In 2017 Anthony Griffin, better known as his online persona LongBeachGriffy, took the world by storm with his original comedic sketches rooted in observational humor. The California native has made his fame from his short skits that range from everyday occurrences such as "when they call you by accident" to topics like race and politics.  Despite many of his videos being provocative by nature, LongBeachGriffy has had an uncanny ability to bring realness and perspective to his content. Whether he is talking about politics or dubbed vs subbed anime, the comedy is nearly always accompanied by underlying commentary that brings light to the ridiculousness of the times we live in.
