But Yogscast, a unique and apparently very popular comedy gaming channel is the first UK-based YouTube partner to reach the epic viewership number.

The Yogscast YouTube channel features two British gamers, Simon Lane and Lewis Brindley, who have entertained audiences across the world with their hilariously entertaining adventures, coupled with an equally funny commentary.

Their antics have been aired since 2008, with viewers watching the real-life best friends challenge each other in online games in their millions.

It produces and distributes content for more than 600 online channels. The company has several types of content, including music, podcasts, animations, original storylines and ‘Let’s Play’ videos. As a result, it has a studio system where up-and-coming talent is groomed and created.
