You know a comedian is talented when he manages to crack you up in under 140 characters. Dara O Briain isn’t active on Facebook or Instagram, but on Twitter … he simply outdoes himself.
Here are the times Dara O Briain just owned Twitter with his quick jokes.
When he tries to justify technology
As my children grow older it is increasingly important to me to own a pair of Apple AirPods – to have something tiny and enormously valuable that I panic about, thinking they’ve gone missing every five minutes.

but ends up making us laugh at it instead.
He just manages to turn every situation into a funny one …

We’ll never be able to look at the word billions without giggling again.
He can even make us laugh about a thriller movie!
I wasn’t mad about “BirdBox” but I though it was genuinely frightening that moment when you saw your own face on the iPad screen and it was really old and bald and unattractive and your worst fear. It’s only a movie though, phew!

It has to be someone like Dara O Briain to make us laugh at a movie that leaves you as breathless as BirdBox does. Plus, you have to admit, sometimes the funniest joke a comedian can throw at you is one where he’s making fun of himself.
Giving some amazing career advice to his younger audience
Hey Good luck to everyone doing Physics in the Leaving Tomorrow! It's the doorway to a career in comedy!

In case you didn’t know, Dara O Briain graduated in Maths and Physics and has written some science books for kids, but chose the path of a comedian when it came down to it.
We wouldn’t have it any other way.
His comments on being an Irish person in London cracked us up
I can't stay angry. Not when London is full of billboards saying "4GEE!", and sniggering irish people. #geeisourwordformuff

You have to admit though … his observation skills are on point.
This guy can give an accurate running commentary on literally anything …

Attenborough: Now watch it die, tragically, and unloved!#planetearth2
