If you follow comedians like Ellen DeGeneres, Jim Gaffigan or Ricky Gervais on Twitter, then you clearly understand the value of laughter and that the social media site's usefulness expands beyond keeping track of the news. Lots of comedians use Twitter to throw quips and one-liners at their fans in order to keep them engaged between shows.

Humor is best, though, when it comes from where you'd least expect it, and Twitter has some rather unlikely funny voices. These six celebrities are keeping their day jobs, but using Twitter as a stand-up stage.

Eric Stonestreet

On Twitter, Stonestreet proves that he can write jokes just as well as he can act them out on "Modern Family." Check him out on Vine as well for the full Stonestreet experience, as he's fond of posting clips of himself.

What to expect: Sarcastic, often dry humor peppered with amusing answers to his followers' questions.

Kat Dennings

Dennings is good with the one-liners and big on the self-deprecation.

What to expect: Exclamatory outbursts and observational quips that are hilarious because they often lack any context.

Josh Groban

Groban is full of funny quips, but he doesn't have time for a standup comedy career, so he's settled for Twitter instead. We suggest you sing these tweets to yourself in Groban's silky, soothing voice.

What to expect: Original one liners and clever hashtags.

Anna Kendrick

Anna Kendrick poses a triple threat of singing, acting and tweeting. It seems like her "Pitch Perfect" co-star Rebel Wilson has rubbed off on her in a very funny way.

What to expect: Observational humor and amusingly-captioned photos.

Dylan Sprouse

Sprouse's nude photo scandal? Not so funny. His Twitter quips and occasional self-jabs? Very funny.

What to expect: Lots of links to his very funny Tumblr page and amusing interactions with fans.

Rider Strong

Strong pretty much only uses Twitter to interact with his fans, but not in a Q&A format. He seems to search for his name and respond to tweets about himself. The results are worth reading.

What to expect: Sarcasm with a smattering of more sarcasm.
