If you’ve had your fill of Donald Trump parody Twitter accounts like the very presidential @MatureTrumpTwts and film buff @ArtHouseTrump and are looking for something new, look no further, because this week a brand new Trump parody account appeared, and it’s devoted to calling out obscure comedy injustices that only true comedy nerds will care about.
Created by Brendan McLaughlin (Best Week Ever, Nikki & Sara Live) and Matt Koff (The Daily Show), @TrumpComedyNerd popped up this week to provide a version of Trump that, despite being Trump-related, is well worth the Twitter follow if you feel as passionately about, say, the premature cancellation of Get a Life or Brian Doyle-Murray being underrated as @TrumpComedyNerd clearly does. And don’t you dare try to correct or question @TrumpComedyNerd’s’s unparalleled comedy nerd knowledge, because if you do, you’re going to get called out on it. The arrival of @TrumpComedyNerd is also perfect timing, considering the real Trump called Stephen Colbert “filthy” and a “no-talent guy” in a new interview with Time posted today – though it’s far from the first time Trump has taken to Twitter or interviews in comedy critic mode.
Here’s a sampling of some of @TrumpComedyNerd’s best tweets so far:
Lightweight Kids In the Hall were unable to make a successful transition from TV to movies. Brain Candy- totally unwatchable!— ComedyNerdTrump (@TrumpComedyNerd) May 8, 2017
Goofy Brian Posehn was hands-down the worst supporting player in the original Mr. Show cast. Not a trained actor. Embarrassing! — ComedyNerdTrump (@TrumpComedyNerd) May 9, 2017
It’s Garry Shandling’s Show started a conversation about genre that did not go fully explored until The Larry Sanders Show. Unbelievable!— ComedyNerdTrump (@TrumpComedyNerd) May 9, 2017
UHF was a total disaster. Long form narrative was not the right medium for Weird Al Yankovic’s voice! — ComedyNerdTrump (@TrumpComedyNerd) May 9, 2017
Failing media reviews of Cabin Boy were horribly unfair. The film is meant to be taken with a grain of salt. Not nice!— ComedyNerdTrump (@TrumpComedyNerd) May 9, 2017
Sloppy Carol Burnett hailed as pioneer of sketch comedy, but bits often plateau rather than heighten. Would never have let this happen! — ComedyNerdTrump (@TrumpComedyNerd) May 10, 2017
Cryin’ fans play sad about cancellation of The Dana Carvey Show. Where were they when it needed viewers to help its horrible ratings?!— ComedyNerdTrump (@TrumpComedyNerd) May 10, 2017
Robert Smigel gets all the credit for TV Funhouse but very lot of people forget it was a collaboration with Dino Stamatopoulos. Not nice! — ComedyNerdTrump (@TrumpComedyNerd) May 10, 2017
Fake music channel MTV did not know what it had with Daria. BAD JUDGEMENT! — Donald J. Trump (@TrumpComedyNerd) May 10, 2017
Just saw a Level 301 class show at UCB Chelsea. No listening, zero callbacks. Painful to watch! — ComedyNerdTrump (@TrumpComedyNerd) May 10, 2017
Colbert most famous for conservative character, yet no one reports on his early collaborations with Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello. SHAME! — ComedyNerdTrump (@TrumpComedyNerd) May 11, 2017
