10 Essential Comedians To Follow On Twitter
Top 10 Comedians Worth Following On Twitter
I don't know about you guys, but my absolute favorite thing to do on twitter is to follow comedians.
The problem is that while there are hundreds of successful comedians out there in twitterverse, most of them only use it as a promotional tool for their upcoming gigs and appearences, while others simply aren't good at tweeting despite being terrific comedians.
Below is a list of the Top 10 Comedians Worth Following On Twitter, with a majority being stand up comedians but also a few writers, actors and producers.
I've included snapshots of some of my favorite tweets from each comedian, along with their recent tweets, videos and their best known work.
Keep in mind that some of the comedians mentioned here are considered dirty, while this is actually a bonus for me, I'm aware that others might not feel the same way.
