This year was the second year of the heat Content Creator Award, celebrating comedy excellence across the internet. Our winner is the iconic Chanel Williams!! We caught up with Williams to talk parodies, pandemics and connecting with people through making content…
CW: I share parody content, short form stuff, ‘life lessons I learned the hard way so you don’t have to’ sort of things. I just really like telling a story whether it’s something from my past or it’s a retelling of familiar ones and I’m having the most fun doing it!
FW: How did you get started as a content creator?
CW: I think the same as most in lockdown, out of sheer boredom. I deleted the app several times before I started posting on it because it wasn’t for me but I had an amazing job opportunity fall through and in the midst of stressing about that, trying to find a new job and sheltering from covid making content became a real escape for me, and then for others too which was really nice to read in the comment sections.
FW: What makes for good content?
