Social media has opened up a myriad of opportunities for many people, which has made it a competitive space to survive and thrive. However, despite the cutthroat competition on various social media platforms, comedians like Ibrahim Ismail, aka ThatGuyHabibi, have found their strong suits and are showcasing their talents and abilities across multiple social media channels with comic content.
He’s a content creator and producer based in the New Jersey area with a growing follower base on Facebook, YouTube, TikTok, and Twitter. He has shown interest in entertainment from the young age of ten, but he did not take full advantage of social media until three years ago. Starring in various commercials in Israel awakened his desire to become an actor, and that formed the basis of his entertainment career.
Putting his natural talents to use, his comic content revolves around dark humor, satire, and everyday occurrences that everyone can relate to. He seeks to provoke thoughts and keep people in the loop about the things going on in the world. His social media following totals over 40,000 followers on Instagram and TikTok, and he has garnered more than 400 thousand likes on TikTok.
ThatGuyHabibi’s content showcases an outstanding level of versatility in acting, which has enabled him to create content for various audiences globally. Ibrahim believes strongly that his diverse background set him up to be multifaceted, which has given him an edge as a social media content creator and comedian. Beyond creating comedy skits, ThatGuyHabibi interacts closely with musical artists within and outside the United States to keep him relevant and present at places where things happen in the entertainment industry.
Even though he currently has a strong presence on Instagram, ThatGuyHabibi aims to expand his reach on other social media networks and create longer content for YouTube videos to reach a larger audience. He also sometimes branches out of comedy to address sensitive social issues that matter to millions of people worldwide.
Discussing his ability to cater to a diverse audience, he said, “A good skit should have some elements of diversity. I always set out to create content that fits the idea of comedy for many people. As I learn and experience life, I use what I’ve learned as material for new content, which I feel everyone can relate to. This is beneficial because if someone doesn’t like one style of video, there will be a new one some other time, focused on a different scenario that they will surely like. This, I believe, is my superpower, and it helps me stand out from others,” he said.
As he continues growing and capturing audiences from all over the world, starting with the Tri-State area, ThatGuyHabibi is on a roll with his career and ready to take it to the next level from America to the Middle East and Arab communities. Becoming a well-known public figure is one of his ultimate goals, and he has no plans to rest on his oars.
