Youtube FanFest Toronto

YouTube FanFest coming to Toronto

The Canadian debut of YouTube FanFest is headed for Toronto, and I don't know if Jenna Marbles will be bringing her dogs, or if they'll be staying in the hotel, or if you can get their pawtographs - details are obviously lacking in regard to the new Toronto festival.

What we do know is on Saturday, May 2nd Yonge-Dundas Square will host the free showcase featuring over one dozen YouTube stars - those talented entertainers who make their living from the playlists you put on to laugh, make repetitive tasks bearable, avoid thinking, and keep the cat from feeling lonely when you leave the house.

Also on the bill for the Toronto festival are Bethany Mota, Kurt Hugo Schneider, Harley Morenstein and Epic Meal Time, IISuperwomanII, LaurDIY, David Choi, Michael Stevens of Vsauce, Veritasium, Kina Grannis, Macy Kate, JusReign, Daniela Andrade, Mike Tompkins, and Madilyn Bailey.

Each star has over one million subscribers, but can they bring their pixelated sparkle to a live, outdoor stage and the three hour long red carpet extravaganza that is somehow a thing? Will there be tiny dogs? Will someone be live streaming it so you can continue life as a shut in? It's hard to say.

Why doesn't your YouTube comedy channel have over one million subscribers? Let us know in the comments.
