Rob Delaney: Mother. Wife. Sister. Human. Warrior. Falcon. Yardstick. Turban. Cabbage.
Rob Delaney is a father, a husband, a comedian, a writer. He is the author of an endless stream of beautiful, insane jokes on Twitter. He is sober. He is sometimes brave. He speaks French. He has bungee-jumped off the Manhattan Bridge. He enjoys antagonizing political figures, powerful retailers and the Kardashians. He listens to metal while he works out. He broke into an abandoned mental hospital with his mother. He played Sir Lancelot in Camelot. He has battled depression. He is funny as s***. He cleans up well. He and Margaret Atwood have a thing going on Twitter. He is lucky to be alive.
In The Times magazine’s ‘the 50 people you should follow on Twitter’ Rob Delaney was at number 3, behind the pope and Harry Styles.
‘At least 99.9% of people who have a Twitter account try, now and then, to be funny. Nobody, however, has nailed the 140-character format as a vehicle for humour as completely as Delaney. The US comedian has amassed nearly one million followers by being consistently funny: at once puerile, political, snappy and surreal.’
