The funniest man on Twitter

Comedian Rob Delaney with host Kai Ryssdal at Marketplace headquarters in Los Angeles. 

Stand-up comedy is a notoriously hard slog. It's all about getting up in front of as many people as you can, as often as you can, almost wherever you can. But there is a comedian out there who, after years of in-person stand up, has gotten almost a million fans from the comfort of his own living room.
