What was once a skill to be showcased on stage has now made its presence on the micro-blogging site, Twitter. From being ‘funny on stage’ to being ‘funny on Twitter’, we have come a long distance. But mind it, for those who think it’s easy, it is actually not! It is far more difficult than you and I can even think.
The comedians of Twitter produce hilarious and off the wall jokes which make your gloomy Twitter timeline an extremely sparkling one. These comedians bring to you incredible gags in just 140 characters.

An influential Twitter comedian, he has international credits attached to him. Owing to his studies abroad, he has a western touch in his work and you can almost fall for his non-Indian looks. Star Struck, his Twitter profile showcases pictures with celebrities, funny tweets (of course), trophies, events et all.

A child stuck in a man’s body, he cracks you up on Twitter. His description stands out with the way he has used words. He retweets a lot of other comedian jokes. Every comedian can pull another’s leg but only a real comedian can also do that for onself!
The biggest side effect to every haircut is regret.

Looks like Utsav is a huge fan of ‘Chetan Bhagat’ … Oops I mean ‘Satan Bhagat’! He has used his background image on Twitter to take a dig at the author. He is known to be the most vociferous critic of Chetan Bhagat. With over 25K followers, he takes a dig at other personalities as well.
To this day, Kajol can only kiss Ajay Devgn because she has convinced herself that its ‘good bacteria’.

I think he’s one of the most active comedians there. Even his sandwiches can create a conversation! He has been a part of the Red Bull Tour Launch owing to his antique gigs and a influential Twitter account. He has over 51K followers which is massive for a comedian in India.

Over 46K followers, he is very well know in the comedians circuit and otherwise too. If you have had your share of laugh at the Filmfare awards, this is the guy behind the humorous scripts. He has been a part of many popular acts like Weirdass Company, All India Bakchod and has also been labeled as Comedy King.
I guess they called it Bullet Raja because Sasta Dhoom wasn’t as appealing.

The founder of All India Bakchod, he portrays a great sense of humour on his Twitter profile! Gursiman Khamba was born to a Sikh family and was among the few students who met A.P.J Kalam for an interview about reservations in 2007. He is a performer at the famous Comedy Store too.
He is a must follow. Extremely popular actor and a comedian, he has the highest number of Twitter followers with over a lakh of them. He has the power to make you laugh on anything and everything. You will definitely enjoy his tweets. His recent fame has risen from the movie Go Goa Gone.
Sometimes I think Arnab Goswami is just a guy playing Arnab Goswami. He goes home and chills, knits sweaters, listens to enya, pets kittens.
