Top 100 Comedians on Social Media

Posted by on Jul 24, 2015 in Blog, Featured | 0 comments

Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Vine, Periscope, Twitch, Soundcloud and more social media platforms come out by the day by which comedians can gain exposure.  For this article I focus on the two that seem to be used to the fullest by most celebrities, Twitter and Instagram.

Even some more well known comics choose not to be on twitter. Louis CK deleted his twitter account in November of 2014 citing his distaste for the way people interact via the social media platform. Here is a video clip of Louis talking about leaving twitter from Conan.


Dave Chapelle is another comic that does not use twitter. The last tweet from Chapelle’s verified account in March 2012 simply reads as seen below.  Here is a list of the top 100 ranked by total twitter and Instagram followers.

This is our 40TH COMEDY BOOZE CRUISE!
Get Tickets HERE>>
https://wardcomedy.com/comedyboozecruise40/
This time around the Comedy Booze Cruise is co-headlined by Drew Morgan and Victor Agreda Jr. Drew has been in NYC for over a year and is making his first performance back in Knoxville since the Scruffy City Comedy Festival last November. Victor Agreda Jr. might be leaving us for the beautiful west coast. He is the co-founder of the Comedy Booze Cruise and has been an integral part of the growth of the comedy scene in Knoxville since 2010.

Also appearing all the way from Los Angeles by way of Chattanooga, the unpredictable gutterbilly himself, DJ Lewis. Locals Trae Crowder, Waylon Whiskey and Danny Whitson round out the line-up.

Brace yourselves for a wild night of laughs and drinking. You may just end up with a Black Liver.

The Comedy Booze Cruise began in October of 2012. It is a late night two-hour riverboat cruise with a stand-up comedy show. Food is not served on board but two bars typically run during the cruise.

The Showroom is indoors on the bottom floor of the Star of Knoxville, a two-story riverboat.
