Read on to discover and learn more about the Top 100 YouTubers in Comedy.
Whinderson Nunes Batista is a Brazilian comedian, singer and YouTuber who currently resides in Sao Paulo. At the young age of 24, this sensation has managed to rally a whole nation behind him, having been named the most subscribed channel in Brazil in 2016. His channel is also the 15th most subscribed YouTube channel in the world- well deserved considering that the star had to endure the “if you fail try, try again” philosophy one too many times. The comedian decided that he wanted to be a YouTuber at the age of 15 but unfortunately repeatedly failed to get his channel recognized. He finally achieved the fruition of his perseverance and hard work, when in 2013 his old channel was hacked and deleted. From there, Whinderson went on to continuously grow in the YouTube community and as of today, he has garnered over 35 million subscribers and a whopping 2.9 billion views.
Smosh is an American sketch comedy group with a YouTube channel of the same name. It is owned and maintained by Ian Andrew Hecox and Daniel Anthony Padila. The channel is best known for its sketch comedy series, ‘Every Blank Ever’ and ‘The Big What If’. The creators are part of YouTube’s OG clan and evidently, had no problem whatsoever in winning over the YouTube community as Smosh quickly turned out to be one of the most popular channels on the platform after its creation. Since then, the Smosh Empire has expanded and now consists of a Spanish version named ‘ElSmosh’, a gaming channel named ‘Smosh Games’ and a third channel named ‘Smosh Pit’.

Luis Arturo Villar Sudek, better known by his YouTube name Luisito, is a YouTube comedian of Mexican descent, who achieved his success after he left his native city Puebla and moved to Mexico City. Luis had once before created a channel on which he posted piano covers and tutorials which failed. Now, on his current channel which boasts over 24 million subscribers, Luis has no fixed theme, but his content mostly revolves around comparing different things, traveling around the world and showing off his good Mexican genes through vlogs. The creator also seems to have not let go of his love for the piano as he once again, in 2010, created a channel called ‘Piano for cool people’, later renamed to ‘LouieArtie’, on which he posted tutorials on how to play the piano. However, Luis probably couldn’t keep up with this hobby or maybe it wasn’t getting any recognition again, a conclusion we have come to after seeing that the channel is now inactive.
The Tonight Show is the longest running late night talk-show and has been on air since 1954. The show is currently hosted by American comedian, Jimmy Fallon.

One of the oldest Spanish YouTubers on the platform is Raul Alvarez Genes- better known as AuronPlay. The YouTuber is also part of the OG clan, seeing as he joined the platform just a year after its creation. Starting off, Auron primarily posted videos critiquing various YouTubers and casually also provided his little asked for judgments on various topics, including the popular YouTube genre: gameplay. His harsh criticisms and belittling attitude caused the YouTuber to fall into conflict with his fellow YouTubers and to gain many enemies.

The evolution of his content has been a major player in his rising fame and has earned him over 16 million subscribers and 2 billion views.

FailArmy is a YouTube channel owned by JunkinMedia, which has deduced one of the smartest techniques to gain a large fan following without working on the exhausting task of creating original content. The channel primarily posts “fail” video compilations. Basically any content that makes you think “things went horribly wrong but gratefully have been caught on camera because it is also hilarious” is content that belongs on this channel.

Considering that it is also the 75th most subscribed to channel in the United States, it is hilarious how fond people are of laughing at the expense of others.
Lele Pons, upon birthed in Venezuela was actually named Eleanora Lele Pons Maronese. Isn’t that a mouthful? This star was first cast into the limelight through the now discontinued app, Vine, where she regularly posted comedic videos.

This is the official YouTube channel of the world renowned sensational comedy show, Mr. Bean. The show itself is a British sitcom which was created by Richard Curtis and Rowan Atkinson, the latter of who also portrayed the role of Mr. Bean, “a child in a grown man’s body”, who was to be depicted trying to perform everyday simple tasks but humorously failing at every attempt.

This channel is amongst one of the first that was created on the platform, dating back to late 2006. The channel is comedic in content and even 13 years after its creation posts at least 4 times a week. Fair, seeing as there are so mainly widely popular YouTubers nowadays and even this has become a challenge on who can manage to keep up with the times and stay most relevant. Anyhow, the channel itself is owned by InterActiveCorp and also has a website of its own, created 9 years before the channel, on which articles are regularly posted by a large team of content creators.

It is a well known fact that Ashish started his journey on the Vine app but since he the creator now posts content primarily YouTube, shouldn’t he have dropped the ‘vine’ from his name?

The YouTuber is known to use fowl language in a comedic manner which makes his audience appreciate him more due to his originality.

The channel was created back in 2010 and in the past 9 years, due to the popularity of the infamous Talking Tom, it has garnered over 10.3 million subscribers and 4.4 billion views. The content mainly revolves around gameplays, shows and humorous videos. Since the ‘about’ section of the YouTube channel mentions the existence of a Talking Ginger channel as well, it is safe to assume that it has also been created by the same person- or at least someone he/she knows because why else would you publicize another channel? The creator also mentions the Talking Tom and Friends channel on which videos of the show is posted, meaning that he/she might potentially be a triple threat. Whatever the case, it is seemingly obvious that the popularity of Talking Tom and his other talking friends is declining significantly, proven by how quickly the channel has been losing subscribers. Oh well! Guess it’s impossible for something to stay hyped forever.

How these content creators come up with stuff like this is absolutely mindboggling. It’s either incredibly disgusting or absolute genius, depending on the way you swing. The show also occasionally involves two other characters, namely El Aguelo who is somehow related to Drakar and The Bombo, an evil crow who hates Mecoboy. Funnily enough, The Bombo’s sister is in love with Mecoboy.
