Ed Bassmaster (born February 4, 1973), previously known as Eddie Joansteinis, is an American comedian. He runs a famous YouTube channel, recording hidden-camera pranks and taking on several personas and alter egos.[1] Bassmaster has collaborated with Jack Vale, KaiserSozeTV, RomanAtwood Pranks, PrankvsPrank, and MagicofRahat to create some of his previous videos.[2] As of June 18, 2014, his channel has about 1.6 million subscribers and over 400 million views, making him one of the most popular pranksters on the Internet.[3] He is married and has three children.

Bassmaster created his most popular video, which was called the "Zombie Drive-Thru Prank", in which he transformed himself to appear as a zombie frightening employees at random fast food restaurants.[4] Much of his most famous pranks have involved a drive-thru, while some of his other creations have featured Jack Vale's farting device— the Pooter. Some of the personalities that Ed Bassmaster has acted as include a homeless vagabond, Always Teste, and the Ugly Face. On June 14, 2012, he released a song called "Gotta iPhone," featuring Always Teste. The music video would not gain instant popularity.[5]
