About Andrew Lowe

In six years on YouTube, 19-year-old Andrew Lowe has racked up 600K+ subscribers and over 39M views on his self-titled channel, with no signs of stopping. Moving out of the house (of his regularly featured and recently married “gay moms”) from St. Louis to LA, he celebrates his independence with the goofy and wonderful music video “I Live Alone.” A big fan of food, he has expanded on his Holiday Cooking with Andrew series to bring on other YouTuber guests like Jenn McAllister and Ricky Dillon, who face off in his video “Cut Into Small Pieces,” which he assures is “not related to Chopped.” Frenetic, fun, and fantastic at lip-syncing, Andrew went on the road this year with the Drop the Mic tour, battling other YouTubers for lip-syncing supremacy.
