Top Ten Best YouTube Comedians


The Top Ten

1 Nigahiga Nigahiga Ryan Higa, best known as his YouTube username nigahiga, is an American comedian, YouTube personality, and actor. 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.

Ryan is just ' awesome. He's absolutely hilarious. Ryan doesn't just make you laugh; he makes you practically cry with mirth. Every time I watch his videos, I have to keep pressing on the pause button or I won't hear what he's saying because I'm laughing so hard. Ryan doesn't use the same material in any of his videos and he's original as well. This guy should be number one on YouTube again.

Nigahihga is great! It's so funny I can't stop Laughing from their vids.

Ryan is more imaginative and creative. He uses himself in most of his videos. All RWJ does is use other things to make his humour. Although Ryan makes much less videos. Ryan deserves the top subbed spot.

Ryan is the funniest guy I have ever seen. He brought me so much joy when I was through so much pain. Thank you, Ryan. We love you!

2 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.

Smosh make whats easily the best comedy on all of youtube, and arguably the whole internet in my opinion

I love Smosh I've watched all their videos like a million times! I love them and I look forward to fridays just to see them! They are truly comedic geniuses!

Smosh deserves to be number one! Nigahiga I can understand but why is ray william johnson ahead of smosh! All he does is take a random internet video and make a bunch of penis jokes. Smosh is creative in their sketches. They never get old!

Those kinds of jokes aren't funny, they're just immature and rude, they only pollute our minds and make us act weird. - nelsonerica

My favorite video is Pokemon in real life I laughed my head off. - Drawbox

3 PewDiePie PewDiePie Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, better known by his online alias PewDiePie, is a Swedish web-based comedian video producer, and commentary channel. He is 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 60 more.

I think he is really amazing! He has a great sense of humor and he is just awesome without trying to. He always cheers me up with his videos and with his reactions. Can't understand why isn't he in the top 10.

Pewdie's more like rank of top 3 than top 10. Why? I'll tell you. He can cheer me up even on the worst days, though sometimes he can scare the crap out of me, I like it. Even being scared the crap out of, when he yells "BARRELS! ". I know some of you don't see yelling barrels scary, but when he randomly yells it, you might see why. He's just too good to be top 10 or top 5. Top 3 is where he should be.

Are you kidding? 28th? He is so funny when he plays videogames. The use of language and how he adds life to the game is awesome. He can be in the middle of screaming in terror from a monster in amnesia and then be like 'that as'. Its funny

How is Shane so funny? He's HORRIBLE and OFFENSIVE, he makes crude jokes that aren't even funny and all he talks about is sex, yet he cusses every minute and makes fun of certain tragedies, yet he makes those stupid "challenges" that don't entertain or gain one bit of laughs, What a stupid star, and he was the first dumb star on YouTube.

Shane Dawson and Smosh are the best YouTubers out, I can't believe they got all the way up here from nothing they are so funny and have turned my life around a lot, keep up the good work guys.

His older videos do a really great job of covering real issues, but making them lighter with a little bit of comedy. Somehow he manages not to just make fun of the serious topics while making them a whole ton easier to deal with. Great job!

He's the best and every1 should sub to him and Joey graceffa

5 RayWilliamJohnson

I think Ray William Johnson is easily the best comedian. He usually always picks out funny videos with his slight edits which are even more funny and also makes his video very entertaining. I don't know what to say about this guy... He's so amazing!

He tries his best not to be a hater of anything at all. And still makes people laugh. That is an incredible feat.

Ray makes the funniest videos on YouTube! Although Nigahiga is pretty cool too, but Ray has something new in ever video!

I LOVE collegehumor. I think that the people are SO funny. And everything they make fun of is so true in real life.

Too funny for you

7 Epic Rap Battles of History

They actually come out with great lyrics, take ideas from the people who comment, and put time into their videos. I think they're great.

I love their sound, lyrics, and I actually learn a bit. Spot on impersonations. Genius.

You know there lyrics make sense... hilarious!

This one is amazing

8 Tobuscus Tobuscus

Tobuscus is the best damn youtuber of all time. He releases completely original content, is absolutely hysterical. Whether you prefer watching him play games while running a ceaseless (and hilarious) commentary, watch his "Lazy Vlogs", about his daily life (Lazy Vlogs are actually FUNNY, unlike RWJ's! ) or his Tobuscus channel, where he releases animated shorts and Literal trailers, go look up Tobucus right now. You won't regret it.

WE SO DAMN AGREE! Toby is the BEST! We watch him every day, of course! He's a genius! D

Audience? What are you doing voting for me? That's precarious. Keep doing that! INTRO OF DARKNESS THEN REDNESS THEN WHITENESS! So. You were voting for me? Hothothothothot... Sorry! Ooh an airplane! Do do do do do do do do subscribe! OUTRO OF DARKNESS THEN REDNESS THEN WHITENESS! Then BOOP!

Too soon... - MickJames

Kids react + Teens react =Awesomeness. I love both series so much. Kids react is so cute and Teens react is more mature and funny and more jokes.

