David Alan Grier drops by Liza Koshy’s house in new clip from YouTube Red’s ‘Jingle Ballin”



David Alan Grier is ready to party with YouTuber Liza Koshy.

In a new clip from YouTube Red’s holiday special Jingle Ballin, the actor — who plays Liza’s neighbor Colin— “overhears” her plans to throw a holiday party.

Mashable got an exclusive look at the clip (above).

The special follows a homesick YouTuber, also named Liza, who decides to invite the entire internet world to her holiday party so she won’t be alone for the holidays.

Koshy stars alongside David Alan Grier, Chris Kattan, and Aly Mawji. Other guests include Kiana Ledé, Iqbal Theba, Amy Farrington and Johann Urb. There are also cameos from YouTubers Timothy DeLaGhetto, Gabbie Hanna, Alx James, Zane Hijazi and Meghan Rienks. Read more…

Liza Koshy’s ready for her holiday party with YouTube Red’s ‘Jingle Ballin”

Everything I come up with myself has been seven minutes and below. Shorter form … I was super excited to create something longer and see if I could even do it.” Read more…
