Liza Koshy biography

Born Elizabeth Koshy on March 31, 1996 in Houston, Texas, she studied business marketing at the University of Houston.

In 2015, she moved to Los Angeles, California to pursue her career two years after she started making Vine videos.

Starting in 2013, Lizzza was responsible for a number of viral comic videos posted on Vine and when the app closed in 2017, she had more than 5 million followers.

During this time, she had also become a notable presence on YouTube and, ahead of the 2016 election, Liza interviewed former President Barack Obama on her channel to encourage voter registration.

Her facial expressions and her ridiculous nature has always drawn in a wide audience but also commenting on issues such as anxiety and internet trolls has ensured that she remains relatable.

In 2017, Liza became the fastest YouTube personality to reach 10 million subscribers and she had more than 15 million followers on Instagram, 11 million on Musical.ly, 2.8 million on Facebook and 1.8 million on Twitter.

Hosting the 2017 Golden Globe Awards pre-show earned her 2.7 million live viewers on Twitter, setting a record for the platform and she went on to present MTV’s Total Request Live. She also conducted interviews on the Met Gala red carpet on behalf of Vogue.

As well as her starring role in the Hulu original horror series Freakish after appearing in Boo! A Madea Halloween and the YouTube Red series Jingle Ballin’, she had a role in the film FML and in YouTube’s reality series Escape the Night.

Liza will star in and co-produce the YouTube Red series Liza on Demand and she will voice the character Owl in Crow: The Legend.
