Laura Benanti Who: Tony Award-winning actress, TV star, master comedienne.

Where To Follow: Twitter (@laurabenanti) and Instagram (@laurabenanti)

What Do You Get? Laura's daily musings and observations filter through her very funny comic sensibilities, on any and every topic from fanny packs to "Nashville." She's so funny that Patty & Emily's podcast "Listen" features a weekly segment called "Laura Benanti Tweet of the Week." Plus, we love the tweets about her mom, who she so casually refers to as #Linda.
