Hey Bros!

Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die.  Today’s contestant is comedian, Kumail Nanjiani.  I just caught him on Comedy Central’s @Midnight, where he won the Internet.  Let’s see if his tweets are just as funny.


January 6th:  “Dunno how we all collectively slept on Prisoners but goddamm it’s a great thriller. Reminds me of Silence of the Lambs, a high compliment.”

I still don’t know why Wolervine didn’t just kill that guy.

January 6th:  “Taping TODAY w . Bet free tix here:

You were crushin’ it on that show.  And that’s not easy considering you were up against Paul Scheer.

January 6th:  “The fact that one of Dick Cheney’s daughters is gay almost makes me believe in a higher power.”

And, thankfully, one of them dropped out of the Senate race in Wyoming.

January 6th:  “”Oh these people I kinda know just started following this person I don’t know. Thanks for telling me Twitter! ” – nobody”

Hey, without it, how would I find people for this column?

22 hours ago:  “See me tonight on w & ! It was awesome.

That show was worth a second plug.  I’ll allow it.

21 hours ago:  “Problem? I’m anti-blem!

Even after Googling, still not sure what that means.

5 hours ago:  “Deng is leaving the Bulls. They probably shouldn’t have tried to literally kill him last season.”

If murder isn’t part of professional sports, then what’s the point?

5 hours ago:  “When someone gives me a box of cookies, they’re basically gifting me a horrendous internal struggle for a week.”

I know!  Do I eat one sleeve at a time or both together?

4 hours ago:  “If I had a time machine I would go back in time and invent the time machine.”

Great, then it will be in the hands of some dinosaur eventually.  T-Rex’s are scary enough.

4 hours ago:  “Million dollar idea: tattoos for dogs.”

“Sir, I’m going to need for you to hold your pitbull steady.”

2 hours ago:  “”Oh shit I never watched Downton Abbey.” – me on my deathbed”

I’ll say the same thing about American Idol.

Okay, let’s rate Kumail’s tweets.  Pretty solid, funny, plugs.  Definitely one to watch.  I give him an 8 for Mustness, a 9 for Style and an 8 for Insanity.  Overall score 8.3.  Follow Kumail.
