Charlie Todd is one of the most successful video creators in the YouTube age, with an astonishing 250 million views to his name. A master of viral communication, Charlie has been churning out million-view hits since the dawn of web video.
In 2001, Charlie Todd founded the comedy collective Improv Everywhere, a New York group that pioneered public performances in the digital age. Unlike the “flash mob” craze that grew in Improv Everywhere’s wake, Charlie’s projects are site-specific, uniquely hilarious, and continuing to break new ground.
A master of viral communication and improvisation.

Charlie now regularly stages simultaneous international events in over fifty countries at a time, garnering massive news media coverage. His style is constantly mimicked by brands and advertisers around the world, but his ability to pull off projects with thousands of synchronized performers remains unmatched.