Why not in top ten kids react teens react and elders react are epic! - triggerhappy

The kids are actually pretty smart and have a way with words so do the teens.

10 Bo Burnham Bo Burnham Robert Pickering Burnham is an American comedian, musician, singer, songwriter, rapper, actor, and poet.

Bo Burnham is excellent! He may not be a youtube star anymore because he is a actual performing star now but he is the best. Hi is witty and you never know what is coming with him. He is so theatrical and unpredictable that he has ruined my ability to enjoy other comics, their not as original. Go Bo!

because he's Bo yo, he's the greatest rapper ever ever and weather think he's clever or not, you think you're better your not, don't need a sweater he's hot. - cahilljoe

One of the smartest people on the face of the earth! He's a genius and his songs are layered and prepared for those with an open mind, he's got amazing wit and he's a cool guy. Listen to Words, Words, Words, and if you understand half the jokes, you'll know, Bo is the greatest rapper ever.

The only comedian on the list

The Contenders

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

This girl is so funny. She has unique ideas about life and love and society and she expresses them in so-called "rant" videos that are hilarious. Her two purse dogs, Marbles and Kermit, add an adorable sense of comedy. She may just look like a big-boobed hot blonde, but she is HILARIOUS.

Jenna is more than funny. She's hilarious, and perfect in every way. She gives different point of views on real life situations that mostly happened to her, and can rant for the longest times. Her videos never cease to cheer me up!

Jenna is the best female YouTuber of all time. Jenna says what everyone is thinking. And her videos are never the same! One week she will rant about "girls at the airport" and then another week she'll do a hilarious sketchy sort of thing. I tune into her channel every Wednesday/Thursday.

Her rants are HALARIOUS! To make a GOOD rant you MUST have a TON of sarcasm and your VERY OWN reasons why you hate the person or thing you hate. You MUST NOT/NEVER follow the heard of people whom make lame rants like PewDiePie or leafyishere or someone like them. Onision is also a very good ranter in my opinion too. So is this one other guy (can’t remember his YouTube account name) on YouTube whom is not very popular unfortunately.

12 Tomska

TomSka is about as American as you can get. And he's British!

...why is he here at 188?

13 Hoiitsroi

They are actually wassabi productions. They are hilarious cause they acts! Roy acts as Rolanda and Alex acts as Richard and both himself. They always make my day. Not only are they funny, but they are also kind, helpful
, cute and handsome. They give challenges to themselves and their mission is to MAKE OTHERS LAUGH!

AWEOME they are asain like me they also do tons of challenges and you should watch rolanda and Richard


14 JonTron JonTron Jonathan Aryan "Jon" Jafari, best known by his internet pseudonym JonTron, is an American comedian, reviewer, and internet personality.

In my opinion, this is the funniest Youtuber of all time. Some of the other people on this list are funny, but nothing compared to JonTron.

First off, he makes good points about games he reviews. He isn't just completely random like some other people on thsi list, he actually tries to make sense.

Second, he is extremely funny. Just go see some of his reviews (particularly Bubsy Collection, Nightshade, Monster Party, and Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts) and you'll see what I mean.

Third, he is very much to the point with his videos. Despite his older videos (especially the first two), he tipically doesn't make his videos very long. He states what he finds wrong with what he's reviewing, makes it short, sweet, and to the point (often with hillarious results), and manages to make his videos extremely entertaining.

Now that JonTron is back from Game Grumps and making more content, I am more than excited for more future laughs. His next review should be in about 5 ...more

I'll agree with everything except the part about him always making sense. His humour is built around the incredible weirdness he writes. I do agree that he's the best - kempokid

When browsing this list, the thought that kept coming into my mind was, "are you kidding me? This person isn't funny at all". It's what I thought when I saw Pewdiepie on the list, it's what I thought when I saw RWJ on the top. Of all of these Youtubers, Jontron is the only one who I do find hilarious. He's just purely lovable, and his Nightshade video made me lose my mind with how good it was.

This guy is awesome! Unlike the others... *cough cough* Pewdiepie, Onision, and RWJ *cough cough*

Best YouTuber ever

15 Wassabi Productions

I LOVE these guys. There has never been a video they have post that didn't have me laughing so hard I couldn't breath. Especially the Makeup with Rolanda. I was watching those again earlier as I ate ramen and just as I put my ramen in my mouth, something hilarious happened and I nearly choked on my food. They need to be at least in the top ten because these guys are HILARIOUS.

Come on, they're reaching 2 million subscribers and are funny as hell, how are they not in the top 10?

These guys are actually really funny and they never sworn in any of them videos

Love them! Well... It's inly Alex now... 😭😭 Still an awesome channel. VERY child-friendly. Never heard a cuss word out of their mouth.

Penguinz0 is the funniest Guy on YouTube. He deserves so much more credit and now he's donating hid money. Great guy

I can't believe he isn't number one. I pass out laughing at everyone of his videos

10 times funnier than nigahiga, smosh and ray william johnson. Makes me piss my self every time I watch him.

Definitely the best YouTuber.

