Stevin John garnered popularity as Blippi on YouTube

Blippi is hardly Stevin John’s first brush with fame on the internet space. Before coming out as Blippi, Stevin John was an LA moviemaker who used to perform on YouTube as a twee, 21st-century clown. He went under the moniker, “Steezy Grossman” to create comedy videos. Part of what he produced then were low-budget, low-brow videos with titles such as “Turdboy” and “Underwear Man.”

Upon relocating to Ellensburg, John witnessed his nephew (a toddler) watching YouTube videos that were very low quality and that was when the idea to produce Blippi occurred to him. He thus created the Blippi character as an adult male dressed up in bright clothes and dancing around the US deserted soft play center on YouTube. The 27th of January 2014 saw the release of the debut Blippi video featuring Stevin John as Blippi. He single-handedly accomplished all the filming, graphics, and editing.
