TikTok has become one of the most popular social media apps in recent history, thanks to its unique take on video and photo sharing. Many people use TikTok to create and share dance videos, lip-syncing videos, and other types of short entertainment clips featuring their friends or family members. Others are using TikTok to give comedy skits or other entertaining content a place to live that doesn’t rely solely on YouTube. 

There are plenty of dancers, of course, but many people are finding success on tiktok by posting original sketches and other forms of comedy content. And unlike Vine, creators aren’t just relegated to six-second loops or longer videos—they can post any kind of content they want. This has led to some very funny videos that run for well over one minute in length and engage viewers who aren’t interested in watching dance after dance after dance.

Musical parodies, musical storytelling, and comedic skits are all popular ways to use tiktok. But what is particularly powerful about these videos is how you’re able to get attention for other aspects of your life just by getting views.

@PeteyUSA is someone who came across my radar because of his hilarious yet awkward comedy bits he posts on TikTok.

Turns out...he's not just a weird dude that posts goofy videos...he's used the platform and his 998.2k followers to promote his music.

He'll be performing in Davenport this weekend at the Raccoon Motel.
