Who is Kurtis Conner?

Kurtis Conner was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, on 4 May 1994 – his zodiac sign is Taurus, and he holds Canadian nationality. He’s a YouTuber, stand-up comedian and a former Viner, who’s most likely known best for his eponymous YouTube channel. It was launched on 15 April 2014, however, it only became popular in 2017, when one of Kurtis’ videos was watched over half a million times in only two days. The channel’s today subscribed to by close to 3.2 million people, and numbers over 350 million views of all his videos combined.

Kurtis often collaborates with his friends Drew Gooden and Danny Gonzalez, and the trio is mostly focused on criticizing the problematic content on YouTube, as well as on making fun of the YouTubers they don’t like.

Early life and education

Kurtis was raised in Hamilton alongside his sister Kylie, by their parents who prefer to be left out of media, thus not a lot is known about them. It’s said that their father is working as a car salesman, and that their mother’s a lawyer.

Kurtis was interested in numerous activities while growing up, and was into games, enjoyed playing soccer and basketball, and telling his friends jokes. He was attending a local high school when he became interested in social media networks, and upon launching his Vine account, Kurtis steadily built himself a fanbase thanks to his sense of humor. He then decided to pursue comedy as a career, and upon matriculating in 2013 he enrolled into the Humber College’s Comedy: Writing and Performance program, graduating with a degree in 2016.

Most popular YouTube videos

Widely known for his commentary, Kurtis likes to talk about some stereotypes which can usually be found on YouTube, but always in a funny way, which would entertain his fans. We’re going to mention three of his most popular videos, which have largely contributed to the rise of his popularity on the platform.

Kurtis’ #1 video “The “I’m Not Like Most Girls” Phenomenon” has been watched more than 9.2 million times since 15 March 2019, and features Kurtis as he speaks about the girls on the internet, who claim to be ‘different from most girls’.

His second most popular video – “Deep” Content That Isn’t Deep At All” – has been watched close to nine million times since 8 February 2019, and in which Kurtis speaks about the alleged ‘deep’ content on the internet, which he propunds that in most cases isn’t deep at all.

His third most popular video “The Country Girls of TikTok” has been seen close to seven million times since 14 December 2018, and follows Kurtis as he’s talking about the country girls on TikTok. A while back, he made the video “The Country Boys of TikTok”, but the sequel’s a lot more popular than the original.

Kurtis is quite active on most of the today’s popular social media networks. He’s followed by over a million people on Instagram, and has uploaded close to 1,300 pictures, the majority of which have been taken during his everyday life.
