A Conversation with Viral Comedy Videos Creator Jesus Garcia
Pro Media Mag : Please introduce yourself to the readers and how and when did you first get into this profession?
Jesus Garcia : Hello! I am Jesus Garcia, or commonly known as Mrchuy, and I make comedy videos on social media. I first started a long time on YouTube but eventually took it to vine, then to Instagram & Facebook. I was about 11 years old when I got the interest to create funny videos and upload them to YouTube.
Pro Media Mag : What was the inspiration behind creating your own videos and starting publishing online?
Jesus Garcia : My friends and family. They would always tell me how I would always be so funny and always have a great time telling jokes. I took that very deeply and figured that I should start making funny videos and uploading them on social media.
Pro Media Mag : Do you still take it as your hobby or are you considering to take it as a full or part time profession?
Jesus Garcia : As of now, it is currently a hobby, but hope to soon take it as a full time profession. When that day comes, that’ll be the day I finally move to Los Angeles.
Pro Media Mag : What proved to be the key to your success in Instagram?
Jesus Garcia : Funny videos and collaborating. I found out that if I were to make a funny video and make people like it, they would eventually follow and encourage their friends to follow as well. Collaborating with other people that make videos as well really helps you grow your image and help the other creator grow their image as well.
Pro Media Mag : Have you worked in affiliation with companies or artists?
Jesus Garcia : Yes. I have worked with AT&T, Coke, UFC, etc. I have also worked with many Latin artists and now became great friends with them.
Pro Media Mag : Everyone has some ideal or inspired by someone. What about you?
Jesus Garcia : George Lopez & Gabriel Iglesias was my inspiration! I would always watch George Lopez on TV and Gabriel Iglesias on youtube. I loved their humor and wanted to be just like them, make people laugh!
Pro Media Mag : What are your future goals?
Jesus Garcia : My future goal is to become a full time actor and still be creating my comedy videos. Making this into my full time job is what I have planned.
Pro Media Mag : What will be your piece of advice to someone who want to be successful in creating videos and getting following?
Jesus Garcia : Don’t let anything stop you. It took years to be where I am currently at. Don’t expect to get 100,000 followers overnight. Just make good content, stay active, and you’ll eventually get there.
Pro Media Mag : What is the best way to follow you online?
Jesus Garcia : You can follow me on Instagram at @Mrchuy0123, and also my Theme account @MexicansProblemas. I also have a facebook where I post longer videos Facebook.com/Mrchuy0123. Lastly, my twitter account which is @Mrchuy0123.
