Since then he has continued the roll-out of unbelievably humorous reaction videos and the internet has been eating it up; including shout-outs and follows from well known celebrities such as Chrissy Teigen, Seth Rogen, Jesse Williams, and Deray. But now this internet celebrity is about to go mainstream as he’s set to make an appearance on “The Ellen Show.”
Everyone’s favorite talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres finally got a hold of his videos and she just can’t get enough. After sharing a clip of one of his videos on her daytime talk show, she also had this message for Allen. “Kalen, if you’re watching this, and you should be, I want you to come here! Call me!”
This Temple student is well on his way to the top and with the ultimate cosign from Ellen herself, he’s sure to be the next big thing in Hollywood! Expect to see him on the big screen very soon, but in the meantime check out more of his hilarious videos on his YouTube channel here.
