Early Life

Violet began living in Los Angeles, California, with her parents. She attended the independent charter secondary school known as El Camino Real Charter High School in LA.

Upon her high school graduation, Violet went to enroll at the public university in LA called California State University. While growing up she always had an interest in math which led her to study accounting and business law. At the age of 20, she completed her studies with two degrees.


Violet Benson decided to become a comedian when she was voted class clown in high school, a precursor of her coming profession as a comedian. However, she first started her career in the field of accounting.

The turning point of Violet’s career came in July 2014 when she created an Instagram account titled Daddy Issues. She started posting her content on that page but she kept her identity a secret due to a lack of self-confidence.

Violet wound up garnering over 5 million followers in almost no time. She established her account Daddy Issues as one of the fastest-growing and largest funny female accounts in the world.

In August 2015 Violet revealed her identity through her appearance in the famous American TV show MTV where she was interviewed. Prior to revealing her identity, she was working as a guest blogger for MTV and especially served during the 2015 Video Music Awards.

Other Ventures

Apart from amassing millions of fans on social media, she tried her hand at showbiz and became a stand-up comedian, TV host, as well as a podcast host. Her outstanding work grabbed the attention of the renowned talent management enterprise Creative Artists Agency with whom she signed a contract.

Shortly thereafter, Violet came up with the idea of introducing her blogs which featured, videos, an advice column, and memes. Despite this, the comedian founded her merch line in 2017. That same year she teamed up with Facebook to make a show named Top Five With Violet Benson.

In 2018 Violet collaborated with an LA-based company Awesomeness and created a YouTube series titled How To Lose A Guy which she starred and wrote. In the following year, she began a weekly podcast Too Tired To Be Crazy which was about self-love. The show ended in late 2021 with its last episode entitled GOODBYE 2021.
