Tyler Oakley releases his documentary “Snervous” on iTunes, Google Play and in select theaters on Friday, Dec. 11. An advanced screening of the film will be shown at Angelika Film Center (2911 District Ave., Fairfax, Va.) on Thursday, Dec. 10 at 7:30 p.m.
Oakley, 26, has more than seven million subscribers on YouTube and has garnered more than 500 million total views on all his videos put together.
“I’m not making skits, I’m not making films. So in that sense I guess you could call it like a personality,” Oakley says in the trailer.
The YouTube star has made a name for himself doing silly things with his friends and family. Some of his most popular videos include him watching his own birth with his mother, eating chicken nuggets with his best friend, lip synching to Nicki Minaj and getting drunk while trying to spell words.
Oakley has also been an advocate for helping LGBT youth and is very involved in the Trevor Project, hosting an annual Trevor Project fundraiser every year.
The documentary chronicles his rise to fame from YouTube and the national tour he embarked on to meet fans as a result. It also takes a look at his personal life and how being gay affected his life growing up and his relationship with his father.
Oakley, along with his friend fellow gay YouTuber Korey Kuhl, will appear as a team on the next season of “The Amazing Race.”
