On social media platforms like Musical.ly and YouTube, Ariel “Baby Ariel” Martin has displayed her own brand of self-styled humor. However, in a live show she will headline one day before the start of VidCon, Martin will put her comedic instincts to the test. She is one of the influencers who will perform in an improv show that will take place at the Acme Comedy Theater on June 19.
Martin, who has for years been one of the most followed creators on the mobile video platform Musical.ly, will perform at the improv show alongside Mads Lewis, Cam Dog FX, Deven Perkins, and Cody Simpson. In order to prepare for their performance, the digital-native entertainers have taken improv classes, and they plan to synthesize what they’ve learned to craft a show that is appropriate for all ages.
The improv show is produced by Collab, which set up the on-stage opportunity for its creative partners as part of its Creator Development Program. Through that initiative, the digital network — which first rose to prominence thanks to its work on Vine — also provides branded content opportunities and channel development tools.
The show will take place at 2:30 PM PT on the 19th. Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door. To pick up your pass, click here.
The day after the show, the performers featured in it will head to Anaheim, where the 2018 edition of VidCon will take place. The annual online video gathering will run between June 20 and June 23 in and around the Anaheim Convention Center.
