Who is KallMeKris on YouTube and TikTok

Kris Collins uses the handle KallMeKris on social media. She was born on July 1, 1996 and is currently 25 years old. She hails from Canada. 

She used to be a hairdresser

Before making content, KallMeKris worked as a hairdresser from home and on television sets including Riverdale. However, the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown prevented her from working. Her brother convinced her to download TikTok and she started creating comedy skits. 

“I never joined TikTok to become TikTok famous,” she told Vancouver is Awesome. “I literally did it to pass the time and all this kind of happened. But I’ve always been super into comedy. When I was little I always wanted to be a stand-up comedian, all that kind of stuff. So now that all this is kind of happening, it is kind of cool that I can start to have platforms where I can be creative.”

Fans love the different personas she takes on, like a dude-bro named Chad, a tiny-handed toddler, a woman named Janet and her son Riley along with her 12-year-old self.
