If you’re in the mood for a good laugh, look no further than Trey Kennedy. The 30-year-old comedian is making quite the name for himself these days, with his all-too-relatable videos that’ll have you rolling on the floor laughing — literally.
Whether he’s imitating basic white girls in the Fall time, or perfectly depicting mothers everywhere on Thanksgiving morning, Kennedy’s clean comedy is a welcome change up from some of today’s inappropriate entertainment.
His most recent videos have been a series of painfully relatable clips of the Oklahoma native mocking middle schoolers — with over 15 million views on one video alone — and moms, with over eight million views on one episode.
I mean y’all, if you haven’t said one of these things, your mother has! Or your best friend, or your sister, or your grandma for that matter. It’s funny because it’s true!
“I never, ever thought I would be doing this,” Kennedy told TODAY. “I was a super shy kid. I am a prime example of someone who, without social media, would never have had the courage to get on a stage in front of people.”
Kennedy says he tries to build his comedy around “everyday, normal things” and behaviors that will resonate with his audience. After a video of him channeling a “dad” character took social media by storm, the comedian decided to hone in on other “characters” that people would find amusing—like moms and middle schoolers.
Y’all, he absolutely NAILS it.
“I don’t have children and I’m not a mom, but I was a middle school kid and I have a mom,” he said.
Kennedy says his inspiration comes from his own mom, Karen, whose expressions are similar to moms everywhere. And the middle school kid impressions are “just an exaggerated version of my own behavior.”
