 Phil Lester, aka AmazingPhil, is a 27 year-old London-basedYouTuber and radio presenter best known for being one half of internet and radio duo Dan and Phil, aka PHAN. Obviously their viewers  are 'PHANS' and they are part of  the 'PHANDOM', because that's how the internet works.  Phil was inspired to make his own YouTube videos when he discovered the likes of SMOSH during his college days and with little editing and a less than advanced camera he started his own channel. Phil's videos are classic video blogs with him talking to the camera in his bedroom about anything from listing the things he 'thought that were true that are not true' to the now extremely popular (thanks to Phil) '7 second challenge'. 

Phil then went to university in York and after the death of one of his best friends during his final year Phil was reminded that he needed to take advantage of exciting opportunities rather than shying away from them. After uni Phil soon discovered there was a whole community of YouTubers uploading videos too who inspired him to put even more work in to his videos. Soon after he met  Dan of danisnotonfire, and the rest was history...
 Dan and Phil started living together in Manchester where they filmed more videos together and were given the chance to travel to YouTuber conventions and create radio shows for the BBC. In January 2013 they were giving their own weekly slot on Radio 1 which has more recently featured other popular YouTubers as part of Radio 1's Internet Takeover. Dan and Phil have also recently started their own joint gaming channel quite originally named 'Dan and Phil GAMES'. So it pretty much looks like we'll all be hearing a lot more from Phil and after achieving such success it seems like he is now one of the one's inspiring others to start making their own videos.
