I don't know if it's the secret feminist in me speaking but most of my favourite 'YouTubers' are female! I think my inclination towards this is my brain's natural defense mechanism to slapstick humour. The people I have chosen on this list are - witty, insanely talented, intelligent and most importantly very funny! They've managed to hold a good balance between being funny and making an actual point! I love them and I hope you do too!
Jenna Marbles - Boasting a total of 11 million subscribers, The 25 year old California based comedian needs no introduction! Jenna's videos are mostly comical vlogs and exaggerated skits. Unlike most young females in their 20s, the gorgeous Boston University alum isn't afraid to "ugly it out!". She's sarcastic, vulgar and such a joy to watch!
Anna Akana is not your average YouTube comedian - She is funny, intelligent and very passionate about her art. With more than 700, 000 YouTube subscribers; Anna's videos stir emotion and provoke thought! While many of her videos are about touchy topics like suicide, religion and sex, she manages to bring out these topics in the most light hearted and charismatic fashion.
Lily aka superwoman
Ontario native Lilly Singh - more commonly known as Superwoman has stirred up quite storm on YouTube. While a lot of her videos are 'Brown Humour', you can be assured that her content is good for everyone! The psychology major has clocked in a total of 136 million video views since her internet debut in 2011. She's is without a doubt, one the quirkiest and most versatile comedians out there!
lia marie johnson
You may have seen Lia Marie Johnson on the popular web series by the Fine brothers - 'Kids React'. What you probably don't know is that the 17 year old has a YouTube channel of her own. The channel has a good following of more than 500, 000 subscribers and 31 million YouTube views in total! A stellar achievement for a lady her age. The versatile teenager is a master of all traits! She is a singer, songwriter, actress, director, comedian and business woman! I'm rooting for this girl!
Natalie Tran is probably one of the most funniest comedians on YouTube! The Australian native, who was born to Vietnamese parents, has been doing this for 7 years! Her skits are engaging, well written and honest. While she may sometimes be on the receiving end of cruel and racist banter, she takes this with a pinch of salt! Natalie works hard for her loyal fans and viewers. The University of New South Wales - Digital Media graduate ensures her content is of 'YouTube partner' standard and nothing short of amazing! Her eloquence has allowed her to gather a worldwide fan base of over 1.5 million subscribers! With her superb material, I am just waiting at the edge of my seat for her next video!
iJustine is no stranger to the online world! She is the brains behind some of the best music video spoofs online. The incredibly talented YouTuber has over 1 million subscribers on YouTube and her videos have been viewed more than 305 million times! Impressive! The comedian is not one to hold back in her videos - from dancing at an Apple store to doing crazy skits with Shane Dawson, it is no surprise that she is continuously moving up the success ladder. With so much achievement under her belt, I am confident that iJustine will be around for many years to come.
That wraps up my list of favourite female YouTubers! Do you agree? Who are your favourite YouTubers?
