Rising Stars: Meet Shane Nagy

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shane Nagy. We’re sure you’ve seen Shane on TikTok, but if you haven’t check out Shane’s page and story below.

Hi Shane, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I’m a comedy content creator specializing in skits! My videos are high energy with “punch angles”. Punch angles are powerful, quick zoom-ins to emphasize the high-energy lines. I create different, various series and they are short-form video.

I got started by watching Smosh, a YouTube channel all the way back in 2006. They inspired me and I made videos in 2008/2009 when I was 12/13. I then stopped and didn’t make videos until my last year of college. I was in Greek life and entered in a philanthropy called the “Greek Music Awards”. My parents are divorced and I haven’t had a picture with them since I was a child. I thought if I made a video and won the philanthropy, that I could use the trophy won as an excuse to get my parents to take a picture with me at the same time. I ended up blowing the crowd away and won. I got the gold trophy that night, but the real trophy was the picture with my parents. I figured if God blessed me with a gift that got my family together, I oughta run with it!

After I graduated, David Dobrik came to Kent to do a Q&A. I was invited to go in exchange for a promo video for Dobrik. I heard David speak about the opportunities of TikTok and moving to LA. I was inspired to form a TikTok team in November 2019. I created a TikTok account, successfully formed a team, consistency made content, etc. The rest is history.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It hasn’t been the smoothest road. After my TikTok team (The Team) gained momentum, Covid hit and everyone had to quarantine. To power through that was the most challenging, even til’ this day.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I’m a content creator who specializes in comedy skits, acting, directing, writing, etc. I’m known for my TikToks mostly, but now YouTube and Reality TV is becoming prevalent. I’m most proud of the relationships with my best friends I’ve made along my journey. What sets me apart from the others is simply the fact that I’m Shane Nagy. Woah.

Can you talk to us a bit about happiness and what makes you happy?
Charli D’Amelfio’s from Dunkin’ because I like them, they make me… happy 🙂
