Malaysian vlogger Tanesh Vijayagomaran may be considered a successful and popular YouTuber today for his many comedy videos, but he laughingly admits that when he first started posting on YouTube many years ago, his videos were “awful and embarrassing”.

“When I was around 13, I was a huge fan of American comedian Ryan Higa who did comedy videos on his YouTube channel Nigahiga. So I started a channel and created similar videos, but they were terrible and I deleted them soon after because I was so embarrassed, ” reveals the 25-year-old from Klang.
