Why Do So Many Big Comedians Refuse to Be Humorous on Twitter?

He’s one in all a number of humorous of us, from Greg Gutfeld to David Cross, who spend extra time on Twitter discussing the state of the world than their present in Pomona on Sunday night time. 

Not surprisingly, followers don’t admire this strategy both. Take this alternate from Apatow’s Sick within the Head between the director, Jim Carrey, and Ben Stiller:

Ben: I’ll tweet one thing about Haiti and there’ll be somebody who’ll tweet again, “Be humorous! Who cares about Haiti!” 

Jim: “Who cares about Haiti? Put your penis in your zipper and shut up.” 

Ben: “I’m unfollowing you, you’re not humorous. You simply care about Haiti.” 

Judd: I get that for retweeting your Haiti issues! “Cease retweeting Ben’s Haiti issues!” 

Jim: “Who do you suppose you’re, funnyman?” 

It makes one marvel why anybody bothers to tweet in any respect.  “It’s distraction,” admits Apatow. “There’s higher issues I needs to be doing with my time.” 

And for a comic’s profession, there are in all probability safer methods to spend their time as properly. 

“It’s loopy that a whole individual could be diminished to a couple cherry-picked tweets,” says comic Laurie Kilmartin. “I feel within the early days, comics handled Twitter like an open mic, however clearly it’s not. I fear that I’m gonna die after a lame or poorly worded tweet after which that can be my epitaph.”
