The razor-sharp humor of Gen X Council on TikTok is the epitome of Generation X’s take-no-prisoners attitude. This guy might not speak for the entire generation, but his humor is definitely typical of his peers—which is to say it’s vastly superior to every other generation that came before or after.
Though they might be the smallest and most often overlooked generation (no complex there), Gen X has turned what might have been disadvantageous for Millennials or Baby Boomers into their strongest asset. All the hardship has made Gen X even funnier than ever before, and no one’s funnier on TikTok than the user called Gen X Council.
Real name Forest Leonard, Gen X Council generally spends a lot of time discussing different Gen X cultural touchstones and hashing out the particulars that set them apart from others. His dry sense of humor has amassed tens of thousands of followers who can’t get enough of his witticisms. Here are a few of our personal favorite videos. Not only does he get Gen X exactly right, the videos are hilarious to boot!
