Follow Friday: @HamptonYount


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 highlighting the Twitter feed  of Hampton Yount. Last year, the LA standup appeared on Adam DeVine’s House Party and was featured on Rooftop Comedy’s album Holy Fuck. In addition to standup, he has written for MTV’s Ridiculousness and Adult Swim’s Loiter Squad. Yount was also named one of Comedy Central’s top 10 comics to watch in 2012.
