Tal Fishman (born on December 27, 1996), commonly referred to as his online alias, Reaction Time, is a YouTuber who specializes in reaction videos where he reacts to popular videos on the Internet suggested by his fans. He has a younger brother named Adi Fishman, as well as an older sister named Shani Fishman. Tal currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.
He uploaded his first video to Reaction Time on his birthday in 2015. He used to make comedy skits with his younger brother on a different channel in 2014, called "Tal and Short." They thought they weren't funny but continued because their fans wanted. His brother lately lost interest in making videos and they stopped. But Tal Fishman didn't want to stop filming, so he created his active main channel and other channels along the way.
Unlike most reaction channels, Tal typically does not react to other videos but instead reacts to various photos and-and other things on the Internet with a lot of fancy editing to make his videos more entertaining. He will sometimes make reaction videos with his two friends, Michael and Anthony, who also have their own YouTube channels, his brother Adi, who also has his own YouTube channel and he has made one video with his friend Cenna, who edits and films Adi's videos.
In March of 2016, his subscriber count had been consistently increasing considerably fast but has been slowing down since April of 2017.
Unlike most gaming channels, Tal tends to upload gameplays of flash/low-budget/indie games rather than high-budget games (except GTA V) and does not have a consistent series of lets plays (except for Flix and Chill, which has 3 different episodes [and counting]).
Free Time is Tal's newest channel. On this channel, he posts challenges, vlogs, and other things he does with his friends. This channel features his brother, Adi Fishman, Michael and Anthony, Cenna (He was in the episode of reaction time where Tal reacted to a YouTuber named Poppy), David, Nick, and Jojo. Originally, this channel was Tal and Short.
Tal and Short
Tal uploads videos of skits and challenges on this channel with his brother, Adi. The name of this channel is also a wordplay on Tal's name (Tall and Short) since he is considerably taller than his brother. This channel is now Free Time.
