YouTube is quickly becoming the source for internet entertainment. Although network creations can be watched for free on Hulu, there are an unlimited amount of YouTubers who provide a laugh of their own. What’s even greater, they are uncensored (to an extent) and free to speak their minds. Here are 10 YouTube stars that you should watch. Turn off Family Guy and redirect your browsers to these top stars.
This series caught me the moment it begun on LisaNova’s channel (described below). It is a story of a young girl. Her mother is a drunk who sleeps around, her father is in prison, her grandma on her father’s side is prideful, and Molly remains bright and finds the best outlook in every scenario. It is a deep story that ran everyday for a month, but still runs less often on this channel. Start from the beginning, it is definitely enlightening. While there is little comedic value, it is worth your time.
This is a channel full of hilarious parodies of Britney Spears, Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, and more. While some of the lyrics are specifically for entertainment, others play with tabloid headlines.
While some of Brittani’s songs are a little cheesy, they make great points on social issues such as bullying and being seen as “easy.” I respect her simply because her videos are of great quality while also hitting on issues she feels need to be addressed using popular songs to do it.
This is a new channel that features the faces of a few of the YouTube stars mentioned as well as YouTube stars I have yet to mention. Some of which I don’t really enjoy and won’t mention – like davedays for instance – also appear. The Station is filled with laugh-inducing sketches. And the more YouTube stars you watch, the more you enjoy the show.
This collection of guys presents some of the funnies material I have seen on YouTube. While I enjoy their videos more than any of the others, they simply do not post nearly as many videos as the stars who rank higher. My favorite video: Things that you CAN’T do when you’re NOT in a pool.
This is the creator of MollyisSoCoolLIKE. She also created Hot Girlz which stars KassemG. Her videos often feature actors who are not yet on YouTube. She is a great actress who writes brilliant scripts and is definitely a beauty to watch. I am hoping she will be one of the ones to make it out of YouTube and onto the big screen one day.
Joe does not have nearly the views or subscribers as everyone else on this list, but he is rising in fame and – with the support of other YouTubers – is improving the quality of his videos. His cinematography on other youtuber videso (such as BrittaniLouiseTaylor’s “Don’t be a bully”) is beautiful. Pay attention to him, he will be one of the most-subscribed shortly.
Publishing videos since September 15, 2006, Phil has come to be the second most subscribed YouTube Director. While he announced on April 22, 2010 (for the 2nd or 3rd time) that he would be no longer continuing the Phillip DeFranco Show, he will continue in a different manner that is not yet released. Still, his previous 4 years of episodes are hilarious while still informing of the top news stories of the day. Check him out and make sure to see what he’ll be up to in the next few weeks.
I have been in love with this YouTube star since I saw him featured on Shane Dawson’s version of Degrassi where he played Marco. Many of his videos are simply sketches while others are California’s take on various issues such as drugs, social networking, and sex. He has the most personality out of all the stars mentioned, and a bright future in the acting business although I don’t see it extending past self-produced internet videos. But who knows, he is another star I’d love to see on the big screen (or at least an episode of CSI).
Shane is by far my favorite YouTube star. I have seen every video he has posted in the last two years. And rising to YouTube fame as quickly as he has is quite an accomplishment. He has several personalities he takes on in his videos and comes up with sketches that will make you laugh over and over again (trust me, even his first few videos STILL make me laugh). Visit his channel and subscribe. Tell him I sent you, maybe I’ll get a mention on Twitter, I’ve yet to have him reply to me.
