There are many people today who have become famous on the Internet for their silliness, and stomedy belongs to this group. Professionally, these kinds of people refer to themselves as Internet personalities. Stomedy’s chosen platform for his silliness is YouTube, so he is a YouTube personality. His stage name is a combination of his first name Steve and Comedy.
Who is Stomedy, Where Is He From?
Who is stomedy? YouTube users have wanted to know since the guy started gaining considerable traction on YouTube. Simply put, he’s an Internet personality known for his self-titled YouTube channel Stomedy, where he posts funny videos about anything and everything you can imagine. He is an African American with roots in South Africa. He was born in Jacksonville, Florida on April 14, 1989.
Stomedy is not one of those YouTube personalities who takes the time to answer fans’ questions or talk about how they started vlogging. So not so much is known about his background. The joker is very committed to making his subscribers laugh, and that’s it.
According to the About page of his YouTube channel, Stomedy started his YouTube channel in November 2011, and today he has over 670,000 subscribers and over 4.2 million views. When he started, he made sketches that focused on late pizza delivery. Later, he began to joke about other aspects of life.
One of the most unique features of his videos is the ASMR sounds. ASMR means “Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response”, something that Stomedy described in his About Page as “a euphoric experience characterized by a static or tingling sensation on the skin…”. Well, in plain English it’s just a strange sound, made with the ultimate goal of keeping the listener busy and sometimes frightened.
Stomedy runs a separate channel ASMR Sounds, which is strictly dedicated to his love for all things ASMR. He broadcasts every week on the channel, which has over 103,000 subscribers. According to the channel’s description, he was inspired by Kuna Tik, a very popular YouTube channel with over 4 million subscribers and over 1 billion views.
Some of his most popular videos contain mermaid content. One of them is entitled “REAL Mermaids Caught on Camera (NO FAKE) And Mermaids Caught On Tape Reaction”.
Steve’s channel received a lot of attention when he began introducing his YouTube personality Calvin Lee Vail, known by his YouTube brand name LeafyIsHere. Leafy was interested in stomedy after Pyrocynical, and another YouTube personality made a video about the joker. Leafy had responded to the video by shooting his own video, opening the doors for future collaboration with Steve.
The duo has since appeared on each other’s channels.
Steve has done many crazy things in his videos – from trying to drill his head with a drill to drinking bleach, smoking cardboard, and being locked in his bathroom for 48 hours. He remains active in the YouTube community by participating in various YouTube challenges.
