Follow Friday: @weismanjake

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.)

For this week’s column, we’re looking at the super funny Twitter feed of comedian Jake Weisman. He’s an LA-based standup who ranked high on a Splitsider survey earlier this year, in which we asked the bookers and hosts of LA’s top live shows to pick their favorite comedians. In addition to being an in-demand standup, you may know Weisman from his sketch group WOMEN, his now-defunct podcast (with Eli Olsberg) The Morning After, or from a standup performance last year in which he found a bag of cocaine on an unruly heckler, resulting in a video of the set going viral (YouTube yanked the video down for no reason, but it’s resurfaced on this weird video site).

In addition to all that stuff, Jake Weisman is also really good at Twitter. Check out a collection of his funniest work on the social networking site below:
