Here Are Four Comedians On The Brink Of Fame & Some Of Their Funniest Tweets!
Do you like to laugh? Of course, you do. What are you a monster?
2015 is already (checks watch, realizes I don’t have one and that there isn’t even a calendar on said watch anyway, checks iPhone, iPhone’s dead because I didn’t charge it last night, checks calendar on Google) a third of the way done, so why not discuss where the world of comedy and its future are currently heading with some up-and-coming standups, and performers.
If you haven’t seen or heard of these four comedians yet, you definitely will, because they’re all incredibly talented, industrious, and on the rise to greatness.
World, meet Aparna Nancherla, Ben Siemon, Matt Ingebretson, and Emmy Blotnick.
Along with each comedian, I’ve taken the liberty of providing some recent tweets to show how consistently hilarious these performers are. So yeah, I took that liberty. That liberty of yours is gone.
Aparna Nancherla is the master of the perfectly crafted one-liner whose punchline always brilliantly defies expectation.
Forget predictive text, what about predictive end of this relationship

Every time i love a new song, i play it over and over again until i feel nothing for it anymore. Metaphor get about it.

Does anyone know a good accountant at coachella

When you walk into a loud bar, the bouncer should check for ID but also if you’d rather just have pizza & call it a night

Everything in moderation. Especially this expression. Sick of hearing it.

Guys will never have news to drop with the impact of “I’m pregnant.” The closest thing for them is “I have a kidney stone & it’s yours.”

Ben Siemon! Ben’s Facebook posts and tweets are pretty much the funniest part of anyone’s feed. A writer for Tiny, Tiny Talk Show, a gifted puppeteer, and (ask anyone in the UCB community) a gifted improv performer, coach, and brilliant sketch comedian, Ben is someone to expect big, hilarious things from in the nearest of futures.

Feel like something scary. Should I watch “The Babadook” on Netflix, or think about where my life is at 35 years old?

I haven’t made a Coachella joke yet, so I lost my LA license. Let my mistake be a cautionary tale for you!

Matt Ingebretson’s Twitter posts are darkly hysterical. His standup is hilarious, and his Idiot Fencing should not be missed. He’s also a writer for The Soup‘s web content.
WELL WELL WELL, if it isn’t the family whose house I’ve broken into

I made this and hung it on the wall at my local Target. I’m honored to receive this award from such a great company. pic.twitter.com/PCpPDvASha

I had a threesome but it was the bad kind where one person died
Matt Ingebretson (@mattingebretson) April 1, 2015
The last thing he texted before he died was “Hope I don’t crash my car because I’m texting.” Moments later he was shot in heart with a rifle

I guess at the end of the day what scares me most is… success. Or wait, no. Rats. What scares me most is rats eating my toes while I sleep

I like to show up fashionably never to most parties

If you’re not following Emmy Blotnick on Twitter, what are you really doing with your life? This @midnight writer is definitely someone who is not only worthy of staying on top of their tweets, but also someone to watch perform live; she was named a Comic to Watch by Comedy Central.
Just as there’s a turn signal, there should be a way to let other drivers know there’s a big spider in your car

Hot tip: Floss right before your date shows up so you greet him with a mouth full of blood

Accidentally typed that I’m “lacrosse intolerant,” then realized, I am also that.

Buying household items on Amazon makes your recommendations so boring. “If you liked 12 rolls of Charmin, you’ll LOVE 24 rolls of Charmin.”
