SPOTLIGHT

One of YouTube's first big stars, Christine Gambito built up a big following as "HappySlip." Her videos celebrating and poking fun at Filipino-American culture have been viewed millions of times. Now she prefers to take her one woman show and perform LIVE for audiences -- which is reminiscent of how she got her start. At family functions, she started performing comedy at a young age when her mom would request for her to do impressions of the family. Other cousins had to play piano, or sing. Christine had to stand up and do "imitation on demand". Unbeknownst to Christine, those were her early days of stand up comedy.
