YouTube was an idea that once existed as an abstract entity in the head of a couple of men but as of today, it has become the internet’s leading video platform. Not only has it become the destination of choice for video creatives, but it has also become a workplace, where those who are able to create content to arrest the interest of thousands or millions of viewers are financially rewarded for their efforts. One of those people is Cody Kolodziejzyk, popularly known as Cody Ko by YouTube viewers.
Cody Ko became an online viral sensation in 2013 and hasn’t looked back ever since. He has managed to take his YouTube comedy career into the real world as a road act where several of his fans come out to watch him perform. He truly epitomizes the evolution of a modern entertainer.
Cody Ko Biography
It is always strange to see your heroes, particularly those in the entertainment industry go by unusual names and that is what fans of Cody Ko will feel when they learn that the YouTube star was born as Cody Kolodziejzyk on the 22nd of November 1990 to parents Greg and Helen Kolodziejzyk. He was born in Calgary, Alberta and has a sibling named Krista Kolodziejzyk.
It is worth noting that before the birth and eventual rise to stardom of the Youtuber, fame was not an unknown thing to the Kolodziejzyk family. His father Greg is a cyclist who holds several world records. However, despite the resident fame in the Kolodziejzyk family, none could compare to that of Cody when he became a YouTube sensation.
His rise to the top of YouTube entertainment can be considered a surprise considering the Alberta-born entertainer attended Duke University where he studied Computer Science and competed in the diving team following his graduation from Springbank Community High School. Simply put, there was nothing in his background to suggest a career in entertainment.
Regardless, after strings of successful Vine skits during the heydays of the 6-seconds video platform, Cody Ko, along with several Viners moved to YouTube when he began creating and uploading several comedy contents. His YouTube channel is eponymously named and was created on the 29th of May, 2014.
Since that time, Cody has grown his channel to over 2.1 million subscribers and has recorded over 250 million views. The YouTube personality started out with vlogs but as his audience grew, he diversified into several video contents like reaction videos, commentary, and Q&A videos. Over time, he has collaborated with other YouTube stars like his own girlfriend, Kelsey Kreppel, Noel Miller and a couple of others.

A sophomore album was released in the following year titled Locals Only in December 2018. Their collaborations also include a podcast titled the Tiny Meat Gang Podcast.
