Yousef grew up in his hometown as the youngest of four children of parents of Palestinian descent. He has two brothers and a sister, Noura Erakat, a famous human rights attorney and assistant professor at New Century College, George Mason University.
His childhood wasn’t out of the book as he had difficulty accepting people’s behavior towards Muslims, while later in life he had problems with Muslim families when he had his body tattooed. This led to an ongoing battle with depression, bipolar disorder, and drug addiction. Fortunately, he managed to find solace in comedy.
Before setting up fouseyTube, Yousef had several other YouTube channels but had little to no success. That went on with fouseyTube too, but he decided to upload stereotypical videos about Muslims, which soon got his career going. He grew in popularity and in no time he was able to post Muslim videos as new popular ideas began to brew in his head. Thanks to its burgeoning popularity, Yousef was named one of the “40 Inspirational Muslims Under 40” by MBMuslima Magazine in 2012. He now focused on pranks, skits, and other comedy videos, which earned him a YouTube Diamond Play Button Award in June 2017 when he passed the 10 million subscriber mark. His videos have been viewed more than 1.6 billion times, which has been a significant contributor to his fortune. His most popular videos include “SPIDERMAN IN REAL LIFE PRANK!”, Which has been viewed more than 145 million times, then “HAPPY ENDING MASSAGE PRANK!” with 95 million views and “MORTAL KOMBAT ELEVATOR PRANK!”. which has collected 79 million views so far. In 2015, Yousef signed a deal with the Creative Artists Agency, one of the most prestigious talent agencies in Los Angeles, which grew his fortune significantly. Most recently, he began working with fellow YouTuber Roman Atwood when they ventured on a tour together called the Roman vs Fousey Tour.
In addition to his main channel, he has two other YouTube channels that take a more personal approach – DoseOfFousey and KATS, which together have more than 4.5 million subscribers and have attracted 570 million views, adding to his fortune.
He’s also an accomplished musician and actor, which has had a positive impact on his net worth as well. One of his most famous appearances is the role of Jonathan in the horror comedy “Boo! A Madea Halloween “(2016) and the sequel” Boo 2! A Madea Halloween ”(2017). In 2015 his debut single “Prideland” was released.
In terms of his personal life, Yousef is in a relationship with fellow YouTube star Lilly Singh, best known to the world as IISuperwomanII. He previously had a relationship with a girl named Alycia Tire and was briefly with a girl named Simmi.
