There was once a time where Instagram was really just for posting pictures from your phone and using filters to make them look more professional. Now, Instagram is a full-on social media platform where you can share memes, videos, and other forms of making people laugh to your heart’s content. Because of that, there have been many accounts that have amassed huge followings for their comedic content. Some are already famous people while others are almost completely anonymous. Here are five of the funniest Instagrammers that you should be following today.
For those that have ever been without a job, you tend to have a lot of free time. What better way to spend that free time than posting on Instagram and hoping that you end up making enough people laugh to become famous. That’s what Claudia Oshry did, and she ended up becoming a sensation that has more than 3 million followers. Oshry has used her fame to go on tour and write books, as well.
4. John Cena
Most people know John Cena already, as he’s one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all-time, as well as an A-list actor in Hollywood known for his roles in “The Suicide Squad” and “Bumblebee”. What may come as a surprise to many is that he also runs a hilariously cryptic and vague Instagram account. Now with around 18 million followers, Cena will post almost daily with people trying to figure out meaning. “These images will be posted without explanation,” Cena explains in his bio. “For your interpretation. Enjoy.”
We’ve all seen those guys at the mall that are sitting on benches or next to dressing rooms waiting for their significant others. Thankfully, there’s an entire Instagram page dedicated to these men that look extremely out of place and waiting to get home as soon as possible. Miserable_Men on Instagram has featured countless men staring off into space, looking at their phones or magazines, or simply just dozing off in public. It’s an entire photo book dedicated to a male’s rite of passage.
When we get old, we tend to think that we’re still going to be cool and hip, but that’s just not in the cards for a lot of us. For Helen Elam, though, she’s the coolest grandma on the planet. Going under the pseudonym baddie Winkle, Elam has been at the forefront for elderly self expression and has developed a following of more than 3.3 million people. From dressing in bikinis to even hobnobbing with celebrities like Rihanna, Elam has done it all.
1. The Fat Jewish
Getting over 10 million followers on Instagram is no easy task unless you’re already a mainstream celebrity or athlete, but Josh Ostrovsky (aka The Fat Jewish) has done just that. A plus sized model from New York City, Ostrovsky started his account back in 2011 and a couple of years later went viral thanks to his hilarious videos. We’ve seen him branch out since then and he’s had cameo appearances in movies such as “Uncut Gems” and “Zoolander 2” while still posting frequently on Instagram where he first found stardom. Needless to say, he’s one of those “OG” Instagrammers that made it big.
