Laughing with You: The Top 10 Comedians with the Most Klout

Lithium Alumni (Retired)

It’s a day you either hate or love. Yes, we’re talking about April Fools’ Day on, as if you didn’t know, April 1st. Most of us will share a good laugh or two and watch out for pranks from colleagues and friends all day. Some of us will pull those all-in-the-name-of-fun pranks and perhaps laugh the hardest (ha ha, okay, sorry!). In the spirit of a light-hearted day of laughter, we thought we’d find out who ranks as the top 10 comedians with the most Klout on social.

 

There’s a rising generation of comedians who use social media to engage, connect and gather a following of devoted (and laughing) fans. We turned to Vulture.com’s recent post, The 50 Comedians You Should and Will Know, for the names of these rising stars, then pulled their Klout scores.  

 

Follow these talented comedians on Twitter and you’ll be sure to have a smile on your face on April Fools (and no, this is not a prank ;-)….

Fun post.    Thanks!

I have created leaderboards on rise.global which are ranked by Klout, or other social metrics.  

People seem to love them.  I don't have one up now but will share when I do.

People definitely love them
I was even asked about in a press interview last week


Respected Contributor

Oh wow, @KatyK thanks for mentioning that! 

I remember that you're on #TopSocial.  I'll be curating and republishing some more Leaderboards soon.
    
I noticed on your TW that you're Kellogg. Same here...Small world! 

 

What were you asked about regarding the #TopSocial Leaderboard?
