He’s the man behind big viral hits like ‘Carpool Karaoke’ and ‘Drop the Mic’. He became friends with the famous tv-host James Corden, when they were 18 years old and Ben took James from ridiculed in England to revered in America with ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’. Ben and  is an eight-time Emmy Award winner, and a 24 time nominee. In 2019, he was the most Emmy nominated individual, with 8 nominations.

The viral hitmaker says to Insider.com:

I don’t think you can ever say, 'I want this to be a viral hit.' You say, 'I want to make this bit really funny.' With YouTube, there is no schedule, there is no lead-in, there is no timeslot. The best stuff rises to the top.
