Top Ten Most Annoying YouTubers That Try Too Hard to Be Funny


The Top Ten

1 McJuggernuggets

To me he seems like one of those people who take everything you say seriously and can't take a joke. I just don't like him. Plus if it weren't for the psycho videos he is a nobody on YouTube - ChickenKing

Just his name makes him annoying.

He is a person in his 20s with the mental capacity of a 10 year-old. He always plays the victim and can't function on his own.

This guy is a total loser. He still lives with his parents, he went to university even though he sits in his room playing video games all day, and most of the psycho videos are crap and don’t make sense! I’m planning on making a list on the worst psycho videos. - Geckovirus

2 Venturiantale

What is with the hate? They have made me laugh harder than I ever had before!

Exactly! VenturianTale is great, they make videos for everyone! No matter how young or old. Most people are just hating on them for the sake of hating. - swift104

These guys actually used to be funny. Until they started to do fnaf. Then there channel went down hill. I want the old venturiantale back. And venturian if you're reading this I want the old you back. Bring him back please

Venturiantale is the nicest funniest YouTubers that don't swear. They SO NOT TRY TOO HARDDSS

I cannot stand them all together. They all speak nonsense and yell over eachother like competing for attention. I hate hate hate the girl who uses that childish voice. She is so fake. If you can't be yourself then go away because your not funny being FAKE!

3 Game Theory

His theories suck and so do his jokes. - ClicheUsername69

I never liked him to be honest. - nintendofan126

I remember when this channel had integrity.

His jokes are funny. I really don't think he tries to hard. Besides, he isn't always wrong in his theories. He's a nice person. If you don't like his theories, watch GTlive. - LordDovahkiin

"People in this comment list need to learn proper grammar before going on websites and sharing opinions."

There are times where he's flat out hilarious, but nowadays, not so much. - MKBeast

He's pretty funny, sometimes the laughing gets pretty annoying. - AlphaQ

5 Miranda Sings/Glozell Green

She is an okay one to hang around. Until u watch the videos that are just plane out boring. Her voice sounds like a clown choking on a lion mauling its throat. And her black women counterpart Glozell Green makes the gimmick that more worst. But hey Glozell made Mirandas look a little less special. If this is a dressing trend Miranda would have to do a tutorial on how to look like a A clown on Meth to all the little boys and girls. - Jahni200

She tries way to hard to be funny but fails. - emilk

I have one of her parody stuck in my head

I think her lips are huge - AlphaQ

6 Ray William Johnson Ray William Johnson Ray William Johnson is an American actor, comedian, producer, director, writer and rapper, who is perhaps best known for his YouTube channel, Ray William Johnson, and his web series on that channel, Equals Three.

It's the crew, not the person himself.

I like he puts to much effort into a video its offers his trying tooo HARD!

Ray william johnson and his crew are porbably the most annoying out there. Kelly and Ray are doing just fine ontthe comedic assetzbut you can't go wrong without a bannana thrown at you every now and again. LITERALLY I mean who picked this cast?! - Jahni200

7 Zaju37

He is just starting out, and his story is great! Can't wait for his next episode!

He isn't funny, he just creates poorly made fnaf SFMS for subscribers. I also like how he joined in early 2015, and gained subs quickly.

! Its just so hard damn hard to watch. The SFM animation is so limited and comedic aspect is horrible. Stick with action please,because this channel just reeks of giving a bad name to a good thing. - Jahni200

8 Onision

Onision I don't think he is funny all the time, but I do find myself laughing at quite a few things. I find he is just entertaining to watch. I don't think he should be so high up on this list as there are many other YouTubers that try to hard. - Asuko

It's not trying too hard. It's called having a spine. He isn't afraid to say what's on his mind and doesn't care who he offends because he doesn't have to care. Deal with it

He's a hater and his options and points are irrelevant

9 Connor Franta Connor Franta

I do not think Connor should be on this list. There is a difference from being a try hard and pushing yourself to the best of your ability as Connor does. He is raw and has pure talent such as photography and writing he is more then what you see through his also amazing videos. He is super isnpiring and my role model. He even has a book which I read and it was written so well and has helped me so much with topics like the stuggle of fitting in and discovering yourself. I love Connor so much and he helped me more then he will ever know and it breaks my heart to see someone like him on this list.

I don't think he's trying to hard at all; Connor just has a relatable and funny personality. In fact, most of the time, he's just talking to the camera and being himself. If you find that trying too hard, then I don't know what else doesn't count.

Why is he even on this list he is queen

What? he doesn't even try at all to be funny! he's a genuine guy - johnbraganza

10 Pewdiepie Pewdiepie Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, better known by his online alias PewDiePie, is a Swedish web-based comedian and video producer, best known for his Let's Play commentaries and vlogs on YouTube. He is known for being the most subscribed-to YouTuber on the website, earning over 50 million subs.

