Christine Gambito, also known by her screen name HappySlip, is a Filipina American internet personality, actress, and comedian. As a one woman show, Gambito writes, directs, performs, and edits the videos you may have seen on YouTube with the complete collection here on this site. Her YouTube channel has over 600,000 subscribers, and her videos have been viewed over 90 million times.
Previously, as a SAG/AFTRA actress in New York City, Gambito landed parts in television commercials, movies, and industrials. However, by September 2006, the creation of HappySlip Productions has allowed her to display her unique talents to a worldwide audience right from her own home.
Gambito’s comedy career unknowingly started around 5 years of age when she began to imitate different family members much to their great pleasure. She found herself answering requests to imitate different family members at every big holiday gathering, and didn’t realize that she was in fact performing stand up comedy. Now she takes that familiar comedy to live shows around the US and continues to create videos as often as she can.
While growing up, Gambito’s mom was always quick to remind her to wear a “half slip” along with dreses or skirts. “Kissteen! Be sure to wear your hap eslip!” However, the way it was pronounced, it somehow translated into “happy slip” in Christine’s mind. After years of this perception, Christine found herself corrected when asked by classmates if she had a sad slip as well.
The “happy slip” phrase is not only a funny memory from the past, but also a reflection of what Gambito would like people to experience when watching the videos. To “slip into happiness” and hopefully receive a bright moment in their day.
