Jack Vale (born September 2, 1973) is an American comedian who has a popular YouTube channel featuring hidden-cameras and pranks. He lives in Roseville, California, with his wife and five children.
Several of Vale's pranks are what he calls "Pooter" pranks. These involve Vale walking around in public making flatulence sounds, using a handheld device and capturing the reactions of the people nearby on a hidden camcorder. On one occasion this resulted in a physical altercation between Vale and an old man (whose wife Vale used the device on nearby), despite Vale explaining that it was a prank and even showing him the device. The subsequent police intervention led to both the man and Vale being banned from that specific supermarket. Many of his pranks are completed in Huntington Beach, CA.
Other pranks include "Paranoid", sketches in which Vale, pretending to be talking on his mobile phone, walks past customers in a shop or on the street and describes them to his imaginary conversational partner (in order to see whether they will react with paranoia), and "Nonsense", in which Vale confuses members of the public by approaching them and speaking gibberish. Vale is also known to dress up in a mask as an old man while filming his pranks.
Jack Vale often works with his Uncle John, who has his own YouTube channel called unclejohntv. Vale has also worked with fellow YouTube comedian and friend MagicofRahat, Ed Bassmaster, Greg Benson of Mediocrefilms, Roman Atwood and Dennis Roady, VitalyzdTv, Tom Mabe, Garrett & Ashley of Overboardhumor, all of whom he met on YouTube.
