From stunts to ‘old-man’ haircuts, songs and then to new jokes, Danny Duncan sprung to fame for doing what he knows best which is making people laugh. He is not your traditional celebrity but a digital star who’s unbiased in dealing with his prank victims. Given that his comedy is based more on sarcasm, Danny considers himself to be a great guy who should not be taken seriously rather than a contemptible dude. Find out why the digital prankster/skateboarder’s fans adore and love him.
Who is Danny Duncan and How Old is He?
A Floridian, Danny Duncan’s date of birth is July 27, 1992. The YouTuber didn’t exactly have a smooth childhood as his parents split quite early in his life. Duncan, his sister, and half brother were consequently raised by their mom in their hometown of Englewood. Moreover, his family struggled to make ends meet which was a major motivation for Duncan to succeed.
Growing up, Danny Duncan was an active athlete. After high school, he took up a job at Walgreens in order to make ends meet but didn’t last up to a year on the job. He later relocated to Los Angeles at age 22 in search of greener pastures. It was while helping to train professional athletes in the city that Danny met actor Jason Lee who eventually motivated him to start an online or acting career. Although Duncan initially had no intention of chasing an entertainment career, he later gave in and on March 6, 2014, his famous YouTube channel was born.
In collaboration with Christopher Chan, his friend, and fellow YouTuber, Duncan uploaded his first video Steve Hamilton – The Chosen One and was further impressed by the positive reviews and feedback. A few years down the line, the YouTuber has never looked back. Duncan is famed for his skateboarding and prank videos. From interviewing students about songs to asking sexually suggestive questions and parodies of Greek life, no issue is off-limits and nothing crosses the line for Danny.
Danny Duncan got a major breakthrough in June, following his Falling With 30,000 Pennies video which showed him attempting to go downstairs on a hoverboard while carrying a box with 30,000 coins. The video which currently has over 20 million views did not only become his first ever to surpass 1 million views, but it also remains the most viewed on his channel to date. Presently, Duncan can boast of no less than 2.5 million subscribers on his YouTube channel. Some of his most popular videos yet include Surprising My Sister With A New Car, Gary Pranked the News, Hot Tub On The Freeway and Buying Lonzo Ball’s $500 Shoe!
Like many digital native stars, Danny Duncan also earns a living by selling online. He has the patent right to Virginity Rocks, a brand name which the YouTuber uses for his self-funded, countrywide tours, as well as the lucrative merch line which he launched in 2017. Slides, backpacks, swim trunks, hoodies, hats, stickers, and even condoms are what Duncan’s merch line has to offer. They can be found in the physical world in hundreds of Zumiez stores across the country.
Danny Duncan is a self-made millionaire. Besides his online career, the YouTuber is also a businessman who sells things online. Danny’s net worth is currently pegged at $1.2 million, an amount that is expected to increase at a prolific rate following his lucrative endeavours online.
Danny Duncan’s Height
Danny Duncan is perhaps not your tallest nor shortest digital star favourite. The famous YouTuber stands at a height of 5 feet 10 inches. However, his weight and other body measurements have not been disclosed.
Judging by some of his YouTube videos, it is safe to say Duncan has strong family values and has a large heart. In 2017, the YouTuber endeared himself to many more fans after posting videos that showed him gifting his sister a new car and purchasing a new house for his mom. While buying a new house for his mom has always been one of Duncan’s life goals, he got his sister a new car because her old truck was faulty.
Although Danny Duncan wants to work only for himself while also involving his friends in his endeavours, the YouTuber has big dreams for the entertainment industry. Duncan’s YouTube channel is apparently the pedestal for him to launch his much-desired acting and singing career. So far, the budding musician and actor has at least one single under his belt and is hopeful for a bright future in television and film.
Duncan has kept details of his personal life under the radar. While the YouTuber is presumed to be currently single, he was romantically linked to a fellow internet star Lindsey Bell in the past. Although their relationship was unconfirmed at the time, the former lovebirds were speculated to have split by mid-2015.
