Jason Eric Nash (born May 23, 1973)[3] is an American actor, writer, director, comedian, podcaster, and YouTube personality. Best known for his channel on Vine, he was also a semi-finalist on Last Comic Standing in 2010.[4] In 2016, Nash co-produced and starred in the movie, FML alongside friend and fellow YouTuber, Brandon Calvillo.

Career[edit]

Jason Nash moved to Los Angeles with the aspiration of becoming a comedian. Years into his life in Los Angeles, Nash built a presence on Vine and had over two million followers.[5] This was his first crack at the social media world, before becoming a Youtuber later on in his career. Nash trained with the Upright Citizens Brigade and started his career as a member of the sketch troupe "Price, Nash and Blieden". The trio developed television shows for Fox and NBC and were chosen three times to perform at the Aspen Comedy Festival.[6]

Nash wrote, directed and starred in his Comedy Central web series "Jason Nash Is Married", which was based on his one-man show "In the Land of Tall Buildings and Red Fire Engines".[7] A film version of "Jason Nash Is Married" was released in 2014 starring Busy Philipps.[8] Nash also created the web series "How to Be a Man and The Shaman".[9] In 2016, Nash starred and directed his own screenplay, a road trip comedy film "FML" featuring fellow Vine star Brandon Calvillo.[10]

Nash co-created the long-running podcast "Guys with Feelings" which debuted in 2006.[11] He has developed shows for Fox, NBC,[12]CBS, Oxygen and IFC. He has also acted in various shows including House, The Simpsons, Drake & Josh. Nash is currently a YouTube vlogger, and has over 1.6 million subscribers on his main channel.[13] Nash became a Youtube Vlogger after being discovered by fellow Viner, David Dobrik, one night at a comedy club. He began his Youtube career as a character in David Dobrik's vlogs, and soon began to upload his own videos. His first video was uploaded on December 2, 2016.[14]

Nash also runs a weekly podcast named "Views" with fellow YouTube personality David Dobrik. During its debut in 2017, "Views" climbed to #3 on the iTunes charts.[15] Jason Nash and David Dobrik also took their podcast on a live tour across the US in summer of 2018, with their fellow youtube friends, called the "Vlog Squad".[16] They called it the "VIEWS" Tour. This included performances from other Youtubers such as Scotty Sire, live stories and a live Q&A session.[17] Nash has stated that he is focused on Youtube as his career and because of this he uploads multiple times a week. For approximately one year, Nash had a second channel titled "Jason Nash Family" dedicated to his life with his children, Charley and Wyatt.[18] This channel was later shut down by the request of his ex-wife Marney, who requested that the children would not be on the internet in such a drastic way. Because of this, Nash has put all his attention to his main Youtube channel.
