Here's the lowdown...

My comedy YouTube channel got it's start with me "explaining" movies to the people who weren't the target market for that particular movie.

It's just me, Jeb, talking smack about the plot, the characters, and the group of people in the video's title in a way that relates to the group and helps the group relate to the movie. Each video addresses a unique group of people (millennials, adults, men, minimalists... just a few I've chosen so far).

No matter which group I choose or what the movie is, the videos are for everyone.

I have not had the benefit of any connections. No posts to large blogs or websites. No outside promotion. No YouTube creators promoting me in their videos. (I don't know any.) It's just me, Jeb, making videos when I can with some help from a few family members, and we're working to make each better.

I have read many blogs and have heard from other content creators that 1,000 subscribers within 6 months with no promotion or connections is insane. At my 6-month mark, I had 2,000 subscribers!

It's been almost a year since I uploaded my first video, and I'm over 25,000 subscribers.

UPDATE: At 15 months, the channel now has 55,000!

Sometimes I can't even believe it.


Now that the channel is larger, we're in the early stages of creating Original MEF Productions and Jeblogs, merchandise, and improving our website.

I appreciate all of you who contribute, watch the videos, and subscribe to the channel. You all are helping us build something unique. All of the positive support y'all give to it makes me believe in it more and more every day.
