Dan Howell aka danisnotonfire is a British YouTube creator, BBC Radio 1 presenter and self-described "Internet cult leader".
Dan came out as gay in a video in June 2019.
Dan was born in 1991. His early life and teenage experiences are often subjects of his videos, many of which are in his series "Reasons Why Dan's a Fail." He went to university for law, but dropped out after two years.
Dan uploaded his first video in October 2009, entitled "HELLO INTERNET." His intro from that video, which involves him saying "My name is Dan" while making square brackets with his hands, has evolved into somewhat of a meme within the Phandom. Dan is also very embarrassed by it. His channel increased steadily in popularity for some time.
His first video with Phil was Phil is Not On Fire, a collaborative Q&A video. It has eight and a half million views as of August 2019.
