Ryan Higa, better known as Nigahiga for his YouTube channel of the same name, is an American YouTube personality of Japanese origin. The channel was created in 2006 by Higa and his friend Sean Fujiyoshi, who started by posting videos of themselves lip-syncing to songs of famous singers. They soon shifted to comic videos and the series of 'How to be' videos on so-called 'tips' to become a ninja, gangster or nerd became very popular with his fans. A natural comedian, Higa produces, directs, writes for, and acts in his videos which often feature guest appearances by Tim Enos, Ryan Villaruel, Kyle Chun, and Tarynn Nago. When it comes to the numbers, Higa has had an eventful timeline on YouTube. One of the most subscribed to YouTubers, he has over 18 million subscribers to his primary channel ‘Nigahiga’ and 4.4 million to his second channel ‘HigaTV’, which usually contains behind-the-scene footage from the videos on his primary channel. He was the first YouTuber to reach 3 million subscribers, and once even had more subscribers than the famous Pop singer Taylor Swift. He also gained second spot in the Variety magazine’s #Famechangers Digital Star ranking in 2015.
