John Patrick Douglass (born June 30, 1988), better known by his online alias jacksfilms, is an American YouTuber, comedian, web-based entertainer, filmmaker and musician.
He began his online career in 2006 when he created his YouTube channel. His channel initially consisted of infomercial parodies, sketches, and comedic music videos. As his audience grew, he expanded into comedy series centered around viewer comments and submissions, such as Your Grammar Sucks (YGS), in which he makes fun of grammatically incorrect YouTube comments, JackAsk, in which he answered questions about himself (often satirically), and Yesterday I Asked You (YIAY /jaɪ/), initially a segment at the end of JackAsk and later became a standalone series, in which he asks questions to his audience, and they give answers. In October 2020, Douglass announced the end of YGS and JackAsk.Douglass also does occasional livestreams on Twitch, where he has two shows on the platform, Are You Funnier Than A Youtuber? and YIAY Live. A live tour for YIAY Live was planned for 2020, but was initially postponed to January 2021, then again later in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
He hosts a YouTube Originals show called YIAY TIME: The Game Show.
