Follow Friday: @MikeScollins


Everybody fancies themselves as some sort of wizard that can conjure up laughter by a few strokes of a keyboard, but only a few tweeters are truly 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 that you might not know about who consistently makes us laugh and momentarily forget that other days of the week exist.

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

Mike Scollins (@mikescollins) writes for the Yahoo show Losing It with John Stamos and the UCB sketch team Onassis. Mike is also a kind gentleman who elaborated on a few of his funniest tweets.