Pewdiepie might come off as trying too hard, but that's because he does. He tries too hard for a good reason. He wants to make great videos, he tries to be funny, and he tries to be a good person. Pewdiepie is funny, but he can come off as trying too hard. What do I think? I disagree. Sorry!

PewDiePie... PewDiePie. His jokes... Sorry, screams are getting a bit too old. Sorry Bros, call me a hater but I don't think he has the comedy that others do. Plus... He inspires some of the worse games out there... Goat Simulator was a mess, I'm not going to excuse it because of Pewds... Sorry, no can do.

He gains the minds of kids by screaming and just making loud noises, but the editing is God awful it's just hard cuts and an occasional zoom in, it requires no skill to be a YouTube gamer, especially when you intertwine it with comedy that's half the time dick jokes and the other half fake over reactions, he doesn't deserve to be the number one most subbed when he has absolutely no talent

I agree

11 JackSepticEye

No he does not belong on this list. I love how some of the best you tubers are on here Pewdiepie, Smosh, JackSepticEye, Jenna Marbles, How to Basic, Bart Baker, Connor Franta and many more. They don't deserve to be on this list they work very hard on all of their videos and they expect what to do next or how well they did on producing their videos. - SeandeLlama

What? Jack is great, he tries hard. There a lot of other stupid YouTubers like Sam Pepper but NOO, the good YouTubers are the ones voted for

Jack is my favorite and I think he's naturally funny though not often. He's awesome once you get to know him since I didn't like him when I first saw him. But his humor is good - AlphaQ

He actually doesn't intend to be funny, he just acts normal. - AlphaQ

12 Lugeyps3

She just screams every time any wrestler is making their entrance and it's annoying

Her lame ways of being cool, and trying to do to much with her channel is exactly whh she is on this list. I mean why the hell would you rub your success into others faces. - Jahni200

What? She's awesome and pretty!

She is your prototypical kid wrestling fan. corny. over the top. a john cena mark, not surprisingly.

14 LeafyIsHere

Some of his arguments have a point, but he occasionally harasses YouTubers with bad quality videos and makes fun of autistic, mentally challenged or disabled people.

He is funny, but his fans are 12 year olds who think suicide is funny

I don't like him because he bullies lite kids

Pure trash

15 Bart Baker Bart Baker Bart Baker is an American entertainer, web-based comedian, video producer, singer and parody artist. He is best known for making parody videos of notable songs, which he posts on his YouTube channel.

He tries to make his jokes sound funnier by making faces that no joke look like he's constipated. He can't song for crap. If you met him in real life I guarantee his joke would sound like the most try hardest at the party. He doesn't have any original ideas because all he does is play off what everybody already thinks about the singer he's parodying. He adds those stupid skits at the end (probably for more ad revenue) and gets the worst actors on YouTube to be in them... oh wait HE is the worst actor on YouTube. He had JAKE PAUL in one of his videos. His channel is two words. Pure. Cringe.

I wish he'd cool it with the cross-dressing. And sometimes his lyrics make fun of the artist rather than the song. Other than that, I must admit, he is hardworking and good at what he does. - keycha1n

He used to do cool parodies but now he just turned into a parody himself. All he does is talk about the people he uses for his parodies.

He's funny but tries a BIT too hard. Especially with the cross dressing. - AlphaQ

16 HowToBasic

He is so disgusting that my stomach was hurting me while I'm watching his videos. He is a retarded guy who always makes disgusting things like throwing eggs and putting meat in the toilet. This guy deserves to be the worst YouTube channel than any other YouTuber I have seen in my life. He also destroyed his own Xbox 360 and peed on it. t his should close his channel. I don't want to see his channel appearing on YouTube AGAIN!

Despite the stupid content, I find myself enjoying the dumb stuff that he does in the videos. - kempokid

He's some naked guy who runs around and smashes eggs and creates huge messes. And takes craps. - Lunala

HowToBasic is an UNHELPFUL youtuber!

17 Shane Dawson

Ever since he came out the closet (even before that) everything that comes out his mouth are corny gay jokes and stupid gay sayings that have nothing to do with him or his lifestyle at all, he might as well get a shirt that says "cultural appropriation" and use it in all his videos, there's a difference between showing support and appreciation to a certain lifestyle or community and just being annoying, stupid and disrespectful.

And he tries way too hard with his jokes and corny thumbnails nowadays, that was funny in 2007 not now.

Shane shouldn't even be on this list.

Shouldn't be on this

He's not even that good.

18 Nicole Arbour Nicole Arbour Nicole Arbour is a Canadian actress, choreographer, comedian, dancer, singer, and YouTube personality. She is known for the video "Dear Fat People"

Her voice is annoying, her "jokes" make no sense and the only way she can get attention is to be controversial. - MKBeast

This JUST showed up? The abuser of one of my favorite YouTuber is deserving of the top 5 spot

She is an extreme racist

She makes really bad videos that offends a lot of people, she abused another YouTuber, which sucks

19 Fred Figglehorn Fred Figglehorn

Figglehorn is a dumb surname and is probably made up. - AlphaQ

Is he even relevant in 2016?

