Before his YouTube career, Gharaibeh was working at a Best Buy and doing stand-up comedy on the weekends, mostly performing in small venues like restaurants. He got the idea to start making YouTube videos when his friend Cory Williams had a video that went viral. After working in retail for 10 years, Gharaibeh finally quit his job and began making videos full-time.
