Top 10 Best YouTube Channels of All Time
If you're talking about pre-2013, Smosh was one of the best and most entertaining YouTubers you could find. Their content was really well-handled and the comedy was very well done, all of which was further bettered by Ian and Anthony's chemistry with one another.
Then, Smosh took a nosedive in quality. At this point, they're a shell of their former self, which is a big shame. Keep in mind, it was Smosh that got me into YouTube in the first place.
Despite not being good anymore, I still appreciate Smosh for the moments that they made during their peak years.
I've watched Smosh for about 8-9 years now, I cannot believe it's been that long to be honest. These guys basically do the things I've always wanted to do by making short movies and skits with friends. But I've gotten too busy in life and have had many friends get married or move off to college to try and begin now. So it's fun living vicariously through this dynamic duo known as Smosh. Their videos have given me plenty of good laughs and it's fun seeing their success take off over the years
I love smosh! I have to say, they don't get the popularity and respect they deserve. Ian can always make me laugh, and Anthony is so awesome! Every video of their's is crazy, and funny. I've checked out other channels like Nigahiga, Fred, Annoyingorange, etc. I guess they're all funny in their own way, but if you want to sit on the computer for hours watching the most hilarious videos, go to smosh's channel!
In my opinion, Smosh is the funniest channel on YouTube. Neither Ian nor Anthony uses an accent while they play games, nor do they say random things constantly. They make sketches that are truly original and funny. If this were my list, I would make Smosh as number 1, because they are creative and truly funny. And if you don't like their main channel, they have about 3+ others that you could watch.
I can believe how unbelievably popular this guy's channel is. Honestly I'm shocked, but as a gamer I like his channel a lot. I'm big into the horror genre and it's always cool getting to see all the new horror games he plays. This guy is shaping the gaming industry, game developers actually take note to this guy and it shows because the horror genre is exploding out of nowhere in popularity and games are becoming more tailored to what the people want. I joined his channel at about 4 million subscribers... I remember I spent a year off YouTube and when I came back he had 30million... For a guy who's only two years older than me I've got to say I commend this guy. He's just a normal guy doing what he loves, and now that he's in the spotlight he's under a lot of pressure and I do believe people that make negative comments about him should back off. Felix is a great guy with his charity work and he made his success doing the things he's passionate about. I enjoy watching his channel ...more
Many people don't like him. Nothing wrong with that. But the reason why I like him is because he's not full of himself, he doesn't get offended by people's opinions of him, he doesn't expect people to like him, and in one of his videos he said "If someone's being an ass online, just ignore them." These are signs of a good person online.
I think that people connect with other certain people. However, a lot of people seem to connect with Pewdiepie. It is obvious that he cares about the people who watch him. He definitely makes a lot of people laugh. I see how people think that he is annoying though, but he sees that too.
I love Pewdie! He's truly funny and creative. He interacts with objects in the games he plays and the audience. I feel like I'm closwe friends with him because he's so funny and kind and silly. And he plays game with his girlfriend and they are so adorable. Pewdiepie usually plays a lot of horror, but it mostly has jumpscares. His reaction are hilarious. I laugh more than I scream when I watch his videos.
He is the BEST comedian on YouTube I've ever watched. His videos are so unique and original and they stay that way. Plus, his content is safe for younger audiences unlike other overrated comedians whose videos could practically be rated R.
He's a GENIUS comedian whose videos and skits are well-written and original and he's funny without even trying. One of my favorite videos of his is "Proving the Illuminati is Real". If you haven't watched it yet, I suggest you do because your mind will be blown. He doesn't let his fame get to his head too. He even has songs of his own and so far, I love "Ignored" the most, which is a song about Clash of Clans and how his friends would always ignore him, hence the title. I wish he could've been #1 though.
Lets put it this way, YouTube has 3 layers. The first takes up 95% of YouTube and is very bad or not very mentionable. The second is full of uprising and genuinly good YouTubers. The third is full of people who are liked not for their content, but for their personality, looks, or from something unique regardless if it's good or not. People don't want good content it seems, they just want the toy channels, the edgy hair dye, and the amount of enthusiasm that it almost makes you forget that they are not funny nor are they good at basic logic.
