Just a few months ago Shae-Lee Shackleford, Lana Kington and Madison Lloyd were just like the rest of us car-dancing their way around Sydney hustling to make ends meet. However when they decided to film their lip-synched, choreographed moves and upload them to YouTube and Facebook things staggeringly changed overnight as 'Bohemian Carsody' and its follow-up 'Mime Through Time' rapidly garnered a staggering 260 million views across several social media platforms. (Yes, you read that right!).
SYDNEY: IS THIS THE REAL LIFE? IS THIS JUST FANTASY?! 260 MILLION SOCIAL MEDIA VIEWS AND COUNTING. AUSTRALIA'S HOTTEST YOUTUBE CONTENT CREATORS: SKETCHSHE
SketchShe are now Australia's most watched YouTube content creators. The phenomenal success of those clips saw them appear and perform on the Ellen Degeneres Show and Good Morning America, which described them as "lip synching superstars" who "skyrocketed to internet stardom." Shae-Lee, Lana and Madison do more than mime, having written, produced and starred in a range of successful sketch comedy videos. Just back in Australia after their whirlwind American tour SketchShe will share their experience of becoming internet stars, writing comedy for online audiences and how to capitalise on viral success with Friday on My Mind host Luke Buckmaster.
