Comedian and Twitter superstar Rob Delaney approached us to redesign his website. At the time he had a new book called: “Rob Delaney: Mother. Wife. Sister. Human. Warrior. Falcon. Yardstick. Turban. Cabbage.” that he was about to release. He wanted a website that would allow him to promote the book, keep fans updated on his appearances, and prominently display his ever-changing stream of tweets. According to Mashable, Rob is the first comedian to win the title of “Funniest Person on Twitter”. This notoriety has grown his Twitter following to over 1 million and, because of this, we made sure his tweets were a prominent feature on the website. If you are not following him yet, it’s time to: @robdelaney.
We created a sharp, clean, and sophisticated design to go along with the James Bond-type photos we were supplied with, and to ensure he reaches as large of an audience as possible, we built a custom WordPress theme for him that is entirely responsive, accessible, and light-weight. He was very excited about the website when we completed it and we were very excited to work with him on it. If you can’t tell from our client list, we are huge fans of comedy here and, in my opinion, Rob Delaney is not only the funniest person on Twitter, he is the funniest stand-up comic I have EVER seen perform. If you have not ever seen him live, you need to check out his tour dates and buy tickets when he is coming through your town. I promise you will not be disappointed.
You may have to wait for a little while though. Since launching the new website Rob has been in London working on a new show that is now in it’s second season. It is called Catastrophe and the first season is available to stream on Amazon Prime. If you want a sample of his humor, it definitely comes across in the show. Check it out and see him live if/when he comes back to the states!
