GradeAUnderA is a British YouTube star who became popular for his comedic style of commentary and bold opinions on various subjects, particularly on the YouTube community. He is also well-known on Twitch and Twitter, and has a strong fan following on these platforms as well. Before he became a popular YouTuber, he was undergoing training to become a teacher. However, due to differences with his instructor, he left the training midway and took up YouTube as a full-time job. After several months of disappointment, his video, ‘Girly Drinks vs. Manly Drinks’, published in April 2013, received a significant number of views. Nominated for the title of the Best YouTuber by Reddit users, he describes his YouTube name ‘GradeAUnderA’ as the summary of himself. While ‘GradeA’ stands for a Grade A student, ‘UnderA’ describes him as an underachiever in life! His channel and his associated business were both running successfully at one point in time. But of late, he has been very irregular in uploading videos and disappears for long durations.
Rise to Stardom
He created his YouTube channel GradeAUnderA on January 31, 2013. It has amassed 3.2 million subscribers and 370 million views as of May 2018. He also runs another YouTube channel called GradeBUnderB, which he describes as a back-up channel in case he is compelled to close down his main channel GradeAUnderA. His videos feature animated cartoons and his rants about different subjects in a comedic style. His videos are humorous but the cartoons are poorly drawn, according to commentors. He once used to upload videos once a week, usually on Saturdays.
His satirical rants about fellow YouTubers, politicians, and celebrities are paticularly liked by his subscribers. He likes to interact with his fans directly, which he does quite often.
He once revealed that he draws the cartoons and sequences them in Microsoft Paint, edits them with Windows Movie Maker, and records his voice with a Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II phone.
Due to his controversial comments and sarcastic rants, he had gone viral on Reddit several times. His business and channel had been among the fastest-growing ones.
In 2017, he suddenly disappeared from his channel and stopped uploading videos. In May 2017, he announced that he was caught in some "life issues" and would again start uploading videos soon. However, he disappeared for a few months again and finally returned to his channel in September 2017. The last video he uploaded was on September 20, 2017. Since then, he has not uploaded any videos.
