Brands & Organizations

YouTube Comedian

Comedy isn’t just for smoky clubs or HBO specials anymore. In fact, many of the best comedians are on YouTube, posting videos that range from screwball songs and satirical sketches to sarcastic product reviews and impeccable impersonations. With the freedom to try out material, interact with fans, and collaborate with other creators, YouTube is the perfect platform for comedy, and these comedians were our favorites this year.

If you’re a brand looking for recognition for your use of YouTube, enter the Best on YouTube Shorty Award.
