Relationships, why he changed his career, and what he’s been working on lately – all this and more!

How did Joe Jo become famous?

Joe Jo, as a YouTube sensation, actor, entrepreneur, and vlogger grew in popularity when America was trying to embrace their millions of mixed-race civilians. With a Japanese ethnicity, his real name is Joseph Masato Jitsukawa. Joe Jo is very much American in terms of how he speaks, but in thoughts, ideals, and videos, his heritage as an Asian-American is obviously very important to him. Although his videos are about funny experiences, ways of life, and the culture of Asians and Asian-Americans, they say much about the kind of mentality Asian people face. Most of his videos are made and delivered through his YouTube channel, which he co-founded with friend and business partner Barton Kwan (Bart). Together, they co-founded the YouTube channel JustKiddingFilms in August of 2007.

Originally, both Joe and Bart wanted to pursue careers in medicine; however, after the success of their viral videos, they decided to vlog full-time. Now, they have several other channels, including JustKiddingGamer, JustKiddingParty, and JustKiddingNews. They also wanted to share their success and set up an internship program for talented vloggers like them. To date, 4 million people follow Joe, as he has continued to increase fame and fortune through his videos.
