Victor Pope Jr. can make you laugh in six seconds.
That’s how long his comedy videos are on Vine, an app that lets users upload six-second clips of everything and anything from music performances to rants to comedy sketches. I met Victor for a late lunch in Arlington, Texas earlier this month. He told me that he decided his Vine would show off his bid to be a professional comedian.
His offbeat take on life inspires his Vines, which are often improvised whenever inspiration strikes. But his real passion is for standup comedy, something he’s still honing. While we ate, he told me about his future goal of moving to New York and perfecting his craft so that he can become “one of the greatest standup comedians of all times.”
