Who Is Joe Sugg?
He is in his early twenties.. He was originally from Wiltshire and he now lives in London.
Is he any good?
Yup. The core audience for the vloggers are teenage and tween girls and whatever it is that they like Joe has in spades. He is as cute as a button, he is very funny, he can be very silly and he is about as connected as you can get…
Connected? Whatever Can You mean? Is he in the Mafia?
Yes – he’s a enforcer for the Gambino family.
Actually he is Zoella Sugg’s sister and Caspar Lee’s Flatmate.
Zoella Sugg is currently the most popular UK non gaming vlogger. Her popularity is primarily down to her being so likeable – but she is also very connected. She is sort of Queen of the Vloggers – there aren’t many of the most popular vloggers with whom she doesn’t have some sort of connection or relationship. You can read more about that in this article.
And Casper Lee?
Caspar is a London born, South Africa raised, vlogger who recently moved back to London. Out of all the most popular vloggers Caspar is probably the weirdest and out of the group surrounding Zoella he is the only vlogger that has anything you might describe as “edge” in his vlogging style.
He and Joe share a flat and vlog together regularly (collectively as Jaspar) and in part because of that, and in part because Caspar can be very entertaining, their rise in popularity over the last few months has been meteoric.
So his popularity is down to other people?
No – not at all. Joe is adored by his fans and it is easy to see why? He is absurdly good looking and he can be very funny. Also a lot of his content is quite original. A lot vloggers tend to recycle ideas for their content. Joe (and Caspar) tend to come up with their own ideas
ThatcherJoe – that’s an odd name?
Indeed it is – but there is a good reason for it because he is, or was, a trainee roof thatcher. This film on his second channel is all about that
His second channel?
Yes – like most vloggers Joe has a second channel which contains outtakes and bloopers and random stuff like the thatching film (which is our favourite film on his channel btw). He also sometimes runs a daily vlog on this channel.
Daily Vlog? What’s That?
Daily vlogging is keeping a daily video diary of your life. There a few vloggers who vlog every single day of their life – but most just run daily vlogs for short periods such as Xmas or when they are at one of the many YouTube conferences/meets ups that the vloggers regularly attend.
