Follow Friday: @MarkMarkLittle (Mark Little)


A lot of Twitter users take to the platform to test out their latest jokes and quips, but certain people truly excel at making us laugh with the available characters and constraints. With the Internet being such a big place, it can be difficult to find the comedians most worthy of your RTs and favs. Each Friday we feature one person whose consistent short-form online humor deserves your attention and to be on your Twitter feed.

(If you’re reading this from an RSS feed, you might want to come on over to the website so you can see the tweets.)

This week, we’re recommending the Twitter feed of Canadian comedian Mark Little (@MarkMarkLittle). Little is a member of the sketch group Picnicface who made a bunch of hit videos and the cult movie Roller Town together. He also co-created and starred in the web series Dad Drives and is a busy standup who was named one of Variety’s 10 Comics to Watch this year. In addition to all that stuff, he’s also good at writing jokes on Twitter. Here’s a collection of his funniest tweets:
