Haha Davis is a rising comedic superstar who found fame with his hilarious videos and catchphrases like, Big Fella,” “Guard” and “Finna Be a Breeze.” His catchy wordplay, mixed with comedic skits have been mimicked by elite celebrities such as Snoop Dogg, Tom Brady, Gucci Mane, and much more. With over 50 million followers on all of his combined social media platforms, Haha Davis is here to stay.

On starting out as a comedian:

“When I was growing up, Martin Lawerence and Jamie Foxx were two guys that I definitely looked up to for inspiration to do comedy, but I just didn’t have the confidence at the time. I had a homeboy named Kevin who kept saying that I was hilarious, and he told me that I need to do something with it. This led to me getting on Youtube and going hard with the comedy and Snoop Dogg actually reached out to me and told me to keep going. In a matter of years, comedy went from being fun to now being my full-time job.”

On the video that solidified his path toward comedy on social media:

I did a skit-video called, First time getting pulled over by the narcotics police, and that was the first video of mine that went viral. That video was the start of the Haha Davis brand. this

On the Snoop Dogg co-sign:

Snoop was the first celebrity to really believe in what I was doing online. He followed me on social media back in January of 2015, and the rest is history from there.

On the work behind his videos on social media:

“It really doesn’t take long for me to create videos. I come up with ideas in my head and I execute them from there. The hardest part is the voice-over work that I do because I lose my voice due to me yelling in my videos.”

On Tom Brady, Gucci Mane, and other celebrities embracing his, “Finna Be a Breeze” catchphrase:

“The catchphrase has reached all parts of the world. From the situation with Snoop to me being on Chance The Rapper’s album, it’s been crazy. I  haven’t had a chance to take it all in because it’s happening so fast but I just have to keep going. I don’t want to get complacent at all.”

On the elevation of his brand:

“I’m doing a lot of TV appearances in the upcoming months. I’m getting my stand-up routine together and also doing movies as well. I’m giving people the opportunity to see me longer than 15 seconds on social media.”
