By now many of you have seen a number of funny videos where a young handsome man, approaches many beautiful women, compliments them, and then instructs them saying, “now walk away from me”. If you haven’t seen the videos maybe you all are familiar with the hashtags: #curvethembeforetheycurveyou, #tr4be, or #whomanzzzisthis? No? Well I suggest you keep reading to find out more about the man behind these hilarious skits.
TravQue has slowly but surely become an internet sensation. Many of us wonder “who is TravQue?” Born in the infamous Brooklyn borough of New York, Travis Thompson is TravQue, and he is arguably one of the funniest comedians on Instagram, Snapchat, and Vine. Starting from humble beginnings, at the young age of 10 years old he fell in love with the camera. Now Trav’s love has turned into him building a lucrative career. Videos on his YouTube channel dates back to about ten years. However, his videos started taking off when one was reposted by pop artist icon, Rihanna, and many others. His videos now have over 100 million views.
Some of you may know Trav’s motto, “Stay Humble Stay Working.” And it is pretty clear he lives true to that. As a follower of his Snapchat, you will see a few aspects of his day to day life. Mostly skits, and his disgusts for Mondays (hilarious btw), but he also has videos where he takes a tiny break from the comedy. On ‘Truthful Tuesdays’, he takes some time to drop a little knowledge and advice on the youngins, but only on Tuesdays, now #letthatsinkin. You’ll also notice this young man is always on his grind and he really does “Stay Humble and Stay Working”. From videos of him hosting events, to recording new scenes or skits, his Snapchat truly reveals that he is one hardworking young man. His humility is uncanny as he truly interacts with his supporters. Being one of his supporters you can expect to have random video or phone calls with him, and although his name is steady growing, he never neglects to show his appreciation to those who continue to support him.
Recently TravQue was asked, “how did he know what he was meant to do? What dream should he chase?” he simply expressed, “you never know where life is going to take you”. A graduate from Lincoln University (the nation’s 1st degree granting HBCU), I’m sure comedian/host/internet sensation did not pop up on the list of plausible occupations. However, he stayed true to himself and his dreams. I think it is safe to say life is taking him to great heights! The day we get to interview this talent will be a great one. Just like you, we also have questions upon questions for the man behind the man! We can’t wait to see more material from TravQue as he continues to grow his craft and brand! If you’re not hip, you better get to it!
Check out his latest interview on the EverydayisWCW podcast (https://soundcloud.com/everydayiswcw/the_dude_rihanna_reposted), and he can be seen featured in Troy Ave’s music video: She Belongs to the Game, and obviously on all of his social media: @travque on Instagram, Facebook, & Snapchat, and www.travque.com.
