David Dobrik (born 23 July, 1996)[1] is a Slovakian-American YouTuber, actor, vlogger and former viner. After starting his Vine account in 2013 he amassed 1.3 million followers on the app. He moved to YouTube in 2014 and had 10 million subscribers as of December, 2018.[2][3]

Early Life[edit | edit source]

David Dobrik was born in Košice, Slovakia and moved with his parents to Chicago when he was young; he and his family immigrated to the country illegally, thus making him a DACA recipient, putting at potential risk of deportation. He has three siblings, Ester, Sara, and Toby.[4][5]

Career[edit | edit source]

Vine[edit | edit source]

Dobrik originally gained recognition for his comedic skits on the app Vine. During his tenure on the app, Dobrik collaborated with several other "Viners", including actor Jason Nash, Gabbie Hanna, Alex Ernst, Scotty Sire, and Liza Koshy. By the time the app had been shut down in 2017, Dobrik had amassed a following of over 1.3 million.[6]

YouTube[edit | edit source]

In 2014, Dobrik then started his own YouTube channel, where he originally posted short comedic videos or pranks on his roommates. He later began to post short lengthened vlogs on his channel.[7] Dobrik's vlogs often include cameos from celebrities such as Josh Peck, John Stamos, Miranda Cosgrove, Jennifer Lopez, Howie Mandel, Paris Hilton, and Kendall Jenner.[8] Dobrik has made over 500 vlogs since then and has stated that he has considered ending the vlog.[9]

Acting[edit | edit source]

In 2016, Dobrik played the role of Taylor Mackey in the movie FML, directed by Jason Nash. He also was featured in the short film, “An Interrogation,” where he played himself.[10] In 2018, Dobrik stars in an undisclosed capacity in the film Airplane Mode.[5]

Other ventures[edit | edit source]

Since 2016, Dobrik has a podcast called "VIEWS" with Jason Nash, where they discuss their own relationships, their experience on YouTube, and the interactions they have with fans. The podcast topped iTunes charts after its initial release. In 2018, they went on a nine city tour.[11][12]

Personal life[edit | edit source]

In November 2015, Dobrik began dating actress and Youtube comedian Liza Koshy for nearly 3 years, publicly announcing their relationship on Valentine's Day of 2016. But they broke up in January of 2018 and announced it on 4 June, 2018.[13][14] The video had 14 million views in the first 24 hours after its release and was the third top trending video on YouTube in 2018.[15][16]

DACA[edit | edit source]

In a video, Dobrik addressed that he was a recipient of the DACA policy and took a vocal stance to oppose President Trump's attempt to dismantle the program.[17] On Twitter, Dobrik said "I paid $400,000 in taxes last year and all I got was a free trip back to Slovakia #DefendDACA."[4]
