About Rudy Mancuso

Rudy Mancuso is a real double threat, bringing his undeniable talent to both comedy and music. Posting hilarious skits that often feature his fellow YouTubers at Shots Studios, he gained a remarkable 2.5M+ subscribers in 2017, ending the year with nearly 4M total. Plus, another 665K+ fans tune into his Awkward Puppets channel, where Rudy (in puppet form) conducts hysterical interviews with guests like Floyd Mayweather and Hailee Steinfeld. His musical talents—also featured on his main account—earned him a spot opening up for Justin Bieber during three dates on his Purpose World Tour in Brazil. The multitalented Rudy even got to walk the runway in 2017, debuting Dolce and Gabbana's new Summer/Spring 2018 clothing lines in Milan in June.
