Brandon Rogers


Brandon Rogers (formerly known as "hotbananastud") is a YouTube comedian known for his viral videos that employ high production values and a shared narrative through-line with off-color, and often offensive, humor, alongside the multitude of characters and stereotypes he portrays in his videos, similar to the videos of Filthy Frank or Shane Dawson. Since the creation of his channel he has received more than 3 million subscribers as of 2018.


Brandon created his YouTube account on January 7, 2006. On December 6th of that year he uploaded his first video "Celebrity Impressions"(shown below) which to date has over 800,000 views. His first series, Theater Class, premiered on April 17, 2009 and ended on May 20th, 2012 with two seasons and 24 episodes total.[1]

He would later go on to create sketch videos and parodies, acting as various recurring characters. His first character "Grandpa" was inspired by his own grandfather and first appeared on December 16, 2008. One of his most popular characters "Helen" debuted on November 5, 2015, where she is a detention manager of a primary school.

His one million subscriber special "A Day at the Park" was uploaded on April 2016. The video is his most popular video to date, with more than 28.3 million views. The video features his "Mom" character taking her daughter to a field trip, interacting with Brandon's many other characters.

Brandon has later worked on series such as Magic Funhouse on Fullscreen and Stuff and Sam on his own channel.


Brandon has become famous for his crude and exaggerative humor in his videos, often being featured in social media sites. In October 2015, a clip from his video "Grandpa Hates Valentimes" was uploaded on Vine, showing Grandpa saying "Try me, bitch" to one of his grandkids after the kid threw candy at him.[2] It became one of his most memorable catchphrases, with the clip having over 22.5 million views (as of late January 2018).

A more famous Vine clip from one of his videos is his "There is only one thing worse than a rapist" joke, taken from the second episode of his "Neighborhood Patrol" series.[3] The clip has more than 99 million views, and more than 17,000 upvotes on the /r/videos subreddit.[4]

His content has also been featured twice in The Fine Brothers' REACT series: the first reacting to his "Try me, bitch" Vine, and the second reacting to his sketch comedy videos. Brandon uploaded his reaction to the Adults React video (below, right) on January 21, 2018.[5]
