Reggie Cousar, or as he is better known, Reggie Couz, is an American social media influencer, former Viner, YouTuber, musician, and comedian. He is most famous for his comedic acts with which he has been entertaining his audience over the course of the last five years. A native of New Jersey, Couz loved performing and making people laugh since he was a child. In May 2013, he posted on Vine for the first time. Soon enough, he garnered a loyal group of fans and at the height of Vine’s popularity, had 3.9 million followers. After Vine shut down in early 2017, Couz found success on other social media platforms, such as YouTube, LiveLeak, and Instagram. As a musician and aspiring hip-hop artist, most of his content is either musical or comedic in nature. He has recently started making original R&B and soul music. Couz shares his tracks predominately on SoundCloud. Some of them have become available on iTunes as well.
- Shortly after leaving high school, Reggie Couz posted his first video, ‘How Producers Be..’, on Vine in May 2013. It did not take him long to accumulate a loyal group of followers. Unlike most popular Viners, Couz did not opt for collaborations with others. Instead, he preferred to work alone. He created content in which he played multiple characters and some of them became quite popular among his fans. One of his most well-received acts was Mr. Johnson, a music teacher who directs the hip-hop choir with iconigtydurx. His other popular characters are Stepfather, who is a giant; Father, a moustached and hat-wearing man who is known to “whoop Reggie’s ass” when he does not do what he is told; Daniel "Dirty Mercy"; a Yale graduate whose mother forced him to go to counselling after he revealed that he wanted to become a rapper; and Angry Younger Sibling, who often gets angry at Reggie’s annoying questions and starts screaming.Recommended Lists:
