From one-liners to loaded scripts, comedian and actor KING BACH moved on to reign greater heights in the silver screen, proving his comedy chops can reach beyond six seconds of fame.
We’ve seen a glimpse of his contagious energy through our small screen, and he proved how he could pack a winning punch line that hits harder than any time limit through his comedic pool of online shorts. With makers of online videos knocking on the door to movie stardom, King Bach breaks through and sits on a gold mine, and now everyone in the red carpet wants a piece. Now put on the map and under casting directors’ radar, he parlayed his fame to his long-time dream of “being the biggest movie star” and in just this year alone, he was looped in on several projects such as Lionsgate’s upcoming comedy feature film, “Where’s the Money,” which he also served as executive producer.
“I just work hard and grind like it’s still my first day in the entertainment business.”
Soon after that, he was whipped onto the next project in the Netflix horror film “The Babysitter,” plus a lead role in another Netflix comedy “When We First Met” and finally another lead in “To All The Boys I’ve Ever Loved Before” which is based on the novel by bestselling author, Jenny Han. Double tapping a wider spread of interest, his ambush of projects are carried as fast-paced as his signature gags. “Not much of a change since 2015. I just work hard and grind like it’s still my first day in the entertainment business,” the jester quips on his swift and convincing rise to prominence. “Doing the Internet videos prepared me for all these feature film roles that I am now doing. Each role challenged my acting skills in a different way,” he adds, “Most directors that I work with allow me to improvise. So working on the film set and working on my set is pretty much the same.”
“Doing the Internet videos prepared me for all these feature film roles that I am now doing.”
Going from zero to hero in a matter of seconds, the hard-working comedian juggles different hats as an all-around creative from the get-go with different inspirations capturing a different phase in his life – first bit by the acting bug from a young age, his comedic blueprint was built off of films like Rush Hour 2, The Mask and Men in Black, and of Jim Carrey’s expressive humor, as hints of his slapstick sensibilities shine through in King Bach’s antics. Now moving onto a bigger screen, he kicks being a regular goofball on the curb with one project after another lined up for him. “Jim Carey inspired me to be an actor. Donald Glover inspired me to pursue filmmaking on my own,” he continues, “Comedy comes natural to me, but your boy can get down with the drama too.” With a PhD on sarcastic studies, he also majors in filmmaking and understands the science of social media down pat. “I learned countless things as an actor, director, writer, and producer from filming on my own. Now, I know what things are most important to completing a scene and a shot,” he explains, and now running on different roles, one would wonder how he delivers each unique voice the same funny way people love him for. “My entire focus is being the character and being involved in the moment,” he adds, “I don’t look for any specific roles, just a good script. I love having fun with a good script.” With his quick-fire wit crammed in rapid frames, he delivers his lines in a stupefying flurry of humor that leaves a lasting ache one gets when there’s too much laughter. “I don’t know what’s next. All I know is every step I take is in the right path of God’s journey for me.”
