Who’s Mans is This…11 Questions with TravQue

You’ve probably seen the multiple reposts on social media via blogs of a specific comedian confessing his appreciation for a woman’s beauty and in the same breath saying “…now walk away from me” while walking off in the opposite direction. All while leaving the women confused and lost for words. But on the other hand those watching understand the prank and are laughing at his hilarity. A few of his ‘victims‘ include Tami Roman, Cardi B, Dej Loaf, Remy Ma, Issa Rae, Regina Hall and so many other beautiful women in and out of Hollywood.

His name is TravQue and he’s a New York City based comedian who had his first taste of viral fame a few years ago when super star Rihanna reposted him screaming at the top of his lungs Drake’s lyrics “Running through the 6 with my woes” in a fast food restaurant leaving all customers and employees a bit frightened at first as well as confused, but us on the other end, again cracking up at his shenanigans.

Dude is hilarious and spends time grinding and figuring out new and creative ways to keep us all in stitches via social media. As Trav rises the comedic fame ladder many are not aware of his background. Here’s a few facts, he’s of Jamaican descent, a Lincoln University graduate with a degree in Science, and is a member of the fraternity Omega Psi Phi. Continue reading below as we asked him 11 questions about himself, his career and his future.

.

.

 

 

1. You’re very bold and original when it comes to your content on Instagram. Especially when you incorporate random, off-guard people on the street. What’s the most memorable reaction you’ve had from someone?

.

.

“The most memorable reaction I’ve had, not only from someone but from a group of people, was the first time I walked inside of McDonald’s, I screamed and walked out like nothing happened. A lot of people said I was crazy, a lot of people said this about me or whatever. But that the first video that ever went viral in 2013 on Vine. That’s when I knew I had something going and that’s why I continued to do what I do. I love the reactions. It’s all about the reactions from the people.”

.

.

2. What started the β€œNow walk away from me” videos?

.

.

“‘Now walk away from me’ was something I use to do regularly without recording myself. The first time I ever recorded myself doing it was to a group of girls at a college football game. I saw the reactions and I’m like, ‘I have something going here.’ Then, I started going to different schools, different events, catching random females. Where it really took off was when I started catching celebrities and catching their reactions because no one was doing that. It was different and everyone loved it.”

 

.

.

3. How did your mother sending you to live in Jamaica help you find your love for the entertainment industry?

.

.

“As a child, you know your mother is and I knew who my mother was, even though I was young. Her not being around, I needed something to compensate for because I didn’t know how long she would be gone. I just knew that she wasn’t around anymore. So, I found a love in entertainment and technology at an early age. Something to keep me going from being in the city, even though I was two years old, it was still a different experience. I don’t remember too much, but my family just told me I took a liking to technology and entertainment.”

.

.

 

4. Some people don’t know that you have a degree in Science from Lincoln University. Why was that your choice of studies?

.

.

“Honestly, that’s what my parents wanted me to do. My father was in the health field, my mother was in the health field, so growing up in a Caribbean household, you basically like to follow your parents’ rules. The crazy thing is, I ended up in grad school for a semester, then I looked at my professor, even though I got good grades, and said ‘This is not what I want to do.’ She looked at me and said, ‘What do you mean?’ I said, ‘This isn’t what I want to do. I shouldn’t be here. I want to chase entertainment.’ She said, ‘Well, you’re doing good here.’ I said, ‘Yeah, but it’s not what I want to do and I won’t be happy.’

You have to do what makes you happy at the end of the day. If you’re happy you can put that energy out into the universe and make someone else happy.”

 

.

.

5. Does living in a culturally-rich place like New York play a role in what you create?

.

.

“It definitely does. There are different cultures in New York and you learn things from these different cultures. You’re able to adapt to different cultures. I play a Jamaican character, I play a Spanish character, and I’m just able to expand my creativity being around these different cultures.”

 

.

.

6. How has your life changed since your growth of popularity on social media?

.

.

“My life has changed for the better. It’s put me in place I’ve never thought I’d be in. When I walk in certain places, I have people who notice me and that warms my heart. Like, people out there genuinely support what I do and I love my supporters because they keep me going.”

.

.

7. You’ve had the pleasure of meeting a lot of celebrities as your career has been blossoming. (Rickey Smiley, Roland Martin, Metro Boomin, the Ebro in the morning crew, etc.) What role has meeting such influential people in the industry played in your professional growth?

.

.

“Honestly, anytime I run into these influential people, they leave me with something. Whether it’s advice, or the direction to go in. The first time I ever met my brother, (and I call him my brother because that’s my fraternity brother, Rickey Smiley) I said ‘I act and I do comedy.’ He said, ‘Let me tell you something. I can’t do anything for you. You’re going to have to meet me then.’ See, that would push some people away. That made me go harder. People don’t understand everyone can’t do everything for you. You have to get it on your own. That’s what I’ve been learning and that’s what keeps me going.”

8. What was your experience like being on the BET Awards red carpet this year?

.

.

“It was amazing! Can I tell you my story? The night before, which was the Friday night, my flight got cancelled. The morning after, my flight was delayed, so I ended up making it to L.A. late. Now, this was a connecting flight going to L.A. then going to San Jose. I don’t like checking in my bags, but they made me check my bag, so I said, ‘Sir, I know this is a connecting flight. Please let my bag end up in L.A.’ He said, ‘I got you.’ I get to L.A., guess where my bag is at: San Jose. So, I end up having to buy new clothes and everything because they told me I wouldn’t be able to get my bag until that Sunday morning. So, when I call that Sunday morning and asked if my bag’s there, they said I wouldn’t get it until Sunday night…I told myself I wasn’t going to let that get me down.

I ended up going to the awards, ended up on the red carpet, and meeting a lot of people. Everyone was cool! Shout out to BET and everyone I caught and didn’t walk away from me!”

9. What’s some advice you would share with the our readers that may aspire to have a career like yours?

.

.

Its very simple: Be yourself. I live by the motto, ‘Stay Humble. Stay Working.’ When you stay humble, you attract more people like you and you can’t lose working. Being yourself, you attract people like you. Being yourself, you can launch your own career. Being yourself, you never know where being yourself can take you. That’s why I tell people to be themselves. That’s it.

Don’t try being someone else, don’t focus on what the next person is doing because if you’re too focused on what the next person is doing, you’re not putting that energy into yourself. Continue being yourself and doing what you do.

.

.

10. What are some projects you’re working on that we can look forward to in the near future?

.

.

“There’s a project called Deliver Our Love, which is a web series that I worked on. We actually wrapped up about a month ago. It”ll be out real soon.

There’s another project called The Wrong Bodega, which is actually on YouTube but it just got picked up by a film festival. It’s starring Marc John Jeffries. I’m in it too…Just know I have a few things coming up.”

.

.

11. Where do you see your career going in terms of acting? Would you be more interested in staying in the comedy lane, or do you see yourself trying your hand in more serious roles?

.

.

“I want to be an all-around entertainer, not only comedy because I feel as though I can play all genres. I’ve had to play roles where I had to be serious. I might upload it on my Instagram one day. I might post comedy content and then a role where I might have to be dramatic just to show people my versatility.”
