Mr. Ant Davis: Introducing a Social Media Comedian on the Rise
The Son of a Preacher Man
Mr. Ant Davis is part of the Playmakers Comedy Group. Their Youtube Channel can be found here. So, Mr. Ant Davis seems to get a lot of his inspiration by tapping into his roots. Coming from a religious family, his dad was a preacher and all, and it appears he has spent quite a bit of time at church. I know a lot of people can relate. Coming from a family that is very involved in church, it's pretty much life.
As a religious church-goer, you begin to see more of a human side to the brothers and sisters at church which can be quite comical, especially for a natural jokester like Mr. Ant Davis. Taking cues from fellow churchgoers and a little bit of pop-culture here and there, and well that seems to be sort of his secret combination for such highly relatable characters that you just can't help but to laugh about.
Well, let's take a moment to consider what it's like to be the son of a preacher. If your dad is a man of God and sort of a religious leader and counselor, as we mentioned, you're going to spend a lot of time at church. In this phone interview here, Mr. Davis talks about how people think that church is just a holy untouchable place, but the way he goes about humanizing some of the different stereotypes from the choir director to members of the congregation, he shows that we are in fact, human and that's okay.
Mr. Davis Keeps it PG
The last time I wrote an article that mentioned Mr. Ant, was on 5/4/2017 for Techdigg.com. At that time he was sitting at a 4.9 star rating out of 835 reviews. At the time his latest video was "Kidz Bop Mumble Rap," as described in the article I wrote where I mentioned him along a few other notable comedians. Now he currently has a 4.9 out of a little over 1.3k reviews. He also currently has a little over 130,000 followers on Facebook alone.
His fans absolutely adore and admire him. The fact that he keeps his material relatively PG is the icing on the cake. If you notice, he doesn't really curse, or have to resort to promoting raunchy material to create content that is both relatable and hilarious.
I think people really like this about him, even though a lot of us are adults who seem to be okay with the raunchy stuff too, he sets a good example showing us that you don't have to result to "R" rated material for approval from the masses. This is actually pretty refreshing and admirable. It's a tactic that we believe is unique enough to take him places.
Here is what one of his fans even said about him:
This is a top comment with over 90 reacts on the video "Coffee Drinkers are Crazy."
"I love how funny you can be without being raunchy, sexual, or saying a bunch of curse words. Don't get me wrong, none of those things bother me, some of my favorite comedians have such sailor mouths and they crack me up, but it's also nice to have just simple, clever, non vulgar material, too, sometimes. You genuinely make me laugh with the simplest of lines 😂" -Kayla Soloman
I think Kayla speaks for a lot of us.
Do What You Love Because You Love It
Now back to the phone interview that we checked out. Most importantly, Mr. Ant mentions here that if you really love what you are doing, you'll do it without relying on the money for validation, and eventually the money will come. He talks about all of the hard work he has put into getting going in the direction he wants to be.
We love what he is doing. We absolutely adore the man and we are so thankful that he is taking the time to create content with such innocent and lovable characters. We look forward to seeing his new videos each time he has an opportunity to create something new.
Give this Beautiful Man a Blue Check-Mark
It really wouldn't bother us if we saw him receive an irrefutable offer to do his own show, or maybe even show up on someone's legitimate mixtape, you know, just for fun. We're getting used to seeing his videos circulate the internet and we think he deserves to be able to make all of his dreams materialize for the hard work he has put into his comedy acts all of these years.
It's always inspiring to see someone as likable as Mr. Ant Davis, make it to the top. With currently over 125,000 likes on his Facebook page, over 135,000 followers, and hundreds of thousands of views on his videos it won't be too long before we see one of those little blue check marks by his name.
Stay Tuned for Part 2: "The Interview"
Mr. Ant Davis is a verifiably nice, humble dude. We contacted him to do a brief interview that we will feature on our "Part 2" follow-up article on him with more info on the saga as he continues to bless us with more and more uplifting content that is sure to get a few hearty laughs out of his loyal growing fan-base. For now, we just wanted to introduce you to one of our favorite internet comedians who is quickly picking up momentum.
The next time we see him beyond the follow-up article, part 2, it might even be in a commercial or a feature film. Someone would be really smart to give this guy a call sending him some love and opportunity. Out of many of these internet comedians he's a truly genuine and likable guy who is doing everything for the right reasons, to bring some light into the lives of those who you never really know what they may be struggling with. If there is one thing I know it's that the righteous prevail, and Mr. Ant Davis is without a doubt, a righteous dude!