More like Dead

Fred stupidhorn man

20 Filthy Frank

He is hilarious. If you don't like him, just don't watch him. - scarmark

21 Jake Paul Jake Paul

How is he not at number one?


22 Jenna Marbles Jenna Marbles Jenna Nicole Mourey, better known by her pseudonym Jenna Marbles, is an American YouTube personality, vlogger, comedian, and actress.

One of the youtubers that isn't a giant pain in the butt.

In my opinion, she is really funny and relatable

Noo Jenna's queen

23 Stomedy

I don't understand why he makes fake videos

24 Markiplier Markiplier Mark Edward Fischbach (born June 28, 1989), known online as Markiplier, is an American YouTube personality. Originally from Honolulu, Hawaii, he began his career in Cincinnati, Ohio, and is currently based in Los Angeles, California.

Thank god he's on this list. He's the most immature, try hard man child on child, along with Pewdiepie. Every single time I see Mark on YouTube, on a thumbnail, or featured on a video, I immediately stick up my middle finger at my iPad. Not because I want to, my brain automatically thinks that. He pisses me off the way he got famous for his stupid humor. "Mark is nice and donates to charity, you have no reason to hate him" is what most of his fans are gonna think reading this. I don't care about his personality, he is one of my most hated people ever. I don't care that this will get tons of negative votes, and a hate reply. I'm just happy I shared my opinion that's anonymous. I hate him with all my might :D

I don't like him the I saw videos the aren't funny

Whoever votes for this guy your mom left you as a child and you are hideously deformed.

he's gay

25 IISuperwomanII

Usually uninformed, and her roast videos are downright atrocious and cringy. Not funny at all, and she always seems smug and stupid. Good combo for some people, I guess. Just goes to show you can gain millions of subscribers making god-awful skits and generalizations about people.

As PewDiePie has said,the definition of trying to hard

Ignore the first cringy comment. Why is she in this list

And yet you think its okay to call someone a 'hoebag'... smh at the other commenter (not at Superwoman)

26 Stampylonghead

His laugh is annoying, all he ever does is just play minecraft all day, and doesn't give it a break. Meanwhile half of his friends are child molesters

Why isn't he #1?

gay retard

He doesn't try too hard, did you run out of names at #38? He tries to provide fun content for little kids to watch. What the he** man?!

27 Zoella

Beauty and makeup videos are hardly entertaining to watch.

28 Smosh Smosh Smosh is an American sketch comedy YouTube channel created by Ian Andrew Hecox and Daniel Anthony Padilla. Anthony Padilla created a website called in 2002. He was later joined by his friend Ian Hecox.

Toilet humor used to be funny. Being sugar-high used to be funny. I've watched every single episode and, I didn't even crack a smile. I don't understand how people can find these guys funny.

I've never liked their humor. But its irrefutable that even to those who do, they try far too hard. - keycha1n

Ian and Anthony aren't even in like half their visa anymore. All they're doing now is promoting a MOVIE made after them. Seriously? Give Venturiantale a movie, not these idiots!

To be honest, I think they're back in the saddle without Anthony. Definitely gotten out some more videos that actually made me laugh. - naFrovivuS

31 Super Minecraft Kid

This kid is actually hilarious now that I know he's a troll - NikBrusk

He isn't funny, but he tried way too hard to be a troll.

32 Tobuscus

Childish and irritating nonsense...

Woah, do people still like this guy? 2011 man.

Surprised no one is taking about how he takes drugs...

After the rape allegations no one trusts him anymore. So yea, he does try too hard.

33 The Annoying Orange

Same with smosh, not funny anymore, and crappy CGI.

Annoying orange is trying it's best to be funny

38 JerBear

Do you all even know who jerbear is?

Well I wouldn't say he is a youtuber. he has 3000 subscribers, but considering he is friends with I hate everything and did a collab twice, that's his only "YouTuber" situation.

39 ethangamertv

He is an annoying little kid

40 fouseyTUBE
41 Sky Does Minecraft

I haven't seen a video yet where Sky does try too hard, yet I can't disagree. This might be true. Sky is a great guy overall but some things are a tiny bit over-done.

I don't hate sky, I extremely despise his immature 9 year old fans in a burning passion.

He's best known for his comedy videos, which have been viewed over 3 billion times. His channel was once the most subscribed on YouTube from 2009-2011, longer than any other channel, besides more.

Nigahiga tries too hard? He comes up with jokes midway through shooting and actually captures the problems with modern society perfectly. - naFrovivuS

Ryan is super funny, however sometimes he does come off as trying hard. Even if you are fan like I am, you have to agree that he really does sometimes try too hard.

He is actually just naturally funny, he doesn't even need to try

I love him - Puppytart
