YouTube celebrities Noodlerella, Jamie Jo, Evan Edinger, Alex Bertie, Jake Edwards and Pete Bucknall will all be coming to next weekend’s London Comic Con as the guests of YouTube festival Summer in the City!
More than 790,000 people subscribe to YouTube star Connie Glynn – aka Noodlerella – for her impressions of cartoon and live action characters, from Disney princesses to Harry Potter heroines, as well as her takes on cosplay, anime, kawaii style and life in general. Noddlerella also runs two side channels: NoodleVlogs and NoodleGames.
Evan Edinger’s channel covers everything from Pokémon GO and ukulele covers to politics and religion. Often with puns. Lots of puns. An American YouTuber living in London, Evan has fun with differences between his adopted home and the States – whether it’s slang, snacks or school assemblies. In addition to his main channel, Evan also has a travel vlog.
Jamie Jo is best known for her pop culture-inspired arts and crafts channel BananaJamana, which has garnered nearly 350,000 subscribers since she began it back in 2010. Whether it’s drawing Suicide Squad’s Harley Quinn, painting Pikachu cupcakes or planning a Disney party, BananaJamana is a charm-packed explosion of arty goodness.
Two of the most prominent trans creators on YouTuber, Alex Bertie and Jake Edwards’ channels TheRealAlexBertie and JakeFTMagic have hundreds of thousands tuning in for their open, honest and entertaining vlogs about gender, sexuality and everyday life, tackling everything from big issues such as anxiety and mental health to… um… singing songs in chicken voices.
Alongside vlogs about what’s going on in his life, actor and musician Pete Bucknall’s channel Pete’s Jams features a healthy helping of songs to brighten your day, often from his beloved Disney – check out his cover of Tangled‘s ‘I See The Light’ with Carrie Hope Fletcher and ‘Jack’s Lament’ from The Nightmare Before Christmas!
