies, like Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein, Brooks is also an actor, composer, lyricist and producer. He is one of the few people to win an EGOT, an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and a Tony award. Most recently he has come from behind the camera to star in a sold-out, one man show about his life and career, sharing personal memories and stories with an intimate 500 person crowd. He can now do that in his new G-Star Raw GS2605 glasses from Marchon...


Chris Rock is another jack of all trades. A comedian, actor, screenwriter, television producer, film producer and director, Rock got his start in the early 90s on Saturday Night Live. He is currently filming two different comedies; Finally Famous, about a comedian who is trying to make it as a serious actor when his reality-TV star fiancé talks him into broadcasting their wedding on her show, and a reprisal of his role as Marty, the zebra, in the animated The Penguins of Madagascar. Clearly Rock is one of the funniest men on the planet, but his sense of style is no joke. Here he wears the Vogue 3846 sunglasses from Luxottica


Last up is another multi-talented person, actress, singer and comedian, Jane Lynch. Lynch got her mainstream start in Christopher Guest's improv mockumentary picture Best in Show. Since then, she has been a staple part of Guest's casts, appearing in the director's A Mighty Wind (2003) as porn actress-turned-folk singer Laurie Bohner and in For Your Consideration (2006) as an entertainment reporter. Of course, now most audiences know her as Sue Sylvester in Glee, a role that has won her several notable awards. She also hosts the NBC game show Hollywood Game Night where two teams made up of members of the public and celebrities compete in various party games. Jane Lynch wears the Bebe BB7092 "Go Girl" sunglasses from Altair.
