About Gus Johnson

Gus Johnson has been on his YouTube grind for years, uploading his first video eight years ago. Something must have clicked for the comedy vet, who had his biggest year to date, growing his subscriber count by nearly 500K over the course of 2018. Now with 790K+, a number that is rising fast, even more people are enjoying the light hearted comedy Gus brings his fans. Gus packs his comedy tight as his videos often only last around one minute, and he continues to impress the internet, finding new sources of inspiration to draw upon to keep making his fans laugh.
