Comedian and actor Bret Ernst will have you know there are more famous self-described Jersey guidos than those found pumping their fists and tanning on reality shows (yes, we're talking "Jersey Shore"). Aside from a successful stand-up act, Ernst has had TV roles that include recurring characters on "Weeds" and "CSI: NY."
Why go: Ernst offers a guy's guy comedy (as seen on Oxygen's "Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too," Vince Vaughn's "Wild West Comedy Show" and Artie Lange's "Beer League"), but is great for the ladies who like a bad boy.
Reconsider: You like your Jersey guidos tanned, pumped up and inebriated.
