After the closure of Vine, the people of the internet were searching desperately for a short video-based platform to fill the void in their hearts. After it merged with Musical.ly in 2017, TikTok began to build up some momentum as a platform for memes.
Even though most of what you’ll see on the For You page is memes, most of the really funny TikTok creators do all sorts of things, from stunts, to cosplay, to cooking, and more. Many popular TikTok creators were not popular on any other social media platform, which makes TikTok a great place to find fresh and funny content.
We’re going to look at some of the funniest TikTok creators on the app.

Emmy is one of those relatable teens with a sense of humor that appeals mostly to Gen Z kids. Her content is totally random, and she’s not shy about sharing some embarrassing personal stories, so it’s no wonder that she’s become so popular on the app.
