Dan Howell & Phil Lester

YouTube stars

Dan Howell and Phil Lester are two of the world’s biggest YouTube stars. They were the first YouTubers to have their own show on BBC Radio 1, for which they won a Radio Academy Award in 2013. They have also presented online coverage of the BRIT Awards, reaching over 7 million viewers. At the end of 2014 Dan & Phil lent their voices to cameo characters in Disney’s hit movie ‘Big Hero 6’ which was the 3rd highest grossing Disney animation of all time. They have also voiced full episode of Disney TV’s The Lion Guard.
In conjunction with renowned app makers Mind Candy, Dan and Phil created the ‘7 Second Challenge’ app in 2015 which reached number 2 in the iTunes app chart and has been downloaded tens of thousands of times globally. In October 2015 Dan and Phil released their debut book ‘The Amazing Book is Not On Fire’ which was accompanied by a worldwide 80 date tour, playing a full length show (with musical number!) to over 200,000 fans. The book went to number 1 on the Times and New York Times Bestseller lists and the tour became the biggest world tour ever undertaken by online talent. The US tour closed with a sellout show at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, which was filmed alongside a ‘Making Of’ documentary, both of which were commissioned by Google as the first UK YouTube Originals to sit on new platform YouTube Red. In November 2016 Dan and Phil released their 2nd book ‘Dan and Phil Go Outside’ which also went to number 1 on the New York Times Bestseller list.
