He may have started creating six-second Vine videos , but this summer Thomas Sanders is taking his humor to the road.The "Ultimate Storytime" tour is a live musical comedy that stems from Sanders' social videos.

Thomas said the humor in the tour is good natured and everybody has a silly side to them. As he notes, "I think its important maybe now more than ever, to realize there is still silliness and happiness and things to be happy about."

There's no doubt Sanders' humor is good natured and relatable. He's amassed over 8 million followers with over 6 billion loops on Vine. He hopes to inspire his audience to be themselves and write their own narration.

The tour will hit 17 cities around the country, accompanied by characters from his hilarious social series. The tour will wrap up at Playlist Live -- an event where online creators and their fans can come together. If you want to see Thomas before his tour ends, you can get tickets here.

We recently caught up with Thomas Sanders to talk about "Ultimate Storytime" and what he hopes the audience takes away from the show.

Tell us what you're most excited for when it comes to your "Ultimate Storytime" Tour?
I'm really excited to take a piece of comedy on the road and meet so many people I otherwise would not meet and show them something you wouldn't get on Vine. It has the beauty and the comedy. Some if it is the musical comedy of my Vines but on a stage. Getting to see some of my supporters first hand enjoying the experience is something I am extremely looking forward to.

Is there a message you want to convey to fans on this tour?
Yes, actually. I hope they take away a good message of not letting anybody dictate their own story. Or having anybody else tell them who they are, describe them. The show was born out of my whole "Storytime" series which is a series of Vines I made narrating peoples lives. So, it's born out of the idea that I'm narrating the characters but the characters have other sides and stories. We all have stories to tell and they shouldn't be dictated. I hope they leave with that message.

If you know me well or have read interviews I’ve done then you know that @marthastewart has always been my biggest inspiration when it comes to food. One of my goals is to be a combination of my two idols- Martha and Andy Warhol. As a child I would dream about spending the time and care like her to prepare a table, creating something very special for people to join around and share a meal. Watching her cook inspired me to teach myself how to hand weigh ingredients, to always have my mise en place organized, how to pronounce words like vichyssoise, and her wide usage of produce variety is honestly a large part of where my curiosity for our food sparked from. With this said, I’m sure you can imagine my surprise when I was told that I was one of the 25 creatives @marthastewart is inspired by in celebration of their 25th anniversary. Thank you for helping me think and dream so big Martha, I am honored to share this and to make you all of the colors. #25yearsofmartha #foodgradients
I wanted to take a moment to reintroduce myself. I’m Brittany and I recognize that I seem to do a decent job of not sharing much about my actual self here or in interviews. I prefer to keep my art about the food and not myself. This community and my photography have become the biggest part of my life, I love it more than I have words to explain but there's more that makes me who I am. So for a quick moment here’s a bit- I’m 24, a taurus, live in Seattle but grew up in San Diego, my favorite food is a cheeseburger (super thin patty, toasted bun), my favorite bands are @stygoc and @metric, my first tattoo was the one on chest- it’s still my favorite and says β€˜love your life’, something many people sadly forget. I was raised by my grandparents, I love to make small collections of items like rocks and stickers, I grew up playing a lot of sports competitively, I love Star Wars and have Boba Fett tattooed on my arm but Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is my favorite movie. Many times I have been told that being an artist β€œcan’t be a real job” and that I was wasting my time trying to do so. I smile everyday not because I proved them wrong but because I achieved a goal. Dream big, everyone.
Thought I might start this week off with a past candy photo. Here's to hoping you all have the best days ahead! #foodgradients
