Yousef grew up in his hometown, the youngest child of four born to parents of Palestinian ancestry. He has two brothers and a sister, Noura Erakat, who is a famous human rights attorney and an assistant professor at New Century College, George Mason University.
His childhood wasn’t one from the books, since he struggled with accepting people’s behavior towards Muslims, while in later life he had problems with Muslim families when he had his body tattooed. This led to a constant fight with depression, bipolar disorder, and substance addiction. Luckily, he has managed to find solace in comedy.
Before setting up fouseyTube, Yousef had several other YouTube channels but had none to little success. This continued even with fouseyTube, but he decided to start uploading stereotypical videos regarding Muslims, which soon got his career going. Steadily he was becoming more popular, and in no time he was able to drop Muslim videos, as new popular ideas were brewing in his mind. Thanks to his budding popularity, in 2012 Yousef was named as one of the “40 Inspiring Muslims Under 40”, by MBMuslima Magazine. He now focused on pranks, sketches and other comedy videos, which brought him a YouTube Diamond Play Button award in June 2017, when he passed the 10 million subscribers mark.

Some of his most popular videos include “SPIDERMAN IN REAL LIFE PRANK!”, which has been viewed more than 145 million times, then “HAPPY ENDING MASSAGE PRANK!”, which has 95 million views, and “MORTAL KOMBAT ELEVATOR PRANK!”, which has so far collected 79 million views. In 2015, Yousef signed a contract with Creative Artists Agency, one of the most prestigious Los Angeles-based talent agencies, which significantly increased his net worth. Most recently, he began collaborating with fellow YouTuber Roman Atwood as the two ventured on a tour together, entitled “Roman vs Fousey Tour”.
In addition to his main channel, he has two more YouTube channels, which have a more personal approach – DoseOfFousey, and KATS, on which he has more than 4.5 million subscribers combined, and attracted 570 million views, further increasing his net worth.
He is also an accomplished musician, and actor, which has also had a positive effect on his net worth. Some of his most popular appearances include the role of Jonathan in the horror comedy film “Boo! A Madea Halloween” (2016), and its sequel “Boo 2! A Madea Halloween” (2017).
