About Julius Dein

YouTuber Julius Dein is pure magic. That is to say, he’s an actual magician, often posting videos pranking people with his illusions. Whether he’s playing tricks on his grandma, strangers on the street, or fellow YouTubers, the Londoner always has the last laugh. He usually has the first laugh, too—in fact, he laughs all the time. That makes his vlogs infectiously fun, even before his impressive magic skills come out. The world traveler found himself across the pond, visiting Los Angeles, New York, Miami, and Hawaii this year and meeting up with the Team 10 crew in the process. Julius more than doubled his YouTube subscribers in 2017, with his antics helping him end the year at 465K.
