Ray William Johnson (official YouTube channel name RayWilliamJohnson) is an entertainer who sprung into fame in 2009 when he started reviewing viral videos on Youtube. Users submit videos twice a week, and Ray will review each video adding his witty commentary. His show is entitled Equals Three (=3). On Equals Three, Ray has helped popularize many internet memes such as “Communist Roll’d”, “Gingers Do Have Souls”, and the fact that “all women should be in the kitchen.” Ray lives in New York, and attends college.
At the end of every video, Ray asks his audience to submit their suggestions for a comment question of the day. The users upload their comment question of the day on their specific YouTube accounts. These range from funny to interesting. In the outro of every episode, Ray features his Top 5 favorite comments from the question from the previous episode.
Ray currently upload his Equals Three videos usually every Monday and Thursday. However, it does happen sometimes that an episode is uploaded on Fridays. The Equals Three episodes usually air on the evenings. The episodes average over 2.5 million views per video. His most viewed video “DON’T CALL ME FAT!!” was uploaded on August 23, 2009, and have, as of June 25, 2010, gotten over 10 million views.
However, Ray has a serious life too. Ray also has an alternate “vlogging” channel, called BreakingNYC. In that channel, Ray record parts of his daily life every day since he started, often adding some of his catchphrases in, along with some jokes and gags. His show mainly consists of Ray, Will and his cousin Tessa (MeekaKitty). However, that show has currently been inactive, since May 12, 2010. Ray states in that video that he is currently having a indefinite break from that channel, due to his workload of his other projects.
Ray is currently in early talks with HBO Studios to get his own one hour comedy special. Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim has also recently expressed interest in having Ray do voice work on his own animated series.
