Overly Sarcastic Productions is an American educational Youtube channel featuring weekly videos about history, literature, and mythology. It is hosted by two individuals, known by their pseudonyms Red and Blue. Founded on April 7, 2011 by Red as a place to post a school project, the channel has since gained over 1 million subscribers, and serves as both hosts' full-time careers.[1]


Red and Blue are friends who met in high school and worked on the channel together through college. Red graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Blue graduated with a Bachelor's degree Classics and Philosophy. Both of them make videos on the channel as their full-time careers. They make income from YouTube ads, sponsorships, selling merchandise, and viewer support on Patreon.[2]


Most of the videos are animated in some capacity, with Red, a comic artist, drawing most of the animations. Red mostly focuses on classics, mythology, and literature; her series include Miscellaneous Myths, Trope Talks, Classics Summarized, Legends Summarized, and Shakespeare Summarized. Blue mostly focuses on history; his series include History Summarized, History-Makers, History Hijinks, and Travel Summarized. Additionally, the two occasionally stream themselves playing video games, usually accompanied by one or more of their friends; some of these streams get edited down and reanimated by Red as shorter stand-alone videos highlighting the most comedic moments of the streams.

The OSPYouTube Redbubble store was established in July 2019, selling merchandise based off of jokes from their videos.

Blue published Philosophical Phridays, the first volume written from 2014 to 2016 and the second written from 2016 to 2019.

The Overly Sarcastic Podcast was launched in September 27, 2020, where every other week, Red, Blue, and Indigo (their friend and producer), discuss the videos that they have made in the previous two weeks and answer user-submitted questions.[3] Guests on the podcast have included Tim Hickson of the YouTube Channel Hello Future Me, fellow YouTuber JoCat, and Blue's fiancee Cyan.
