Ibrahim Ismail AKA ThatGuyHabibi Putting Smiles on Faces through Social Media

Social media has been a tool for various things, from business to networking and even entertainment. Social media personalities like Ibrahim Ismail, also known as ThatGuyhabibi on social media platforms, have made a career out of entertaining people and making them laugh on social media. ThatGuyHabibi is a rising comedian, actor, and content creator on Instagram, TikTok, and other platforms. He is known for creating comic content using satire, dark humor, and other comedy elements to entertain his global audience. Some of his comedy content also relates to the everyday world, and that is why so many people find him relatable and have consistently engaged with his brand over the years.

ThatGuyHabibi is heavily in tune with pop culture and makes sure his content fits into current world events. He thrives on creating content around trending events, and his audience recognizes his efforts in that aspect. He has been a social media content creator for about three years but has been in the acting world since he was a young child. The Palestine-born comedian started in a few commercials back in Israel and has decided to scale things up with a solo career in comedy and film now that he’s older.

Versatility is one of ThatGuyHabibi’s strongest suits. Asked to describe his craft, Ismail said, “I can target every single audience type because I live in such a cultured area where the people are diverse. Diversity is the key in skits/bits and commercials. As I learn and experience life, I use what I learn as material for new content, which I feel everyone can relate to. If someone does like one video style, next week there is a whole new type of video with a whole new different scenario. This is what makes me different from other content creators.”

Building the ThatGuyHabibi brand was not by accident. It’s a dream he has nurtured from a very young age. “I was called a clown as a kid because I always made people laugh and feel better with themselves. Growing up, content creating became a thing, and I saw many people doing it. Since I once had the idea, it was easy for me to execute. I was doing it for fun at first and later took it as a career when my followers and viewers started increasing,” he explained.

Ismail’s goal is to become globally known as a social media sensation, making everyone laugh regardless of tribe or race. He sees himself becoming everyone’s favorite comedian in a few years. He hopes the ThatGuyHabibi brand gets to represent global brands while getting acting opportunities to grow his profile further. Putting the Arab-American image of an actor in people’s minds is one of the goals he wants to achieve, and it’s why he’s putting so much work into his craft presently.

As ThatGuyHabibi embarks on a global takeover with his comedy brand, he looks forward to a happier world where everyone is willing to work, interact, have fun, and do great things with one another.
