Career

Koshy started posting comedic videos on the now-defunct Vine in 2013, under the name "Lizzza", where she posted short comedic videos. When Vine shut down in 2017, Koshy had amassed 7 million followers. By 2016, Koshy was also becoming noted on the YouTube platform. In November of the same year, just before the election, Koshy interviewed President Barack Obama on her YouTube channel to encourage voter registration.


Koshy's videos are recognized by "her loud facial expressions, quick pace, and her commitment to looking as ridiculous as possible as the joke demands. Some of her videos take serious issues – like anxiety, the pressure to fit in, and internet trolls – and make them accessible and engaging for her viewers." She was on a hiatus from adding new videos to her main YouTube account in early 2018, as she has turned to full-time acting and hosting work. She resumed posting new videos in 2019.


In 2017, Koshy became "the fastest YouTube personality to reach 10 million subscribers". As of 2022, her main YouTube channel had over 17.4 million subscribers and more than 2.5 billion views. Her second YouTube channel had more than 7 million subscribers, and her two channels had a combined total of more than 3.1 billion views. She had more than 20 million followers on Instagram, more than 29.8 million followers on TikTok, and more than 2.8 million followers on Twitter. Time put Koshy on its “2019 list of the 25 Most Influential People on the Internet” and “2019 100 Next” list.


In 2016, Koshy starred in the Hulu original horror series Freakish as Violet Adams. She featured in the second season in 2017 as well. She played the role of Aday Walker in the horror-comedy feature film, “Boo! A Madea Halloween”, in 2016 and starred as herself in the YouTube Premium series, “Jingle Ballin”. Koshy also starred as Princess Aubrey in the 2016 comedy film FML. In 2017, she played a recurring character in the YouTube Premium mystery-reality series Escape the Night.

Koshy stars in and co-produces a YouTube Premium situation comedy series, Liza on Demand, which premiered in June 2018, "following the chaotic misadventures of the eponymous character" as she works to become an "elite tasker" doing odd jobs for pay. A reviewer for the Los Angeles Times wrote: "The first episode ... is not bad. Yet it's also ordinary and a little stiff. … But the second ... is better ... and shows off Koshy to good effect, some effective physical comedy included. It made me laugh, anyway." Season 2 premiered in September 2019.


In November 2018, Koshy voiced the character Owl in “Crow: The Legend”, an animated virtual-reality short film written and directed by Eric Darnell, starring John Legend. The film premiered on the “Liza Koshy Too” YouTube channel and Oculus VR on November 15, 2018. She returned to Escape the Night in 2019. She co-starred in the Netflix dance-comedy film “Work It” in 2020. Koshy voiced Zipp Storm in the 2021 Netflix film “My Little Pony: A New Generation”.


Koshy hosted the live pre show at the 2017 Golden Globes Awards, which received 2.7 million live viewers on Twitter, a record for the medium. She also hosted Nigel Lythgoe's series “Every Single Step” and was "the only social entertainer chosen to promote the 2016 MTV Movie Awards." She was one of the hosts of “Total Request Live'' on MTV between 2017 and 2018, while also serving as a producer and developer of content for MTV.
