I Help Beginners Build Profitable Websites
Welcome to the ultimate analysis of Garn Comedy for 2023.
I truly admire the success of many Aussie YouTube creators who have insights that we can learn from.
The goal of these profiles is to show you the different ways people have built 6 and 7-figure careers. I hope to inspire you to create your own success online, starting today.
Garn Comedy Facts
💡Full Name and Age
Declan Evanson (age 25) who does all the writing/scripting/directing.
Declan went to Film School in Townsville and roped his brother into some videos that went viral.
Connor Evanson (age 23) who is the iconic comedian known as Murph you see on YouTube, Facebook, TikTok and Instagram.
Connor is actually an electrician by trade, so when he’s not on the tools, he’s running the Garn YouTube channel alongside his brother Declan on the side.
🤑 Net Worth
YouTubers are typically wealthy, but this isn’t the case here…
As of 2023, Garn Comedy has a net worth of $170,000 Australian dollars.
This is based on the value of their profitable online business, camera equipment and personal cars.
So by uploading funny videos for 3 years, they’ve carved out a unique niche in the market and aren’t simply copying other comedian’s videos.
Their more like comedy filmmakers than traditional standup comedians. No stand-up gigs with these lads!
🤩 Income Streams
YouTube ads, Patreon, merchandise sales and beer donations.
Uniquely, they still live at their parents’ home in Townsville, but their exact address remains unclear.
They’re funny, relatable to many Australians and have worked hard to build their business.
❌ Notable Complaints
They’ve upset some conservative Victorians. 😅
🚀 The X-Factor
📈 Creator Trends
Their channel continues to blow up.
They have followed the ‘less is more’ philosophy so they only release a new video once or twice per month, rather than spamming the social media algorithms.
And this is why each video performs so well!
🕵🏻♂️ Private Life
Declan and Connor haven’t talked about their girlfriends.
They do plan to go full-time with Garn eventually once the big bucks start rolling in.
👨🏻💻 My Verdict
One of the most hilarious channels around town! (pun intended)
I’m Joshua Smith from Australia. I have been building profitable content sites since 2011.
Today, in addition to managing my own portfolio, I actively help others on their journey.
How much does Garn Comedy make and how?
Through their hilarious YouTube videos, Garn Comedy makes $6,000 to $7,000 per month with their content but on their bad months, it’s more like $3,000 to $4,000.
This proves that you can get paid well to share a laugh with others.
Although it’s not quite enough to quit their jobs just yet. As Declan has stated to me:
“I’m pretty sure like 90% of our subscribers actually make more than we do hahaha. We pay ourselves $350 bucks a week and the rest is spent on equipment and props / uniforms and all the sh*t we buy & make for our videos / a rented office we work out of“
So it’s definitely a profitable side hustle for them, but it does take a ton of work.
The Evanson brothers make money ultimately through:
➜ YouTube ads, although 60% of their videos are demonetized due to excessive swearing (unsurprising really 😂)
➜ More than 300 subscribers to their Patreon account
➜ Sales of their official merchandise (T-shirts, key tags and stickers)
While they do videos about large franchises and chain stores here in Australia, they aren’t paid for any of these. No corporate sponsorship deals here!
Just a few years ago, Garn was totally unknown. And yet, here we are. Once you watch one video and are left with stitches, you’ll end up watching them all!
So why do most of their videos go viral?
➜ They say what we’re all thinking
➜ They know their target market so well
➜ Their work ethic is remarkable
➜ They just want to share a good laugh
And they have become so popular, that they’ve been talked about in pubs across Australia. 🍻
Creator Red Flags
Garn has certainly generated some controversy. They’ve pissed off people who are so serious in life and never have a laugh. But you know, they don’t give a f*** and just want to share some humour.
I’m so inspired by their success on YouTube. Their videos are super-scripted, super-choreographed comedy shorts that take Declan about a month to write/produce. We see Connor as the main star of the channel, yet it’s Declan who’s doing the bulk of the work behind the scenes.
Even once an idea is formed, each video takes hours to film and edit too, with many hilarious outtakes! So their hourly rate is probably far less than many tradies.
But yet, they keep going hard and know that it’ll pay off in a big way eventually!
From watching so many Garn videos, there are key lessons that can propel our lives forward, both on a business and personal level.
My key takeaways include:
➜ You CAN turn your passion into a profitable online business
➜ Results come to those who work hard (and avoid taking profits too early)
➜ The best comedians come are right here Queensland 😜
And of course, if you’re going to build something remarkable online, then surround yourself with the right people for your journey.
