Most web series have a running plot line, but some have different episodes every week; sometimes they are rants and sometimes they are comedy skits, but they are always fun to watch. This is what Jenna Mourey does. She runs her YouTube channel, JennaMarbles. She got the Marbles added to her name for YouTube purposes after one of her two adorable dogs. In her early YouTube career, one of her videos, How To Trick People Into Thinking You’re Good Looking, got over 5.3 million views in the first week, and another video of hers, How To Avoid Talking To People You Don’t Want To Talk To, was featured on multiple news shows and racked up the views. She has over nine million subscribers, and over a billion total views on her YouTube channel.
There is no real, set plot line for Jenna Marbles, she just makes up her own comedic skits like What Girls Do While Driving and the guy version of that. She has been putting out a new video every Wednesday (or almost) for more than two years. This has allowed the viewers to know things about her life: her daily activities, vacations she goes on, when she goes out with her friends or has a party, relationship drama and break ups, and her moving from Boston, Massachusetts to Los Angeles, California. With all of this available for the viewers to see and look at, it has become like a real life comedy show, but not all scripted. Most of it is her life, and in some of her rant videos she talks about her problems. She does, however, really have a talent for making other people laugh because most of what she says and does is comedic gold. She had previously been in a relationship with Max No Sleeves for a few years, so that happened in her videos. A lot of Jenna’s comedy circles around her two dogs, Kermit and Mr. Marbles, but it is hilarious anyways. Landshark, in some viewers’ opinions, is the funniest video, because it is not only a comedic skit, but it is also a hilarious and catchy song.
Jenna Marbles posts new videos every Wednesday at some point on her YouTube channel, and on her blog on jennamarblesblog.com where you can find out a whole lot more about her show and her doings than just on her YouTube channel. Jenna Marbles is a hilarious entertainer, and will surely not fade away in the years to come.
