Millions of people use TikTok around the globe and this social networking tool shows no sign of stopping anytime soon. TikTok is a platform for sharing short video clips, and it has served as a stepping stone for some of the most followed stars.
These TikTok stars of today already have an impressive following under their belt, most of whom command millions strong. Many on this list have risen to fame thanks to viral comedy TikTok trends and even pranks and skits that have been shared over and over again.
If you’re interested in seeing more clips that help brighten your day, make sure to keep your eyes peeled for some of these TikTok influencers. Read on to learn more about some of the most followed comedy stars on TikTok.
Zach King (@zachking) – 45.6 million followers
For those of you who migrated from Vine, Zach King certainly needs no introduction. Zachary Michael King, or simply Zach, is a 30-year-old filmmaker that has continued to make waves since his first viral hit with Jedi kittens.
Besides his age, what sets this man apart from younger generations taking over TikTok are his unique perspective and films that are straight-up hilarious and comedic in their own right. Rather than erring on “safer” content and relying on viral trends. King relies on his filmmaking abilities.
While comic and humorous clips remain at King’s core content, he does so with the use of special effects and jaw-dropping visual tricks and manipulations. Among the mind-boggling creations, he’s come up with are his Harry Potter-style broomstick trick and the launching of a model biplane.
Besides these magical tricks and filmmaking wonders, Zach King also gives his viewers a peek into optical illusions. With his one-of-a-kind approach to TikTok, it comes as no surprise that The Guardian touted King as “TikTok’s first auteur“.
Lauren Godwin (@laurengodwin) – 19.7 million followers
Coming on to King’s heels is Lauren Godwin, a 19-year-old student from Houston, Texas. While she is commonly associated with fellow comedy TikTok star, Sebastian Bails, and their relationship as girlfriend and boyfriend. On her own, however, Godwin proves that she can stand her ground.
Having started on Musical.ly, Godwin initially started creating content centered on quick sketches showing viewers a peek into the characters she played. To complete the look, Lauren often wore colorful wigs.
Though she still loves doing the characters she plays, Godwin has since branched out to other content. Today, Lauren is more attuned in keeping with viral trends and challenges, such as performing parodies and even doing prank videos either by herself or with the help of Sebastian Bails.
David Dobrik (@daviddobrik) – 19.3 million followers
Last but certainly not least is 23-year-old David Dobrik. Previously a Vine star, David has since migrated to TikTok and has amassed a strong following thanks to his funny yet heartwarming pranks.
He is never cruel nor mean-spirited, which may be one of the reasons why he is loved around the globe by his millions of fans. Even better, he commits to his “pranks” and shares his views and clips to the world in a deadpan approach.
Case in point: he married his best friend’s mom in Las Vegas and announced their divorce a month later.
While he occasionally jumps on viral TikTok trends and uses the same songs, such as the “I’m Just a Kid” by Simple Plan throwback, he adds his own twist which makes it all the more fun. Just look at the recreation of his prom photo with his assistant.
The Bottom Line
If you’re looking for hilarious comedy TikTok, look no further than these bright and funny TikTok stars. These content creators will certainly offer you something new, and they might even make you smile.
