Birth Place

Alex Burriss and Roi Fabito first met in middle school in Durham, North Carolina. They used to live in the same neighborhood down the street from each other. They went on to attend high school together where they became best friends. In 2005, Roi wanted to make videos with his friends and asked Alex if he was interested. Alex said yes and that’s how Wassabi Productions began! In 2006, YouTube was created and they uploaded their videos there to share with their family and friends. But not just their family and friends, the general public also loved their videos and in a very short span of time their videos became really popular and started getting a lot of views. Burriss and his friend make lip-sync videos, dance videos and funny videos.

The Meteoric Rise to Stardom

On 7 April 2012 Wassabi introduced two new characters called Rolanda and Richard who both debuted in the ‘Call Me Maybe’ Parody which got over 80 million views in two years! From there on, their YouTube channel gained over 6.4 million subscribers and 2 billion views. Alex and Roi traveled to Florida, Los Angeles and all over the world meeting fans, doing shows, and going on adventures. They also decided to produce weekly videos and post them on Wassabi Wednesdays. Their objective was to make people laugh and inspire Wassabians. Alex Burriss has not limited himself to just YouTube apparently. He has worked in movies like ‘The Duff’, ‘Laid In America’ and ‘This Is How We Never Made Out.’ Currently, Fabito is not a part of Wassabi Productions anymore. He left to pursue his individual goals and the YouTube channel is now in charge of Alex only. He also uploads a lot of videos featuring his girlfriend and himself.

The Meteoric Rise to Stardom

Alex Burriss is one of the most popular and funny guys out there, whose videos are genuinely funny and hilarious. His videos and statements actually make you laugh till it hurts in the belly! The fact that he is a handsome man helps his case a lot considering the fact that majority of his fan following consists of women. And since he is also very popular on Vine and Twitter, it makes him one of the most successful Internet stars out there in recent times. Another quality that works in his favour and makes people love him is the fact he gets exactly what this generation finds funny and develops and produces his videos accordingly. In other words, he has his finger on this generation’s pulse!

What Makes Alex So Special

Alex Burriss was born in Montana but was raised and grew up in Lexington, Kentucky. He is very close to his siblings, two brothers who are also YouTubers and a sister. In 2015, he began dating fellow YouTuber, Lauren Riihimaki.
