Vote up the top YouTubers who originally became famous on Vine.

Is it really any surprise there are so many YouTubers who started on Vine? Before YouTube became the go-to video sharing site, millions of people gained fame uploading short, funny videos to the now largely debunked Vine. As the platform began to wind down, many of the funniest Vine celebrities were forced to jump ship and open YouTube accounts. For a full list of funny Viners who became funny YouTubers, browse the names below. 

Which Vine stars eventually made the switch and became YouTubers? The widely popular - and at times controversial - Logan Paul actually started out as a Vine star. There are also Vine comedians who became YouTubers, like Jason Nash. Many other YouTubers, like King Bach, Lele Pons, and Gabbie Hanna, were relatively famous from Vine before making the switch to YouTube. There are lots of girl Viners on this list, like Amanda Cerny and Liza Koshy. Many funny YouTube stars who began on Vine have since gone on to become some of the most popular YouTubers under 25, others took their accounts to TikTok and kept the Vine energy going on a new platform.
