YouTube prankster Ben Phillips, who recently surpassed 1 billion lifetime views on his massively popular channel, is embarking on a tour with his younger brother, Elliot Giles.
Dubbed Ben Vs. Elliot, the monthlong U.K. show will kick off on Sept. 27 in their native Cardiff, and subsequently hit London, Glasgow, Manchester, and more. While interpreting pranks into a live event may sound like a tricky feat, the shows will see the brothers competing in “the ultimate prank war,” they say. Tickets will go on sale at SorryBro.com this Friday.
Phillips (pictured above, right), who is now 26, launched his YouTube channel four short years ago, and has subsequently amassed 15 million followers across Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram thanks to popular recurring series like Prank The Haters and No Prank No Pain. As a young entrepreneur, Phillips has also sought to translate his online fame into offline ventures, including two books — Sorry Bro and School Of Pranks. Giles (pictured above, left), also counts a substantial following, including 526,000 subscribers.
Sorry Bro, told in graphic novel and scrapbook form, recounts the duo’s meteoric rise and also feature interactive elements — and a book tour to support the release marked Phillips’ first time hitting the road. Ben Vs. Elliot marks his second.
