“Hey, it’s Fred!” You may know 17-year-old Lucas Cruikshank best as Fred Figglehorn, the character her plays on his YouTube channel. Find out more about how this teen comedian got his start!


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.


Fred Figglehorn

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?


What You Didn’t Know...

  • Lucas’ family lives on a big ranch surrounded by tons of animals.
  • Lucas dreams of meeting and working with director Judd Apatow and would love to meet actress Ellen Page (his fave actress).
  • Lucas first got started making videos on YouTube with his cousins Jon and Katie Smet under the name JKL Productions before he decided to go solo with his Fred videos.
  • Apart from being talented at acting and directing, he’s also been dancing since the fourth grade and takes classes in jazz, tap and hip hop!
