His videos vary greatly but popular themes include challenges with other YouTubers, pranks, impressions and other segments. One of his most popular creations is “YouTuber Innuendo Bingo”, a concept similar to the popular segment on BBC Radio 1. His impressions are also uncanny with the artist impersonating everyone from fellow YouTuber Tyler Oakley to One Direction’s Niall Horan.
Joe’s success has seen him work alongside some big names in the YouTube community including Caspar Lee and Zoella.

Off-screen Joe has met similar success in the form of his graphic novels. Entitled Username: Evie, Username: Regenerated, and Username: Uprising, the novels address teen bullying and family grief all within the frame of the sci-fi world that is influenced by the main character’s feelings. This beautifully illustrated series has won Joe a cult following and shows just how creative this influencer and artist is.
