The funniest artists on TikTok right now

These artists are channeling their quarantine ennui into humor on TikTok.

While the entire world is observing safe-at-home rules, everyone is turning to the internet for entertainment and connection. Social media platforms are seeing a huge surge in user engagement and content, and one platform, in particular, has emerged to the fore: TikTok. To date, TikTok is nearing 2 billion users over its lifetime. Centered around quick (60 seconds or less) content, DIY aesthetics, and an informal format, TikTok has become a leading forum for bored social media users stuck at home. 

The platform’s candid approach has also attracted some of our favorite artists and sports teams looking to reach out to their fans during these difficult times. From outrageous challenges to hilarious audio remixes, we’ve really gotten a kick out of these TikTok accounts.

JoJo

Popstar JoJo has found really creative ways to use her 60 seconds. Check out this cover she did of her own song “Leave (Get Out)”, rewritten as a stay at home PSA.

Jonas Brothers

The trio has used the quarantine to make some hilarious videos for their fans. Here is an audio remix they made to a clip of their film Camp Rock, wigs included.

J Balvin

Racking up millions of views, J Balvin’s fun and silly videos have obviously touched a chord with users, especially the ones with his puppy, Felicidad. Weaponized cuteness? We think so.
