Follow Friday: @KarlHess


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.

This week, we’re recommending the Twitter feed of LA-based standup Karl Hess. Hess is featured on last year’s album Holy Fuck from Rooftop Comedy and was voted one of their best underground comics in 2011. He has appeared on truTV, Fuse and G4 and performed at many festivals, including SXSW and Montreal’s Just for Laughs. He’s also in Brooks Wheelan’s viral “year in the life” videoon mushrooms. Check out some of his funniest tweets below:
