How he became famous online

By the time he gained admission into Western Michigan University, he was already writing comedy and creating comedy sketches and while he was still a student in college, he stumbled upon the Vine video-sharing app.
Evan Breen fell in love with Vine in 2013 after seeing another comedian called Chris D’Elia’s funny videos on the app. Evan soon started creating and sharing funny contents on Vine but at first, his contents did not catch serious attention because they were poorly presented. However, he enlisted the help of another comedian called Pete Holmes, who taught him what to do and he soon improved dramatically.
Evan eventually caught the attention of a Los Angeles-based media company and this was when everything changed for him. He started gaining serious attention on Vine, raking in lots of views and very often, causing quite a stir on his ‘LAturtle’ account. In 2016, Evan had already garnered as many as 1.8 million followers on Vine and became one of the app’s well-known figures. However, Vine was shut down that same year, forcing him to seek another place to showcase his talent.
After Vine shut down, Evan turned to Instagram and YouTube and is now doing very well on the platforms. He now has nearly 400,000 followers on Instagram and almost 500,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel. Today, Evan does not just create funny content for his social media pages, he is also known to develop interesting video content for different other channels and media companies.
