Boston is, among many other things, a comedy town. In fact, when you meet a comedian in any other city, there's a good chance you'll find out they're originally from Boston. And those who aren't from there often count it among their favorite cities to perform. For whatever reason, Boston and comedy have gone hand-in-hand for decades.
So it's no surprise that when news spread of the bombing at the Boston Marathon on Monday, comedians took to twitter to try to make sense of it, express their horror and sadness and, most importantly of all, to share their love for the city so many have found their voice in.
Take a look at just a few of those messages below.
