Trevor Wallace was a Vine star at the height of the platform’s popularity.
He captured the attention of a global audience with his six-second skits, pranks, and general shenanigans.
At one point before the video-sharing platform shut down, he’d racked up 14 million views on one video.
Now, Wallace is delivering us an ongoing social and cultural commentary—complete with all the belly laughs.
Nobody is safe from Wallace’s ironic sense of humor and ability to enunciate everything ridiculous about pop culture.
Apart from his massive following—he’d racked up 2 million YouTube subscribers and 357 million video views by 2021—he was also a Finalist at the 12th Shorty Awards in the Comedy category.
And he’s got merchandise.
And an online course.
And a podcast.
Here’s everything you need to know about Trevor Wallace.
The Origin Story
Trevor Wallace was born on December 30, 1992, in Naperville, Illinois. Naperville sits 25 miles west of Chicago.
His family is Jewish.
Not long after he was born, his family moved out to California.
He grew up in Camarillo, which is also home to Kaley Cuoco of The Big Bang Theory, and the Olympic gold medalist tennis players, the Bryan brothers.
After graduating from Lincoln High School, Wallace headed to San Jose and enrolled at San Jose State University.
It was during his time in college that he founded the San Jose University Stand Up Comedy Club—which is still going strong in 2021.
He was also a member of the Delta Upsilon fraternity.
Trevor Wallace had dated a few girls on and off over the years.
In 2017, he was single when Jessica Lackmeyer commented on one of his posts. He’d already achieved a moderate level of fame—having been a major hit on Vine until it went defunct that year.
He checked out Lackmeyer’s profile, and liked what he saw. In fact, according to an interview Jessica did for Wallace and Michael Blaustein’s Stiff Socks podcast—he liked three of her pictures.
Wallace also noticed that Jessica was in college nearby—at the time she was studying at USC.
She would go on to graduate with a double major in 2019, after 5 years.
The pair went on a date in Santa Monica, but not a lot came of it. They stayed friends, and eventually—in 2019, at the height of his fame—she sent him a message to say she was going to one of his shows.
They went on several dates, and Lackmeyer ended up inviting Trevor around for wine and a movie.
They started dating, and were still going strong in 2021.

A Lucrative Career
Wallace might be all over the internet now—having appeared on Comedy Central, MTV, The LA Times, The New York Times, Business Insider, Buzzfeed, Men’s Health, and Barstools Sports—but he’s worked hard to get here.
The comedian, writer, actor, and podcast host initially started making Vine videos while he was in college.
After Vine disappeared, he transitioned to YouTube along with the rest of the Vine celebrities, and started producing more content.
He coined the phrase, “Ain’t no laws when you’re drinking claws,” in reference to White Claw Hard Seltzer in 2019.
He even put the catchphrase on his merchandise, until the company hit him with a cease and desist order.
2019 also saw Wallace headlining at venues like the Orpheum Theatre in Arizona, Nashville’s Zanie’s Comedy Club, and the San Jose Improv.
He toured the US appearing at colleges and clubs, eventually appearing at the Gramercy Theatre during the New York Comedy Festival—alongside industry greats like Nick Kroll and Trevor Noah.
It was also in 2019 when Trevor and his buddy, Michael Blaustein. Blaustein, a fellow comedian and award-winning writer, has appeared on Comedy Central, CBS’s Person of Interest, two MTV pilots, and the last season of Punk’d.
The pair have based the podcast’s premise around doing “weird stuff” and then talking about how weird it was.
Trevor’s girlfriend, Jessica, also appears on the podcast in July of 2021, to talk candidly about dating—and specifically getting physical with—Trevor.
