In such a content-saturated platform like Tiktok, these Tiktokers’ sidesplitting content deserves a place in your Following or For You feeds.
Being funny is enough to get you clout, but to be truly successful on TikTok, you have to be consistent, smart, and strategic with your content. If you stick to your shtick and are consistently funny while still bringing something new, then you’ve struck gold. Just look at these seven TikTokers who hit gold with their comedy with their specific comedic niches and rake in millions of views!
SABRINA BRIER’S “THAT FRIEND” SKITS
@sabrina.cinoman.brier She needs all the attn #comedy #friends #nyc ♬ original sound – Sabrina Brier
Sabrina is TikTok’s (and X’s) it-girl right now, what with her accurate and authentic portrayals of friendship and girlhood, as well as her stellar fashion sense. Her content revolves around points-of-view videos about certain types of friends, like “the friend who overthinks everything” (relatable), and they’re so real that you often associate them with people you know—for better or for worse.
DELANEY ROWE’S INCREDIBLY HARD-TO-WATCH SKETCHES
Wanna know a secret?♬ original sound – Delaney Rowe
Delaney Rowe blew up on social media because of her scary-accurate sketches depicting character tropes like the “insufferable lead in an indie movie,” celebrity promo like “what’s in my bag” videos, and grating, real-life personalities like obnoxious restaurant-goers or full-of-themselves gym bros. Watching her videos is like watching a train wreck—it’s painful, and yet you can’t look away.
ESNYR’S SPOT-ON HIGH SCHOOL POVS
Every may school program talaga😭✋🏼♬ original sound Ranollo – Esnyr
Filipino TikTok star Esnyr Ranollo made a name for himself as the go-to source for nostalgic school skits and POVs that capture the raw essence of Filipino high school. His portrayal of all the different types of people you probably went to school with and the different situations you probably have also experienced, like trying to escape cleaning up the classroom after class if you were a “cleaner” for the day, or trying not to laugh when your teacher’s voice cracks while giving you a lecture, makes for entertaining and addictive scrolling.
YASMINE SAHID’S WATTPAD-INSPIRED PEDRO PASCAL SERIES
@ladyyasmina1 *sigh* A girl can dream #pedropascaltiktok #imagines #fanficswattpad ♬ Night Changes – One Direction
The TikToker initially known for her “Jasper from Twilight” skits and nostalgic reenactments of youth culture started up a brand new one-woman series all about a new, young assistant named “Baguette” who is in love with her boss—who is none other than Pedro Pascal! The skits, narrated in classic Wattpad-style prose and edited in an almost realistic way, are so cringeworthy that they make you want curl up into a ball, and yet they’re so captivating you still want to know what happens next.
DR. MIAMI AND SANTINA’S SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
Neither of us is going home until the video is perfect!♬ original sound – The Injustice hub
Plastic surgeon Dr. Miami and his spunky Gen Z social media manager Santina are a pair always on top of the TikTok trends and pop culture news. The dynamic they portray on TikTok as an older professional at the mercy of a young, social media-savvy girlboss is hilarious as Santina makes the surgeon (and even his entire family) make viral content on the platform often at the expense of his pride. The devil works hard, but Santina works harder.
@JANELLEVEN’S CATHOLIC SCHOOL STORYTIMES
@janelleven please lang 💀 #storytime #highschool ♬ original sound – janelleven
TikTok has revealed to the world which of us are great storytellers, and which of us are not. TikToker @janelleven proves they’re the former with their Catholic school storytimes chronicling all the shenanigans that went on in their school, like the time there was an almost-stabbing and the time their batch was involved in an almost-lawsuit. The way they tell a story is as detailed and engaging as your best friend who just acquired some piping hot tea, and makes you wonder what the heck kind of school they went to.
ADRIAN BLISS’ COSTUMED COMEDIES
@adrianbliss Why mammoths went extinct #mammoth #noahsark #comedy (costumes @halloweencostumes.com ♬ original sound – Adrian Bliss
This one might be a bit of an acquired taste, but Adrian Bliss’ skits starring everything from animals and bugs to historical and biblical characters, aliens to bodily units, and more, are addicting to scroll through. His fourth-wall-breaking videos, complete with all-out costumes, are produced with much commitment and dedication to situational comedy and deadpan humor.