Nigahiga is a dislodged piece of the 2nd layer that manged to get to the top. And he's an amazing piece of the 2nd layer and one of the first YouTubers to go viral. I really hope he beats SMOSH in subscribers, and he does has the power to do so.
This guy is HILARIOUS. He's always finding a new way to make me laugh or cry. He's a mastermind with puns and probably one of the best editors I've ever seen! This guy was BORN funny and just waiting a week for a new video is stressing me out! Can't believe Pewdiepie has way more subscribers considering all he does is horror games and rants these days. Nigahiga makes every single one of his videos creative and funny and not one has made me fail too laugh.
People don't understand how hard Ryan works. Unlike gaming channels or vlog channels Ryan actually makes skits. They're good too! Ryan has to think of script with jokes unlike those who just rant about things and their personality and subject just makes the video funny and interesting. He gets costumes for his trailers and adds the effects too. He puts lots of time into his videos and I'm glad that is recognized.
Yo guys they rarely are on their YouTube channel -_- and they don't react to the videos and if they did there YouTube channel would be dead. Plus all the content is from other creators. And they wanted to copyright the word react so if you put react in a book video movie etc, they would sue you. They are like some of the most cancer you tubers ever
I remember this channel before the whole controversy fiasco and I can honestly say it was one of the more entertaining channel on the platform. But this position on the list is way to nice for them.
Anyone who watches their channel and finds them entertaining. Well, I have some news for you, you guys don't have a sense of entertainment.
Funny, his reaction videos are a bit educational, he knows every internet trend, and he reminds me of the Impractical Jokers. Awesome.
Ray has a show on YouTube, about viral videos on YouTube. YouTuber of the century, and you can't be #1 without having haters. And I don't mean to be rude or mean, but Ray had a lot of haters and he knew how to deal with them.
Funny little midget he's hilarious I love his videos and I love the way he edits his videos to add to his comedy funny guy!
READ ME NOW! Look up my life as ever channel
It's so good she has a song and a new serious of episodes that are so good called 'how I survived highschool' It's SO GOOD!
Should Be #1. Period. I watched NigaHiga, never laughed once. Every thing that Ray William Johnson says makes me laugh.
This is definitely one of my favorite channels. I enjoy their content and the effort the writers put into the raps. Also, the soundtrack for the Stan Lee vs. Jim Henson battle is nothing to sneeze at.
It takes weeks to make a video for these guys. They have to have a private studio to film in, and actually make catchy raps with good, clever lyrics. Nicepeter and epiclloyd work way harder than the rest of these guys
Sadly, this, smosh, and the other entertainers were killed by the gaming generation. (Markiplier, jacksepticeye, pewdiepie).
THE most original content on YouTube, and exponentially educational. I've learned so much from it!
He does Let's Plays on all of the best games out there. I always enjoy watching him play, and, he even cracks some clever jokes during the ride. However, LuckysevenDX is also a great Let's Player.
I definitely know chuggaaconroy. I watched his Let's Plays about Super Mario Sunshine back in 2009 and that, my friend brought me into the world of YouTube gaming. Thanks Chuggaa.
He honestly should be the most subscribed channel on YouTube because he's actually laugh out loud funny, I'm looking at you PewDiePie.
He does lets plays and I love his moments in his LP's like in pikemen he had this pikmin and he named him Steve no one liked hi later he Became a trooper like he was sacrificing his life in the middle of the night to kill a fire breathing pig?!?!?!
He's so funny and has a sense of humor. I can understand if you don't like him, because he's inapropiate with his characters in way that's not for kids under 14, but actually I'm a little like that in real-life as a person in high school (even before I saw any of his videos). Overall he has some of the best characters like; Shanaynay, Aunt Hilda, Paris Hilton, Ned the Nerd, S-Deezy, Shane's mom, and many more. Don't forget his Charlie Brown videos where he does his school life jokes, with Aunt Hilda as the teacher and the typical girl Amy. Also he has funny ideas for questions are really cool. Overall he has one of the best channels for many reasons.
Shane... What can I say? He is my role model. I love Shane so much and I will never stop supporting him. He is the sweetest, funniest, and overall best YouTuber out there. I love many YouTube channels and YouTubers, but Shane is just different for me. He's made more of an impact on my life. His videos of hilarious, crude, dark, and clever humor have helped me during some of the most difficult times in my life. Shane is an amazing YouTuber and deserves everything amazing that happens to him.
