Just For Laughs Gags, one of the most successful TV ventures for the Just For Laughs Group and can be seen on its own YouTube channel, has reached a monumental milestone since the channel was established in 2008.
Recently, the Just For Laughs Gags Channel can boast over 10 million subscribers, making it the most subscribed comedy channel in Canada, ranking it up there with such successful Canadian YouTube channels that are presented by Lily Singh, Unbox Therapy and rapper The Weeknd. To commemorate this milestone, Google Canada awarded their Diamond Play Button to the channel.
Created 20 years ago, Just For Laughs Gags has filmed almost 7,000 gags that involved 150,000 people getting pranked. The silent comedy/hidden camera show has racked up over six billion views around the world in such countries as China, Germany, Greece, Spain, and the U.S., and is part of the network of 11 Just For Laughs YouTube channels that are broadcast in several languages.
And in the spirit of Just For Laughs’ global reach through YouTube, the group is supporting the World Health Organization’s charitable causes via YouTube Giving. A donation button has been added and enabled on 250 selected videos across four of their channels, and Google.org will match $2 for every dollar raised through this initiative, to a maximum of $5 million.