17 Mychonny

Mychonny is the best comedian out there! I cannot believe he isn't second (cause I know no one can beat nigahiga)! We need to vote him up! No one is as funny as this guy! And he has awesome accents (which are pretty nice too) and I'll bet he will make even funnier videos if he is picked #1! So vote!

Mychonny is so awesome! He makes the funniest faces ever just like an Asian mr Bean. I'm surprised people haven't voted for him either. He's an inspiration.

Mychoony is one of the funniest and my 2nd favorite comedians on youtube under Nigahiga. I am beyond shocked that he's this low on the list. Personally I think he's much better then Kevjumba who is pretty high up there and mychonny deserves that spot instead.

One of my favorite youtube channels - trainerd6

I have watched every morning for years.. They are a great combo of serious nerd info and uber goofy funny! I love that they have been friends with each other most of their lives and the true life stories include family life! It's a well rounded show

I absolutely love rhett and link... They are hilarious. I have watched all their videos and watch them every day the are part of my daily routine!

Lots of variety, hilarious, and family friendly. They feel like a part of our family.

GMM is the best

She's not hugely famous (Around 35 subscribers right now, but that's not bad for a tween), but she sure is hilarious for a 12-year-old. - ckShady

Oh my god this chick is funny as hell. She ain't afraid to be herself and when she does, it's really entertaining

Hilarious. So what if she's not even 13? For a kid, she's pretty damn funny. Mad props to Cal!

21 SeaNanners

Such a funny man gaming and his age is in his 30's why not disagree he is one of the best

How could he not be on the list!?! He's top ten at least!

22 JamesNintendoNerd

All of his videos make me laugh so hard, that I had to go to the hospital and had to replace my lungs.

23 jacksfilms jacksfilms

In my opinion this is one of the most underrated channels on YouTube. He is funny and he always comes up with original stuff in his videos. To be honest his channel is much better than some other top channels.

He is SO darn funny! He makes fun of Snuggies and poor internet grammar.

How is he not number 1. pewdiepie isn't even a comedy channel and they're number three. Neither is FBE their number nine! I still like these channels but THEY AREN'T COMEDY. HE'S COMEDY. - JakcO5

24 Epic Meal-Time
25 DashieXP

He's super funny. His Mortal Combat spoofs are hilarious. He deserves a lot more credit than he is given at the moment.

Dashiexp deserves more views than nigahiga, smosh, or raywilliamjohnson. He is mad funny.

Dashiexp is the funniest dude that I have ever watched he is truly amazing and to be honest with you I think that he should be #1

The only modaphaka to almost make me piss my pants

Nice Peter is hilarious! He also made the Epic Rap Battles of History.

28 Thelonelyisland
29 Sky Does Minecraft

I die of laughter in his videos

Most funniest person I know

Sky is either two things:
Overrated, or underrated.
It just depends on who you ask.

Personally, I think he's awesome, although he could swear less. :/

18?!?! What is this BULL?! You should be first!

30 MakeMeBad35

Makemebad35 is really Hilarious. He is a really nice person and I like how you can see the progression of his channel, and how when he is sad he shares his feelings. He always posts what the viewers want from him. He has been doing public trolling videos simple because of the fact that the viewers love them he always thinks of them and he is amazing. He is an original YouTube celeb and he should be closer toward #1 should be in the top 10

Love Damian he is so funny! And a really nice guy

He doesn't upload often but when he does, the wait is usually worth it.

I love when he is on Omegle, Public Trolling, or just doing a skit.

31 Sxephil

Funny and pretty interesting.. Also stuff phil likes is pretty funny and he does it every day

He is incredible and unbelievable. I have no favorite video of him. - brunothemusicmaster

He's informative and just so funny

32 Eddsworld
33 Kevjumba

He is the best comedian on YouTube. I just love watching his video. His videos are so funny and also interesting. He took many videos that are about life and other stuff, which I think is really great.

Because he's so AWESOME, also he has involved his ridiculously funny dad to his videos and definitely big respect to he Jumbafund, which is also great - not only the humor - earnt money goes to the right places!

Awesome. Please vote so he can be number one. He and his dad are the funniest people on youtube.

He should be way more high on this list. Especially over Pewdiepie. Kevin is one of the first YouTuber, and though his videos may not make you laugh as hard as Ryan's videos, Kevin is funny in his own unique way. I definitely think he's second best in my opinion over Smosh.

His songs are just hillarious

If you haven't heard of him, go watch his callout on Jacob Sartorius. - ThePwoperMuser101

48 How It Should Have Ended

Funny take on movies. Love it.

49 smpfilms

He at one point was the #12 channel on YouTube, by far the most hilarious, and the most actual satisfying YouTube Comedian, and its all in a pointless theme, like eating mac and cheese, preparing food and eating outside, but its deeper then that even. Everyone will love him.

He at one point was #14 on YouTube, probably even top 10 for all I know. He only has 600k subs. 600K! He makes the funniest comedy videos and just... He needs at least 1 mill. I have been watching this guy for over 5 years, and Its safe to say that no one, not even Ryan Higa, is better than this guy. (Also he is the best father! )
