Although many social media influencers are finding new ways to bring us the LOL’s we require without even leaving our phones. Instead of using their good looks to please our eyes, they are using their comedy and talent to make us cry from laughter and joy. Here are some of the funniest, weirdest but oddly enjoyable social media comedians to cleanse us with their outrageous humour.

Make your home the cosiest cinema out, and don’t forget the popcorn!

Who here is single and ready to mingle? Well in the year 2020 dating and picking-up has changed for the worse.
