There seems to be an unspoken rule that Instagram is solely reserved for pristinely arranged, perfectly edited shots of the most gorgeous and exciting parts of your life. But rules are meant to be broken, right? These 10 female comedians use their Instagrams to impart their humor to the world, and they will flood your feed with the kind of laughter you've only known on Snapchat.
From text message exchanges to selfies in pilgrim garb, these women are unafraid to share their cheekiest, most unpolished, and genuinely hilarious selves.
Aparna Nancherla is a comedian and writer who has been gaining the growing attention and respect of the comedy world in recent years. In the past, she has humorously spoken about being a South Asian woman within the mostly white, male comedy community—something she uses to her advantage by sticking out, rather than blending in.
Anyone who can take the John Travolta confusion and transform it into something beautiful like this is awesome in our books. Chelsea Peretti's Instagram is full of cheeky text message exchanges and her amusing take on inspirational memes.
Amy Schumer is having a fantastic 2015 so far, with her film Trainwreck receiving endless and well-deserved acclaim at SXSW. We love her for her unbridled honesty that certainly comes through on her Instagram account. Plus, no one looks this fierce in colonial clothing.
You may recall Lauren Lapkus for her role on Orange is the New Black as prison guard Susan Fischer. Her unassuming character made her a welcome addition to the show, and now you can keep updated on her whereabouts on Instagram. Also, her selfie-stick game is on-point.
