Dave Keystone | The Key To Snapchat Happiness Is Rock Solid Comedy
“Back in the 1990s I was a stand-up comic and in comedy we have a term called pacing or comic timing.
Its when to pause, when to hit a specific word. That makes our comedy work.”
Darrell “Scooter Computer” Stern CEO of Stern Inbound Marketing
When you only have 10 seconds a snap, this might seem impossible, but not for Dave Keystone.
His fast paced one-liners, energy, and tone take you on a fun, funny and really addictive journey from Bar Mitzvahs to trips around the world.
We sat down with this Snapchat Comedic SuperStar to ask him how he discovered Snapchat and how it has changed his life.
SCSMM: How did you first discover Snapchat?
An ex-girlfriend insisted that I get on Snapchat to communicate with her. Shortly thereafter I was cast on a campaign by an airline to travel and Snapchat my experiences. Through that, I became a more consistent snapchatter.
SCSMM: Why do you think Snapchat has taken off?
Originally because people were excited by the idea of sending content that would erase itself. It then developed into an app that combines communicating with friends, with being able to post to your story (essentially your own reality show), with the ability to take in curated publication content. It combines three desirable elements that people want.
SCSMM: What do you like to Snap about?
Getting through life.
SCSMM: Why should everyone follow you on Snapchat and watch your stories every day?
I’m not convinced they should, (believe me, EVERY ONE OF YOU SHOULD) but if they do tune in, what they will receive is comedic based observations about life. I like to keep things funny and interesting. I’m very much a reality based program that keeps things fun.
SCSMM:What would you recommend someone do just starting out on Snapchat?
Be yourself and have fun with it.
SCSMM: Have you ever been hired to represent a brand or product on Snapchat?
SCSMM: If so which ones?
WOW Airlines, Taste Toronto, and Access Education, to name a few.
SCSMM: How do you develop your Snapchat stories? Are the spontaneous or do you plan them out?
SCSMM: What else do you do? What is your business?
I host television, host and produce content and events, and snap J
SCSMM: How do you think Snapchat has helped your life and business grow.
Through WOW Air Snapchat sent me on an amazing summer tour of Europe and Iceland. I then piggybacked off the experience and went to Morocco and Guatemala.
Snapchat gave me a daily audience with whom I can exercise my comedic sense, and share fun things.
SCSMM: Who are YOUR favorite influencers on SnapChat?
To be honest, I don’t tune into specific people’s content. I follow back everyone who follows me, so my story list is literally thousands of people. I scroll through strangers’ content and find that to be the most fun. I do however keep track of what Frankie Greek, Scott (IntrepidEscape), and Georgio.Copter are up to.
