Episode 29: Lucas Cruikshank, Inventing Fred and Being the First YouTube Celebrity

In this episode, I sat down with viral YouTuber Lucas Cruikshank, the guy who created FRED. He had the first channel to get 1 million+ subscribers on YouTube and starred in three Nickelodeon Fred movies (with John Cena playing his Dad). These days Lukas is able to completely design his daily schedule and live off of the royalties from his two YouTube channels and movies. In this episode we talk about:

  • The origin of Fred
  • How to make money on YouTube
  • Making a movie
  • Growing up as Fred
  • Where he’s at now
