Aspiring comedian Frankie Hoy has built up over 100k followers on TikTok after he started documenting his attempt to live for a month in New York City for just $100. Hoy, who says he lives in a van and works at a catering company, says in one of his videos that he’s “not poor for realizes,” but made a choice to not earn much so he could work on his stand-up.
He started his attempt on November 4th, and 27 days later he had spent $93.04 of his $100. He shows in his videos how he’s getting by, including going to a bar and eating free candy without ordering a drink, and cooking a pack of ramen noodles at a friend’s apartment.