Shane is the uncrowed king of YouTube. He does more than any youtuber on the platform. Ok, okay he has very lazy content now-a-days, BUT he does podcasts, books, short films, pitched show ideas, made music, and he made a successful movie. Please tell me the YouTuber that does or has done all that with the acception of Shay Carl? I'll wait. The answer is none. Tyler Oakley, Onision and Dan and Phil come pretty close, but not close enough. Shane is to YouTube as SpongeBob is to Nickelodeon, Mickey Mouse is to Disney, & Ghostface is to Scream & a messed up version is to Scary Movie. Not everyone likes him, he's been through controversy, many don't understand him, okay no one does, but you can't deny he is the success he is.
I love how Shane Dawson is just always there for us, and understands what many of us have been through. I think that he is the most hilarious person in the world, but he can show deep emotions when those times are tough. He can influence me so deeply; when he's crying, I'm crying, if he's smiling and laughing, I join in the fun and laugh as well.
Watch Mojo deserves at least Bronze - top 10 for certain amazing picks yearly so far with a great catalogue and presentation skills to make the videos fun to follow and compare.
Why is this on the best? This channel is horrible. They do lazy research on their lists and just state their stupid bias opinions. And they sound like a bunch of wise guys. They do this channel for money.
They call Mortal Combat, Final Fantasy, Star Fox and Metriod bad games. They probably haven't even played those games before and they also didn't even do any research for that horrible list.
Most people may not agree with their Top 10 lists, but many fail to realize that they go by the factual data instead of opinions. For example, if they make a Top 10 Best Kendrick Lamar songs list, they go by how popular each song is, not by how good it really sounds.
WatchMojo is the best YouTube channel I have seen..The way they create the videos are interesting - adding up all the things in right proportion. Every time I watches a video, it makes me craving for more. Like a drug. I love giving suggestions and votes to some videos.It's all people's choice videos without omitting any of their favourites.
Toby is creative and original. He makes it so everyone can watch his videos without sitting through a cussing fit. His music videos are great and he keeps great timing with uploading videos. He is nice to his fans and when he is in public does what small thing they want from him. He is funny and brilliant in his humor. Do subscribe!
To be able to make a video every day and keep a high level of energy enough to talk through the whole thing... and without being inappropriate (unless if he implies something bad, which is all the more funny) that takes skill. But I do think he's kind of limiting himself... seriously, I've seen more third graders curse.
Toby's videos are pure genius. He doesn't use awful cuss words like a lot of you tubers so you can be very young and his videos are still appropriate. He writes great songs, has funny rants, makes random vlogs, and has silly videos of himself playing video games. Toby is amazing and deserves to be higher on the list.
What on Earth is Tobuscus doing as number 25?! Tobuscus is creative and funny. He's appealing to his audience WITHOUT being over-the-top inappropriate, which is PURE creativity, which is something many YouTubers are lacking nowadays. In other words, not only is Tobu naturally funny, but he also shows his humor in intelligent ways. :). SUBSCRIBE to him!
I recently just got into Markiplier and I don't know where I was! This guy's great! One of the kindest and genourous, yet most original youtubers I have ever seen (just watch a heist with Markiplier). Definitely my favourite youtuber. His fans have a special connection to him as if they were his friends that never met. I can't say how great he is. My only negative is the fact that his swearing is inconsistent. Some videos kids would be allowed to watch but some would have too much profanity. But that's only a small blip.
This is really just my personal opinion. I vote for him to be no. #1 because he has changed my own personal life, so I guess that makes this a little bias. It's just that, he really has! He was always the go-to for me when I was down; he cures my depression. Sorry to make this personal, but I just really love this guy for that!
First of all, I don't even KNOW why half of the people higher than Mark are in the top 20. I haven't heard of half of them!
Second, Mark has a hard earned number of subscribers. He should be MUCH higher than some of these cash-grabbers.
Third, he's a great guy who does hilarious things, as well as some pretty heartwarming and thoughtful things.
Finally, he has a large variety of games on his channel. He should be pretty high up!
