Early Life[edit]

Joe Scott was born in Texas and has lived there his whole life. At the age of 14, he started attending Olney High School, graduating in 1993.[10] He then went on to study Radio/TV/Film at the University of North Texas, earning his Bachelor of Arts degree[11][12] before completing The ProSeries Advanced Screenwriting Program at ScreenWritingU.[13]



While attending the University of North Texas, Joe Scott began a 1-year internship at The Hall Agency,[13] it is here he first got to work on copy for both ads and radio while also TV and Radio talent. After graduating, Scott went on to write 3 indie films, The Lock-In, Reluctant Hitman (2001) and Ocean Front Property (2004) while simultaneously working full-time jobs.

Joe's first job, after leaving university, was working as a copywriter for BSA Advertising where he would write advertisements, in both print and radio, for big named clients such as UPS and Abbott Pharmaceuticals. Joe worked here from 1998 to 2001,[13] which is when the first film he co-wrote, Reluctant Hitman, was released.[14]

The year following the release of his first film, Joe began working as a Video Producer for Casa Creativa,[13] a Hispanic agency founded in 2001 by Humphries Marketing Group.[15] During his time here, Joe would write, direct and edit many TV commercials for the Spanish market, before leaving in 2004, it was at this time his second film (at the first he starred in) was released, Ocean Front Property.[1][2][16]

In 2005, Scott started working for The Dallas Morning News as an ad copywriter,[17] where be worked for 11 years. While working at DMN, he started the series Answers With Joe, after his first ever science-based video about The Fermi Paradox gained mass attention.[18] In 2015 he founded Cankerboy.com[19] and in 2016, after leaving DMN, he started working as a Video Strategist at Vidpow[20] before leaving in 2018 and working full-time on YouTube.[13]

Scott Creative Endeavors[edit]

In 1998, Joe Scott started Morningwood Productions, later re-branding, in 2010, to Scott Creative Endeavors,[21] an umbrella company in which he ran a variety of other smaller entities.[13] In 2014 SCE ceased operating.

Night & Day Films[edit]

Joe's very first company,along with his business partner, Chad Gundersen, was Morningwood Productions,[22] an independent motion picture production & distribution company, the two would later go on to rename the company Night & Day films[23] just 2 years later. In 2010, so as not to have his company confused with LA-based film company, Night & Day Pictures and to because his business projects had expanded outside of film making alone, Scott later re-branded the whole company to Scott Creative Endeavors, Inc, no longer working with his former partner.

The Daily Epic[edit]

Prior to starting Answers With Joe, Scott ran a viral content blog "with over a million monthly views".[13][24]


In 2011 Joe founded his company Cankerboy, a website who provide information about canker sore and sell products to chronic sufferers of the disease.[13][19][25] The company is still operating to this day.


Originally, when he started Youtube in 2006, Joe would upload trailers to his movies and short skits.[26] [20]On 18 May 2012, he uploaded his first "Ask Joe" video, 2014, Joe made weekly videos of him answering viewer questions (who were usually his friends on Facebook), then in 2015 he answered his first science-based question about aliens and made it about the Fermi Paradox, which, at the time, became very popular, very fast.[27] This rise in the video's popularity led to Joe gaining an increasing rate of subscribers, who, in turn, would ask more questions (which tended to be science-based - because it was the Fermi Paradox video that brought them in), from here, Joe continued to answer questions and make videos about science, the future and most notably, Elon Musk.[12]

In September 2017, Joe started a second channel, Joe Scott - TMI,[28] with the intention of making daily vlogs where he spoke to his subscribers in unedited, unscripted videos. Although he doesn't upload to this channel daily, he does upload frequently, often talking about his personal life, replying to comments and discussing the previous day's video on his main channel.


Joe frequently works with a number of sponsors on his main channel, including Squarespace, Skillshare[29][30], CuriosityStream[31][30] and Brilliant.[32][30]


Joe written, directed and starred in the movie Ocean Front Property.[33] He also co-written Reluctant Hitman[34] and The Lock-In.[35]


Joe sells his own AnswersWithJoe merchandise (consisting of t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, posters and mobile phone cases) in his online store.[36] He can often be seen wearing his various t-shirts in his videos both on his main channel, and his second channel.

Joe's sister, Jen, started a since-abandoned Youtube channel, Jen Hugs Books in 2015.

Prior to starting a Youtube channel, Joe did a bit of stand-up comedy, only to give up due to the difficulty of being a stand-up comic while trying to also support himself working a full-time job.[43]

Joe Scott shares a birthday with Theoretical physicists, Albert Einstein, and had a poster of him on his wall growing up.[20][43]

Joe hopes to reach 1,000,000 subscribers on his main channel and 100,000 subscribers on his second channel before the end of 2020.
