Rob Delaney, christened the “Funniest Person On Twitter” at the 2012 Comedy Awards, has mastered the art of the comedy tweet. If you doubt that comedy tweeting is an art form, you haven’t seen Rob Delaney’s twitter. Here’s a small taste:
- “TGIF” – everyone except Jesus [permalink]
- Be careful; you are a can of soda. RT @Pepsi: Biking along the beach to catch the sunset. Doin’ summer nights right! [permalink]
- The story of the Titanic speaks to me because I once tripped over a bag of ice at a party & then killed over 1,500 people. [permalink]
When he isn’t tweeting (which isn’t very often), Delaney is doing other things that funny people do. His stand-up special, Rob Delaney, Live at the Bowery Ballroom, is currently streaming on Netflix. He also has a book coming out in November: Rob Delaney: Mother. Wife. Sister. Human. Warriar. Falcon. Yardstick. Turban. Cabbage. He’s penned a few indescribable articles for Vice.com, and has a tumblr where he’s written frankly and beautifully about his struggles with addiction and depression.
