About Nathan Zed

With a fast-paced style that sends up everything from politics to pop culture to personal experience, Nathan Zed takes to his YouTube channel to post thoughtful, funny videos that often seem like he’s simply talking through his hysterical stream of consciousness. Even though he started the year wanting to “Bring it in 2016,” he found himself appalled at some of the year’s ridiculous trends, satirizing things like fake news with his “PROOF that Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer” and providing a tongue-in-cheek movie review of this year’s Batman v Superman. The college student’s strong and scathing opinions have helped him build up over 400K subscribers and 18M+ views.
