Rob Delaney Talks Twitter Comedy, Life Advice, and Scoop on Neighbor Karen
Fresh from the previous day’s blockbuster Reddit AMA, comedian Rob Delaney gets grilled on the debut edition of What’s Trending’s “Troll Food” segment, bravely answering Twitter and Reddit questions he initially avoided.
While Rob’s initial reaction to Twitter in 2008 was “that sounds stupid!” he’s quickly become one of the social network’s funniest tweeters. Having been able to sell tickets for his live shows via Twitter, he figured he’d follow Louis C.K.’s trend of releasing his new special, “Live at the Bowery Ballroom,” exclusively online for just $5.
When asked how to get out of jury duty, Rob replies, “Get arrested.” He did four years ago. And now he’s all set. “So, be a man, and then also commit crimes.” Ya hear?
Rob even answers the age-old, burning question about the identity of his infamous neighbor and subject of his comedy, Karen. Initially hesitant, he finally admits, “Yes…my neighbor Karen is real and I harass her that aggressively all the time and she’s very upset. No, you can’t see pics of her.” Hopefully, he’s not just making something up to keep us at bay…
Rob’s best tweetback? That would be from Jack Welch, former CEO of GE. “He went from old man to sharp verbal assassin…That’s management skills right there.”
