Follow Friday: @ThatRamosGirl (Vanessa Ramos)


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.

Vanessa Ramos (@thatramosgirl) has just signed on to write for the Comedy Central roast for the second year in a row, this time around setting her sights on wiping the smug smile off of James Franco’s face - through comedy.

My three favorite shows about murderers are Dexter, Hannibal, and SportsCenter.— Vanessa Ramos (@thatRamosgirl) June 30, 2013

My favorite episode of Dirty Jobs is the one about the guy who feeds peanut butter to the Kardashians so it looks like they’re talking.— Vanessa Ramos (@thatRamosgirl) November 15, 2011

Anywho, the Kardashian thing came from watching Keeping Up with The Kardashians with the sound off for five minutes and it reminding me of when my brother and I would give our cocker spaniel a spoonful of peanut butter while my mom’s Gloria Estefan CD played. That reference was pretty inside so I went with Dirty Jobs.”
