My 5 Funniest People on Twitter

by on May 31, 2012

A couple of weeks ago, I posted My 5 Favorite Tumblr Blogs, so I thought it was only natural to list my Top 5 Twitter folks. Since I am known for being in the funny category, those are the people’s feeds I like to read. Don’t ask me who has the best tech or sports profiles, but I can certainly tell you who is the best when it comes to being funny. A few names you may know, but most you won’t. I keep it indie like that.

1. Damien Fahey

You might remember him from back in the day as the host of MTV’s Total Request Live. Who knew there was a comedic genius hiding underneath his gentle, post-adolescent charm? He also writes for Some eCards and his tweets are consistently funny.

2. Louis Peitzman

Louis is more up on pop culture than you will ever be. His tweets are either perfectly timed, or endearingly nebbish. I imagine his dream parents would be Andy Cohen and Rue McClanahan.

3. Caprice Crane

Caprice is one of the more well-known funny Twitter ladies, but to me she has the best female Twitter feed because she only uses her razor sharp wit; She never relies on cursing or blatant sexuality to get a laugh. Her brain wins over any kind of comedy crutch.

4. Rob Fee

Rob tweets what you didn’t know you were already thinking. He’s a stand up comic and new father who always has a fresh, if not ridiculous, perspective.

5. Braden Graeber

Braden is the mind behind the hilarious Hipster Mermaid meme. However, his comedic talents extend beyond ironic mermaids. Braden’s tweets are delightfully neurotic and he never seems to run out of great material.

If you aren’t following all of the above people, you should do so right now. And if that’s not enough new feeds, you can always follow me on Twitter too.

I’d also love to hear who your favorite funny people on Twitter are!
