YouTube makes many people famous – and rich! One of the beneficiaries of this new wave is Danny Duncan. He is not only a YouTube star, but also an actor, skateboarder, comedian and musician. Since he joined YouTube, his fame has grown rapidly. Thanks to the videos of his pranks and skateboards, he has a huge YouTube fan base of over 2.2 million people.
Danny has made quite a few popular videos that have attracted millions of viewers. These include “Grocery shopping with Danny Duncan 4”, “Falling with 30,000 pennies” and “Going down the stairs on a hoverboard”.
Even though his comedy videos almost look like a realistic portrayal of himself, he has claimed that they are strictly based on sarcasm and should therefore not be taken seriously. To further describe his collaboration and team spirit, he is closely associated with Christopher Chan and Andrew Hill, other YouTube stars. Duncan has expressed his wish to become a professional actor in Hollywood, he uses YouTube to get the ball rolling for himself.
Danny Duncan Bio
The famous YouTube star was born on July 27, 1992 in Englewood, Florida. After high school Danny worked at Walgreens. He did not like his job, so he quit after only a few months. According to the salary structure he started his YouTube channel on March 6, 2014. Duncan started publishing videos about skateboarding and the treatment of ankle injuries.
His YouTube channel might not have been such a success without a meeting with Jason Michael Lee, an American actor and former skateboarder. Lee, whose attention had been caught by Duncan’s videos, hired Danny to train him. While the duo worked together, Lee noticed Danny’s sarcasm and sense of humor and advised Danny to switch to comedy.
Danny Duncan followed his advice and worked with Christopher Chan to make comedy videos. In their first comedy video “Steve Hamilton – The Chosen One” he appeared naked while punching a sandbag. It set the tone for other exciting videos.
In 2016 his string videos began to buzz on YouTube. His most famous was Falling with 30,000 pennies, which generated well over 20 million views by December 2018. In most of his string videos he introduced his family, especially his sister. The most popular one was “Surprise my sister with a new car”, in which he surprised his sister with a new car after drowning the old car in front of a running camera.
Danny Duncan also sings a bit. On July 7, 2018 he released the song “I’m Upset” with the rapper Hopsin after he lost his new scooter. Outside of YouTube he has launched a number of merchandise items under the brand name “Virginity Rocks”.
What Is His Net Worth?
Duncan makes money from both YouTube and his merchandise, which also sells pretty fast. His YouTube channel has over 2.2 million people who have subscribed to him from March 2019. So far, his videos have been viewed cumulatively by over 400 million people. The channel also has an average of 500,000 views from various sources. With the YouTube payment rate, it should earn an average of $1,750 per day. This represents an annual value of $638,750 from ads that run on his videos.
The above estimate depends on the fact that YouTube stars earn between $2 and $5 per 1000 monetized views. The range for monetized views is typically between 40% and 60% of total views. The actual rate usually depends on so many factors, such as the number of ads on the video, the number of ads posted, the number of ads skipped, the location of the viewer, the device on which the ads were viewed, and so on. Until Youtube has made all these considerations and takes its share, the actual value of the YouTube videos will be paid to the YouTube star from the amount that advertisers have paid for the ads.
If you put all this in proportion and add the money he makes from his merchandise, Danny Duncan’s value is estimated at around $1 million.
Family Life of The YouTuber
He came from a home where there were some problems that led to the separation of his parents. As a result he fell into the hands of his mother, who raised him alongside his sister and half-brother. He did not have the best upbringing because his mother struggled to raise him. This helped to motivate Danny to work hard and become successful in life. After making money from YouTube, he bought his mother a new house.
As far as is known, he is single and not involved in any relationship.
