Lucas Cruikshank Bio
Birthdate: August 23, 1993
Birthplace: Columbus, Nebraska
Actor, Comedian, Director
Lucas is all three—and he can dance as well! The quadruple-threat has won our hearts online and is set to take Hollywood by storm. So far his YouTube channel has record-breaking subscriptions with over 200 million viewers, and he’s made cameos on TV shows like Nickeodeon’s iCarly.
You’d know that voice anywhere! Fred Frigglehorn is Lucas’ Internet sensation: a hyper, troubled and maybe (a little) annoying six-year-old with a small problem keeping his feelings in check. Fred’s day-to-day life is hilarious and frantic, from his crush on kindergarten classmate Judy to dealing with his just-out-of-rehab mom – all done double-time, as Lucas’ own voice is sped-up in the videos to make him sound more like a six-year-old.
Fred started as a way to poke fun at his younger brothers wild antics and is also to sort of make fun of video bloggers who tell everyone a little too much about themselves and “think that everyone is so interested in them.”
Fred: The Movie
Fred: The Movie has just premiered on Nickelodeon. Plus, Lucas has already agreed to a sequel and has released a Fred album called Who’s Ready to Party?