(Also, if I see a VeVo on this list, I'm gonna MURDER somebody. Probably Billy, from JSE's channel. )
Markiplier is the best! Every video is amazing, you will laugh with him, you will cry with him, and if you can sit through the first episode you ever watch, there's a good chance you will never stop coming back for more.
He should at least be in the top ten. Him, AmazingPhil and danisnotonfire are my favourite YouTubers.
Jack might swear, he might be loud, he might make bad jokes, but that's what we like about him. He has a huge heart, and always gets us fans involved. He's funny, he's cute, and he has GREEN hair. I love green hair!
People, he has 9 million subscribers, and he is better than Shane Dawson I just have to say.
Of the 3 I like to call them "YouTube gods" (Mark, Pewdiepie, Jack) I find jacksepticeye to be the only tolerable one. Simply because he's amassed 10 million, and is actually funny and interesting, I concider him to be the winner of YouTube. Though he's not my personal favourite, I feel like I'm watching a person; not a character. It's something very few can pull off.
I'm genuinely surprised that this guy isn't higher up, given his mass popularity. Not only is he known to be the most energetic gamer of all, he is also the most interactive with the gaming community, from what I have gotten from others. Game devs themselves have been known to reach out to him!
The most funniest, adorable and kindest youtuber I've ever seen!
You remember when there's Logan Paul cases. When everyone blame him and youtube for what he did, Jacksepticeye do the different thing. He encourage people that have depression and want to suciede to not to do that. That's how kind jaxksepticeye is. He make us see what we actually should see than just see the black side. He's the best youtuber I've ever seen
If there is only one YouTube channel I could ever watch for the rest of my life, it has to be this. Anybody who says otherwise must either have never heard of him, or just does not like him. Because if you have heard of him, you must hate him because you think he's annoying, or you absolutely love his sense of humor. One of my favorite channels in existence.
He is genius and I love him. He should be number 1 and he is the most creative man of all time. His videos funny and amazing I always watch his videos on YouTube and all of the are amazing and good and the best video on YouTube ever
I'm fine with him not being number one but I have a problem with him being below overrated garbage like Poodiepie, Smosh, GaywilliamJohnson, And the Cancer of YouTube Shane dawson. This guy deservers all of their subscribers COMBINED.
The inception of many retro game review shows today. While most aren't that good, I've always liked James from the beginning.
I couldn't find FiveWhoFans, probably not popular enough at only 13k, but JonTron comes in a close second! He's absolutely hilarious! The perfect blend of adult and childish humor. His jokes are really clever, and he has great editing and writing skills!
He never ever ever has one bad video. All of them are entertaining, he's a savior of the internet.
This comedic lord is under Annoying Orange? What a sin.
Deserves to be at the top. Unlike most of the top ten.
Vsauce is one of the best channels indisputably. It's educational and brainy, but not dorky and strange. It has just the famous typical YouTuber feel, but teaches you all sorts of things. It's an amazing channel. His older content was more a crazy fact, almost Ripley's Believe it or Not, kinda vibe. Now it's more philosophy and a bit more nerdy. His new contnet is nerdy, his older content is geeky. I love Vsauce.
No one on the first decade of YouTube has made such weirdly and cleverly crafted content and got as big as Vsauce. He is the biggest influencer on YouTube, inspiring many World Channels today (Reallifelore, Infographics Show etc). With an immense interest in our Universe, Vsauce delivered the most interesting content we have seen on YouTube. Although he now focuses on YouTube Originals, Michael is still one of the most known YouTubers out there, his videos are still being watched constantly today!
Vsauce will go down in history as one of the most Clever, Influential, Mind Boggling and Funny YouTubers ever...
Vsauce is the greatest YouTube channel, in my opinion, not because It's funny or creative, but for It's ingenuity and because you walk away from every video knowing a little more about this fascinating world we live in. Vsauce gives us the answers to questions we don't know we had and helps us understand things we didn't know we wanted to know.
Vsauce is curiosity answered by an awesome beard.
This channel makes me question my existence while other channels want to make me cringe. I just wish Vsauce's upload rates were higher, but I understand they take lots of work. I learn something new everyday by watching any video of his.
