Since mainstream media has made it their duty to give Asian American entertainers the cold shoulder through out all these years, aspiring stars turned YouTube into their own Hollywood and now Asians dominate the YouTube realm. If it weren’t for YouTube, a lot of these online “celebrities” wouldn’t have received an opportunity to let their talents shine. So let Jackfroot.com run down the the Top 10 Asian American YouTube channels to date to see who’s on top and who’s on the rise.
(10) David So (DavidSoComedy)
At number 10 on our list we have funny newcomer David So from Los Angeles, CA. After joining YouTube in early 2011, David has already accumulated over 142,000 subscribers in less than a year. Those are pretty good numbers for someone who hasn’t been on YouTube for that long. It does help that this guy is freaking hilarious! The video that definitely launched his online career would have to be the response to Alexandra Wallace’s “Asians in the Library” video that caused an uproar with the Asian American community. His jokes in his video rebuttal gained him a dedicated following that will continue to grow as the years go by.
