Follow the Funny – Video

16 Mar

Twitter’s 140 character limit demands a specific, concise form of comedy writing that is demonstrated in the one-liner, epigram and aphorism.

Comedians and comedy writers are skilled at this form. My video homage:

Steve Martin elevates Twitter to an art form with clever and playful humor that is often surreal, and also has fun with the “live time” nature of Twitter as an element in the humor.

Wendy Liebman tweets one-liners that are pure gold. Follow her if you want a quick laugh.

Stephen Colbert (and his writers) consistently cover pop culture and politics in an entertaining way.

Joan Rivers interacts well with fans, promotes tirelessly, drops amusing one-liners, conducts live commentaries on her WeTV show “Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows best” as it airs, and shares photos as she performs and makes media appearances.

Mo Rocca tweets witty and timely comments on news and people and his segments from the CBS Sunday Morning TV show.