I know he puts in work into his parodies, but I just don't like him. He can be rude to the celebrities in his parodies, and even though he says he actually does like the artist, it's just rude.
Sorry to him and his fans, I don't mean any offense.
He puts a lot of hard work and effort into every parody and most of them are hilarious. He's really funny and energetic and you can tell he really puts a lot into every video he makes. Subscribe!
Bart Baker is one of my favorite YouTube channels. His parodies are amazing. But their inappropriate so kids please don't watch him.
He's immature and his parodies aren't really that funny anymore. I find Barely Productions to be more entertaining.
I know it may sound cliche, but Roosterteeth has really changed my life. I was going through a really tough time (moving from one state to another in the middle of 8th grade) when I stumbled across their channel, and they're honestly one of the few channels that are always improving and coming out with new material. My personal favorite videos of theirs are Rage Quits and the podcasts, which are always hilarious.
These people have taken YouTube & brought to it some amazing animated series that are actually even better than most of the stuff on normal T.V.. "Red vs. Blue" is one of the most popular web series ever created, taking Halo characters & creating an amazingly well-written & ridiculously hilarious story. "RWBY" has an amazing story with great characters & fight scenes that can only be described as pure awesomeness. And their animated podcast clips are just plain hilarious. Even the people behind it all are so distinct & memorable when we actually see them that I've memorized at least 75% of them. Rooster Teeth is the greatest YouTube channel ever. Of all time.
This company practically raised me. Roosterteeth has been a really important part of my life for five years now and there has been not a single project of theirs I've tried that I have not immensely enjoyed. Whether it be T.V. shows, let's play series, or even just a podcast, you can be sure they'll always deliver, on humour especially. They're one of the awesomest content creator companies out there and I have faith that we have yet to see many great things coming from them in future, so give them a try if you haven't yet. You'll be surprised at what you find!
It is honestly the best channel ever and I can't get enough of anything I watch. You can dislike this I really don't care but as long as I live I will ALWAYS love Roosterteeth. So there is my personal opinion. And another thing Roosterteeth changed my life, they got me through very tough times, I just wish I could do the same for them. ROOSTERTEETH RULES!
After learning about Eddsworld my life became so much more better. I make an effort to watch Eddsworld everyday, which can be hard because of school and homework. Whenever I'm feeling blue and need urgent cheering up, and even when life is pretty swell, Edd's beautiful animations and awesome sense of humor cracks me up. Rest in peace my friend, and I hope It's Pretty Swell in heaven too.
Finally! A good animator who puts effort into his videos, and doesn't rely on African-American stereotypes, swearing, and sex jokes to make idiots laugh!
It may not seem that great at first, but when you get to know the show better, it really grows on you. Edd, Tom, Matt and (formerly) Tord are BRILLIANT!
I just discovered Eddsworld this year. Wish I would have known about it sooner instead of voting for Guava Juice 3am.
Their main channel may be neglected, but every video there has taken great effort and time to entertain you to the fullest.
Their second channel, Good Mythical Morning, is the best talk show existing on YouTube and one of the most subscribed to with almost 10 million subs and about 6 million views each week.
Nothing beats these clean, funny, comedy duo!
Rhett & Link and Vsauce at 14th and 15th, even though they aren't at the top, back to back is where they belong because they're the most entertaining in my opinion. Rhett & Link make really funny and catchy songs that I just love, while VSauce is extremely interesting when I wanna learn more about the world. It's like comparing apples to organs, and unfortunately you can't vote twice in the same session so I just picked one. But both of 'em are my favorites!
They should be much higher up! These guys are hilarious and SO creative and hardworking, and never disappoint. They always put so much thought into their work and their community and they're genuine and cool guys. I hope I can be as close to my lifetime best friend as they are to each other.
Proud Mythical Beast right here!
Rhett and Link are the best! Their cleanness (is that a word) helps put a ton of appeal to their videos, and they are very funny. Good Mythical Morning can get a tad boring at times, but the Rhett and Link channel itself is awesome. Love their original music videos and skits.
I only like Death Battle from ScrewAttack. I don't like the other things they do. But Death Battle alone is so good, that I have to vote for them
You know what I hate? ScrewAttack! being low on this list! Here's why! Because ScrewAttack! is one of the best YouTube channels ever and is better than Anime America Podcast by a long shot!
