Follow Friday: Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn)

By

Everybody is a comedian on Twitter, but only a select few are worthy enough to have all of their witticisms transmitted to you, the ever busy comedy fan trying to navigate through an increasingly congested internet. Every Friday we’ll make your life a little bit easier by introducing you to an individual who consistently makes us laugh. You’re welcome.

(If you’re reading this from an RSS feed, jump on over to the website where you can actually view the tweets.)

Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) can be seen every week on the brombulievably brotastic TNT show Franklin & Bash, but don’t hold that against him. He’s also a funny comedian that co-hosts The Indoor Kids podcast and was a supporting cast member for the beloved and missed Michael and Michael Have Issues, in addition to being a staff writer for the series. Nanjiani also does terrific impressions.

He can also get into the mind of a cop.

He’s got a lucrative second career lined up just in case the comedian thing doesn’t work out.

And if that somehow doesn’t work out Kumali can always go back to television as a network executive.

Kumail makes assumptions about Andrew Garfield.

Nanjiani single-handedly discovered that Ice Cube’s idol was John Stockton.

And how Dick Wolf has really been financing his production company all this time.

He can see into a dystopian future where hipsters still exist.

The 90s haven’t called or even paged Kumali in awhile.

Kumail is human just like everybody else is.

Dishwalla are way over their heads.

Nanjiani is a Carrie.

It’s unknown what other parts of him are named.

Hugh Dancy is probably not a fan of Kumail.

Kumali might be partying too hard.

Nanjiani might be an excellent tweeter, but he doesn’t necessarily enjoy the social media platform.

Roger Cormier really needs to see Howard The Duck.
