About Thomas Sanders

One of the foremost stars of all time on Vine, Thomas Sanders took his hysterical 6-second videos and expanded the content for his new life on YouTube, with an already-impressive 1.5M subscribers. Besides his popular Vine compilations, he regularly posts comedic vlogs about things like “My True Identity!” and “Going on Tour!” as well as this year’s “The End of Vine.” But his funniest moments often come during his collaborations with other YouTube stars like Brizzy Voices, Lilly Singh, and Gabe Erwin, often inciting ridiculous challenges like dancing to random songs or signing your name with your non-dominant hand. With his quick-witted videos, Thomas is quickly becoming as popular on YouTube as he was on Vine.
