TIKTOK HAS COMEDY CONTENT Y ‘ALL!
The reason you may not have discovered these accounts on your own is because TikTok serves as a platform for A LOT of interests (dance tutorials, cooking recipes, dismantling misinformation, etc) so it can be really time-consuming to wade through all that content to find the comedy accounts you ‘re actually interested in watching.
BUT HAVE NO FEAR – I AM HERE TO HELP!
Hi, I ‘m Kat – I have 1.5M followers on TikTok and spend more time scrolling TikTok than I do engaging in face-to-face human interactions (I ‘d blame quarantine, but I was like this prior to the pandemic). If you like Funny Or Die, I think you ‘ll LOVE these three TikTok accounts!
PLUS – TikTok ‘s algorithm is incredibly responsive, so when you engage with these recommended accounts, TikTok will serve you more comedy-related videos!
SO BASICALLY, even if you don ‘t like the TikTok accounts I recommend (which btw, ouch), you watching these videos will make your TikTok algorithm realize, “hey, this person came here for funny videos, ‘ which will result in TikTok showing you more funny videos. BOOM – it ‘s a win-win for everyone!
Anyway – here are this week ‘s Highlighted TikTok Creators:
Rich Black Guy ‘ 1.8M followers (@RichBlackGuy)
Though “Rich Black Guy ‘ isn ‘t actually “rich ‘ (yet!) his character-driven videos are! His most viral (and funny) videos include the worst baby name you can give your child during a global pandemic, personifying the four seasons and having them debate which of them is superior, and comedically explaining different types of sexuality though soda.
Not Even Emily ‘ 487K followers (@not.even.emily)
Not Even Emily, a former star on the 6-second video app Vine, has moved to TikTok and used the additional 53 seconds the app provides per video to take her oddball, straight-to-camera content to a whole new level. Whether she ‘s satirizing that guy at the party who brought a guitar, mistaking Waluigi for a porn star, or misunderstanding a phrase so badly she ruins a family vacation – her content will keep you thoroughly entertained.
Ryan Beard ‘ 1.8M followers (@ryanbeardofficial)
If you ‘re cynical (but still have a sense of humor!) you ‘re going to love Ryan Beardman. He is the king of topical humor and musical sketch comedy, and his ongoing bits including Un-Montival Mondays, Woke Wednesdays, and Fit Fridays will give you the consistency and laughter your life needs in a time where the world is falling apart.
Like my TikTok recommendations? Cool. Got better ones? Awesome! If there ‘s a TikTok account you think FOD should feature, send it my way: firstname.lastname@example.org
