Yousef Erakat Bio – 2018 Update
Born and raised in California, Yousef Erakat previously pursued an acting career after graduating from San Jose State University. As it happened, however, he eventually got involved with Youtube (most if not all of his initial channels related to fitness) in the early 2010’s. Fast forward to 2017, and he’s become one of the most successful personalities on the site with over 10 million subscribers (and counting) on Fouseytube (it’s probably also worth mentioning that he has a vlogging channel under the name, doseoffousey). For his work, he has won many accolades including two Streamy Awards and three Shorty Award nominations.
Aside from his exceptional Youtube career, the twenty-something is an actor (as briefly touched upon earlier). In 2009, he lent his voice to a character in the animated series, The Secret Saturdays. His official acting debut, however, wasn’t until much later in 2016; that year, he had played a supporting character in Tyler Perry’s comedy horror film, Boo! A Made Halloween (2016). Since then, he has added two more credits to his name; the comedy flick, We Love You (2016), and the sequel to the earlier title, Boo 2! A Made Halloween (2017). What else has Yousef Erakat been up to recently? Last year, he also participated in the sci-fi series, Fight of the Living Dead.
