Many comedians thrive on Twitter, but sometimes it feels like they’re just using social media to workshop jokes for a standup routine. Rob Delaney is different. His humor is sharp and often calls out specific people (his tirades against Mitt Romney are particularly memorable), which makes it perfect for the medium. His hard work has paid off, too; besides being on every “funniest people on Twitter” list, he’s also recorded a stand-up special and gotten a deal with Comedy Central.