Everyone like screw attack except for evil Craig.
They created great death battles.
He's funny and random and spirited and cute and has a British accent. That by itself would guarantee him popularity, but there's so much more to him. He genuinely cares about things, and is one of the most appreciative YouTubers out there (I, as a YouTube fangirl, would know). Him and Phil have done so much and still keep doing amazing stuff. Especially with the #NicerInternet campaign, Dan has become an icon of strength against cyber bullying and negativity, and I couldn't have thought of a better one, ever.
There is a little bit of all of us in Dan. He is just an anti-social, pessimistic gamer who makes a variety of different things. He vlogs and makes skits. Dan is one big meme who is just so funny. He is at his prime when he is with Phil (AmazingPhil), and together they just have this one big bromance that is infectious to watch. He is geeky and proud. I just love Dan. (I have watched so much of him, I sometimes break out in a British accent). Also, he is pretty hot. Wait, who said that?
As my friend who got me to watch the "Phil Is Not On Fire" videos ( I thought it would be like all the other YouTubers, most of which I am not fond of. ) told me that they were "awesome and funny and nerdy and awkward and adorable and have super awesome hair." So I watch it and I nearly died laughing. I love Dan and Phil both so much! Phangirl for life.
Dan and Phil are amazing, both of them. Yes, this one is on Dan's thing, but I'll tell you why I love Dan and Phil. Honestly, they're geeky, and that's a good thing. They make me laugh as well with their witty senses of humor. The Phandom is really kind and supportive, though they do put a lot of weird comments like 'PROTIP'. Let's not forget, Dan is HAWT. Phil is adorable, don't get me wrong, but Dan has the edge over him. Phan is love Phan is life.
Used to be my favourite youtuber of all time, but lately his content is a former shell of what it once was and is lacking the quality of his previous videos. I'm sorry, I'm not trying to hate on him but the incident involving Projared seems to have taken an obvious toll on his subscriber count and I don't think that he was able to recover from it. It was a sad day that I had to unsubscribe but there are many better youtubers out there now.
He is one of the funniest gamers out there, and even manages to make entertaining let's plays. That is a feat that is yet to be matched by nearly anyone else.
Incredibly underrated and my personal favourite channel. Should definitely be in the top 50.
He may be small but he's better then pewd and that's for sure! His Hey you, PIKACHU! Video is hilarious and his hardcore series on his gameplay channel is amazing
Tyler Oakley is the Queen! He should be in the top ten. Why is he so far down? He is hilarious and his videos will just make anyone's day.
He's amazingly adorable. He makes me laugh when I'm sad. Love his personality. Wish he was straight cause I would tap that.
The absolute WORST! The fact he literally said it's racist to black men as attractive proves this. Liberal piece of shut.
He is the queen of youtube! if you feel down just search up "tyler oakley" on youtube and boom!
I made a top 10 best Youtube channels list, and I immediately put IHE at number 1. He is better than all of the other review channels, including Nostalgia Critic and his idol, JohnTron. He is the funniest channel on this site, for a channel that you wouldn't think would be that funny. I can't wait for him to reach 2,000,000 subs. We all love your content, Alex.
Now before most of you go "oh this guy sounds too angry for my taste," he's actually a really calm and honest guy who has constructive criticisms and great views on things. He's definitely worth checking out.
I like this guy. He is very opinionated, honest and chill. He makes good rants and reviews as well and he is a great critic. I also love his voice for some reason.
He has a right to hate furries.
As someone who finds (Modern) Sonic to be a mixed bag (I mean the character and the franchise), I feel like IHE makes good points on why he hates Sonic the Hedgehog. hat sorta included Classic Sonic, which is why James the Sonic Fan Boy existed.
"If you don't like it, screw you! " if you like it screw you. I was just being sarcastic, but still, leave people's opinions alone to whether they like it or not. I used to like it, but I don't watch it anymore.
He makes me laugh on a bad day. Only probably is videos take time to wait, so subscribe to him!
SuperMarioLogan and TheLegendOfJohnnyAlbert are on here but not SuperMarioRichie. Someone please add SuperMarioRichie on this list so they can be even.
Not what you'd expect from a Mario plush channel, but great nonetheless.
