Recently, Marshmello has been nominated for Song of the Summer at the 2022 Video Music Awards, making tonight’s ceremony yet another example of his ubiquitous presence throughout the previous few years.

The age-old question of “what does Marshmello look like in real life?” has been Googled at breakneck speed. You mean behind that huge, marshmallowy grin? We proceeded to investigate thoroughly, and *drumroll, please* we have discovered THE ANSWERS YOU SEEK.

Keep in mind that although it is 99.9 percent certain that Marshmello is who he claims to be, he has not officially acknowledged his identity, so all of this should be taken with the tiniest pinch of salt.

For a long time, nobody knew who Marshmello was; in 2017, however, he was finally outed as DJ Christopher Comstock (also known as Dotcom). Skrillex played a role in the “UNMASKING” by posting a video on May 19, 2016, in honor of Marshmello’s birthday. Which, um, happens to be Christopher’s birthday as well.

Forbes then said on November 14 that they could “conclusively report that they are the same person,” based on evidence like Marshmello’s inclusion on Dotcom/Christopher Comstock’s management roster and the fact that Christopher Comstock is identified as Marshmello’s holding company’s manager. Chris Comstock = Dotcom = Marshmello was confirmed by unknown sources, according to the publication.


Marshmello Face Reveal Sends Twitter Into a Frenzy

After multiple Twitter users applauded an image of him uncovered, Marshmello may have finally disclosed his true identity. Social media has been taken over by fans of the 29-year-old musician.

The musician has gained international recognition thanks to his iconic white mask. He started out his work incognito because he didn’t want the attention and admiration that would come with being publicly recognized.

The founder of Alone tweeted in 2017 that he just wanted to “create something positive for people to connect with” without the pressures of fame. The artist may have reconsidered his decision to remain anonymous, however.

On May 15th, a fan sent an Instagram photo of the famous musician, whose true name is Christopher Comstock. According to the tweet’s caption, the DJ could “get it anytime any day anywhere im serious.”

Marshmello Real Face Behind The Mask

Marshmello’s true identity was hidden from the public for quite some time. But then we learned that Marshmello is actually just another name for Chris Comstock. He is also known as “Dotcom” online. It was on Comstock’s birthday, May 19, 2016, that the mask was finally off, thanks in large part to a video made by Skrillex in honor of Marshmello.

Skrillex received a call during his conversation with Katie Couric. Katie introduced herself and said, “It’s Chris,” to which he responded, “Oh, Marshmello.” Marshmello’s real name is Christopher Comstock, but he also goes by Dotcom, and now you can quickly and simply look at more photos of him on Instagram.

When Did Marshmello Come into the Spotlight?

In 2015, at age 29, he released his debut single, Wavez. He released the track on SoundCloud in the start of 2015. After that, he put out reworks of songs originally performed by American DJ duo Jack Ü and Russian-German DJ Zedd.

He kept putting out music, and eventually other musicians started taking notice. Skrillex first took note of him and afterwards showed his support by sharing a track from him called Find Me on SoundCloud.

With Which Celebs Have Marshmello Collaborated?

The musician has collaborated with numerous notable musicians in the past. Joytime was his first studio album, and he has since released Joytime 2 (2018) and Joytime 3 (2019). Marshmello’s breakthrough came with the release of singles like “Alone,” “Keep It Mello,” and “Silence,” all of which featured Khalid.

He collaborated with Demi Lovato (OK Not to Be OK), Kane Brown (One Thing Right), Juice WRLD (Come & Go), Juice Wrld (Be Kind), Roddy Ricch (Project Dreams), and Selena Gomez (Wolves).


Although Marshmello has chosen to keep his identity a secret, he has become one of the most recognizable names in the music business. We think Marshmallows go wonderfully with hot chocolate, but in this case we’re referring to a different kind of Marshmello, the kind with a big ol’ helmet on its head.
