Follow Friday: @ImLaurenMcGuire (Lauren McGuire)


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.)

Lauren McGuire (@ImLaurenMcGuire), is a sketch writer at the UCB and for John Moe’s Wits show. She was kind enough to take some time out of her day to give us some background info on some of her funniest tweets.

Even if you can’t procure a horse, you can always dance like one.

The key to good dancing is to pretend you’re a horse
