Praise the telly lord.

Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney’s comedy is consistently one of the best things on TV:

And his legendary Twitter account is an absolute joy

He’s often fighting the good fight

And regularly producing stellar observations

He was one of the first comedians to embrace Twitter when he joined in 2009 – and it was that enthusiasm that’s won him over 1.3 million followers.

They come for the sarcastic comedy gold

And stay for the Catastrophe insights

He often uses his Twitter account to share personal stories on serious issues

In one of his most retweeeted posts this year, he talked about being sober for 15 years:

If drinking or drugs is a problem for you, I offer my own story as proof that a low down drunk can stop drinking and stay stopped. It’s not easy, but it is simple. Admitting you’ve got a problem is a good place to start.

He definitely follows Gerry Adams, and isn’t afraid to compare him to other politicians

Cutting one-liners are his staple

Taking the piss at the same time

Unofficially the greatest Twitter account of them all
