How To Make A Living Out Of Impersonating The Kardashians
In the world of meme pages and Insta-celebs, @bennydrama7 is one of the best accounts out there.
It's a collection of hilarious parody videos, from beauty queens to art students, 'bros' and of course celebs (his most popular being his hilarious impersonations of the Kardashians), literally no one is safe!
With over 55K Instagram followers and a bangin' YouTube channel, Benny is on the fast track to achieving his ultimate goal of nabbing his own show.
We hit him up to ask what it's really like to be an Insta-star and how other budding actors can follow suit...
How did you get started?
I got started making short comedic films for my Instagram and YouTube about two years ago, and I have been addicted ever since!
What do you think sets you apart from other Social Media celebs?
I would say I do more theatrical and less slapstick, prank, or Vlog-based content. I love developing characters and seeing who my followers connect with the most.
What do you see as the biggest challenge for you?
Editing is VERY time consuming for me because I am a bit of a perfectionist. Also I think just getting the word out and getting eyes for all of my content. There is so much media being made every day so competing with that can get overwhelming.
What does your team look like? Or is it just you?
Well my production is usually just me, but a lot of times my friends and family help me shoot the projects and give me feedback on early edits. They are definitely so sick of videos, but they fake like they aren’t VERY well!
Where do you see ‘@Bennydrama7’ in the next 5-10 years?
I see all my characters growing and hopefully making their way to more eyes across more media outlets. I’m in the process of writing a show as well, so I’m so excited to see what that looks like.
What’s your next step?
My next step is to keep writing, acting, and making more projects that excite me, and hopefully my followers as well!
