Jeopardy! champ Ken Jennings is a trivia master. However, those who follow his social media accounts know that he is more than that. He has one heck of a sense of humor. It seems like he posts something hilarious every day on his Twitter. Jennings is pretty much the walking definition of infotainment at this point. He informs the masses while also keeping a smile on the faces of his fans.
For instance, on Friday Ken Jennings tweeted about classic Looney Tunes shorts that are available on HBO Max. It’s an informative post. At the same time, he wrapped the information in a joke.
In the tweet, Ken Jennings gives his followers a look at the kind of conversations he would have in a crowded club. At the same time, he makes us all almost miss the experience of yelling over loud music to make conversation. However, he does drop some interesting information for those of us who are old enough to remember the good old days of Saturday morning Looney Tunes.
Ken Jennings Delivers the Hard-Hitting News
Besides being funny, Ken Jennings’ tweet has some exciting news. 165 original Looney Tunes shorts that have never been available for home video consumers are now available to stream on HBO Max. At the same time, some shorts have been remastered. If you’re looking for a classic cartoon fix but also looking to see something new, now you know where to go.
This isn’t the first time Ken Jennings has dropped a fact bomb on Twitter. It probably won’t be the last, either. In the last few weeks alone, Jennings has reported on a wide variety of topics. He talked about the anniversary of a R.E.M album, the birthday of a legendary cartoonist, and much more. Each one of these nuggets of news is served with a side of Jennings’s trademark snark
Ken Jennings needs to take a break from doing quiz shows and really branch out. He could do a one-man stage show. It could be the most informative standup comedy special in the history of comedy. Think about it, he has a great sense of humor and a wealth of trivia knowledge. At the same time, he has lived a pretty interesting life. So, he probably has some good stories to tell. If you combine all of those things, you have a recipe for a great show. The audience would get some good laughs and come away feeling smarter.
Until that happens, we’ll have to stick to following Ken on Twitter.
