TikTok has turned out to be the perfect platform for funny guy Justine Luzares to express himself creatively. He always knew that he wanted to write funny skits, but didn’t consider becoming a comedian himself, until he started using TikTok. “I realized I can actually act the part,” Justine shares. “We’re on TikTok to have fun and be entertained. Putting smiles on people’s faces is the easiest way to sell your content to people.”
Apart from showing off his funny side, his videos also give him the chance to showcase his ability to put on different accents, a talent he learned from watching movies. He first tried it out after seeing the 2004 movie, Troy, which starred Brad Pitt and Eric Bana. He says, “It was a long process. I started learning it when I was still in 7th grade. It didn’t happen overnight. It took quite a lot of movies just to somehow master it.” Mimicking speech patterns of characters from the popular TV series, Game of Thrones, particularly Viserys Targaryen, also helped Justine refine his accent. Since then, he has learned how to do Indian and Australian accents as well.

Here’s a sample of his Australian accent.
Born and raised in Leyte, Justine actually has a degree in Agribusiness from Visayas State University, where he graduated Cum Laude. Currently based in Alabang, he works as a process trainer in the BPO industry, and does TikTok for fun. Among his videos, his Marites series has become his most popular, even reaching viral status on the platform. “I have received overwhelming support every time I post a Marites video, especially the ones you can duet,” Justine says. “I guess people just found an excuse to showcase or just try a British accent through my videos.”
