Twitter trends can be entertaining but by the time you’ve scrolled through a couple of hundred tweets, the nausea begins to kick in – that’s where funny people come in.
Humour is a unique reflection of the times we live in, and it’s good to be clued-in. If comedy clubs make you uncomfortable, you can get the same kicks sitting in your couch, on some layer of the Twittersphere.
When Twitter isn’t ‘broken’ by Kim Kardashian’s butt, it serves as a great place for comedians and screenwriters to test their material.
Imagine if being funny was your job; the pressure would cripple many of us. So spare a thought for people who make a living trying to make us laugh.
For your pleasure, we’ve curated 10 recent new jokes, tweeted by comedians in response to events around the world.
