There's no denying that even a moment of comedic relief can turn a day around. But why settle for a moment when you could have a whole special? After making their worldly debuts on Instagram and other social media platforms, these budding comedians are the names we need to be looking out for in 2021.

First is the hilarious actress and comedian Chloe Fineman. She has become Instagram-famous for her amazing impressionist ability; some even featured Carol Baskin. She has already appeared alongside Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show! To see the stage action we can look forward to, check out her Insta, @chloeiscrazy.

Budding comedian Elsa Majimbo is only 19, but when it comes to making light of real talk, she hits the nail on the head every time! Last year, she made a series of hysterical videos that were high energy and revolved around hot topics. Thanks to her hot start in the industry and social media presence, 2021 could be her year!

You may have heard this name come in 4th on Britain's Got Talent last year: Nabil Abdulrashid. At 25-years-old, he became the youngest black stand-up comedian to perform at the Hammersmith Apollo in London. Since then, he's taken over many stages. And this year, he's embarking on his biggest tour yet!

Another hilarious impressionist is Jordan Firstman. He's a comic and a writer for many shows, including Search Party, The Other Two, and Big Mouth. His Instagram is chock-full of skits, jokes, and knee-slapper impressions. With many accomplishments already under his belt, he's expected to soar this year!

Last but not least is Janine Harouni. You may recognize her name from Comedy Central, NPR, BBC Three, or BBC Radio Four; but, if you're hearing it for the first time, [cough] you're welcome! This witty woman topped comedy charts with her debut show 'Stand Up with Janine Harouni (Please Remain Seated).'

She must be doing something right because The New York Times deemed Harouni "Ready for her Netflix Special," according to the comedian's website. While we await the arrival of her special, along with skits and sketches for the rest of these up-and-coming comics, does anyone have a knock-knock joke to share?
