Allie Brosh: Still Remembered, Cared About, and Loved



This entry is about Allie Brosh, click “read more” for the entire entry.)

Allie Brosh is a very well known person on the internet. She’s famous for her blog Hyperbole and a Half. If you’ve never heard or her or have never stumbled upon it, I greatly recommend that you do. She’s one of my favorite people on the internet, I rank her up there with Doug Walker, famously known for The Nostalgia Critic. Her entries are some of the most hilarious stuff I’ve ever read in my life, and that’s saying a lot. It’s hard for me to describe what it is about her writing in particular that makes her stand out compared to other people but you’ll understand if you check it out yourself. Her style of drawing, all of which are done on MS Paint, definitely is a part of what makes Hyperbole and a Half stand out. They do add on to the entertainment value of all her stories.
