Americans are discovering the chaos of Karl Stefanovic after viral TikToks

"My man did EVERYTHING he could to keep it together."

Karl Stefanovic may be a well-known face in Australia with his long reign on the Today show, but the TV host is gaining newfound popularity internationally after his more chaotic moments have found their way to TikTok.

Recently, one particular clip went viral online, amassing over 12 million views on TikTok after a young comedian delivered a stellar joke on the Today show that sent Karl falling off his chair laughing.

Since that moment, more chaotic videos have been uploaded that show Karl with his trademark sense of humour losing it at certain innuendos, rogue interviews, accidental slip-ups, or debates with his co-hosts.
