Vine Star KC James Makes 6-Second Comedy Sketches His Career

Building a career on Vine is no longer out of the norm. The video-sharing app is home to millions, brands and users alike. So naturally, many have tried to stand out from the crowd. From stop-motion animators and musicians to dancers and comedians, Vine users have risen to fame by producing six-second looping clips. And six seconds isn’t long — but it’s still long enough for a breaking news story, promotional teaser or micro-sized comedy sketch. One Vine celebrity, KC James, recently stopped by Mashable’s New York office. In just a year and a half, James has turned a fun hobby into a full-fledged career, with more than 4 million followers on the platform. He’s well known for his series of comedy sketches, many of which involve getting hit in the face by random objects. Honest, creative and fearless, James has made a name for himself as master of capturing comedic slices of everyday situations. We shot several Vines with James while he was at our headquarters. As expected, he was a natural comedian, and one that gave 110% of his voice, energy and whimsical humor to perfecting a video. If you haven’t already, watch the video, above, to see our interview with James, as well as behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the Vines. Have something to add to this story?
