The 5 Best Comedy Channels on YouTube

/ Oct 20, 2013


Now that comedy week at VideoInk is coming to a close, we thought that you’d enjoy some of our picks for YouTube’s greatest comedians. It’s not about views here, it’s about pure, unfiltered comedic talent.

Like some kind of blue methamphetamine that ends up causing a ton of problems, these five funny people are the real deal. We’ve selected the top categories of comedy, which should give you a solid range of content to pick from. Whether you’re in the mood for pranks or skit, we’ve got you covered.

Best Prankster: Rémi Gaillard

Rémi Gaillard has a complicated relationship with YouTube. The online personality uploads to YouTube pretty inconsistently. But when he does, oh boy, things figuratively (sometimes literally) blow up. Gaillard is most well-known for his Mario Kart in real life prank, which — as the name suggests — placed Gaillard behind the wheel of a go-kart dressed as video game touchstone Mario. It may be the greatest prank in the world while simultaneously being the most dangerous prank in the world. This guy is a legend.

Best Musical Comedians: The Gregory Brothers

Not only are The Gregory Brothers insanely talented at auto-tuning viral hits like the smash hit “Bed Intruder Song,” this quartet — including one Gregory “sister” — are prolific musicians as well. Almost every single this group puts out racks up YouTube views faster than Jenna Marbles trying on swimwear. In 2011, The Gregory Brothers were also asked to auto-tune clips from movies that year at the 83rd Academy Awards. From YouTube to the Oscars — not bad at all.

Best Sketch Comedian: 5-Second Films

5-Second Films’ (5SF) brilliance resides within the amazing set up to almost every one of their skits. With only five seconds to work with, you have to have an incredible sense of comedic timing. Luckily, the genius folks at 5SF have got it down pat. 5SF have been featured on a plethora of shows and channels, including “Attack of the Show,” CNN, and “Tosh.0.” They’ve also had guest appearance from amazing comedy figures like Patton Oswalt and “Weird Al” Yankovic.
