About Jack Douglass

Comedian Jack Douglass admits, “I like to make fun of everything because I'm too scared to confront reality.” Well, in reality, he added over 1M subscribers on YouTube in 2017, many of whom he interacts with through his YIAY series (which stands for “Yesterday I Asked You”), where he and his fans together find hilarious answers to his questions. He also went viral in May with the video, “PRO FIDGET SPINNER TRICKS (very cool),” racking up over 12M views to date. In it, he parodies the endless stream of YouTube bros showing off their skills, though he’s willing to send up any fad with a cynicism so precise it cuts right to the ridiculous core. Whether it’s vlogging, reaction videos, or The Emoji Movie, nothing is safe from Jack’s sarcastic scorn.
