Joe Jitsukawa is a serial entrepreneur, comedian, investor, and public speaker. He was born and raised in Los Angeles and grew up surrounded by the growing gang culture in LA.

Tired of the regular 9-5 job, Joe quit and co-founded JustKiddingFilms, a comedy YouTube channel in 2007. Through this channel, Joe and his team of friends shoot comedic sketches through which they teach good things β€œin a bad way.” JustKiddingNews has almost two million subscribers.

Besides YouTube, Joe has also found success in different business ventures, such as apparel, consulting, e-commerce, and investing. He likes advising and investing in several businesses, including a growing matcha franchise in LA called Junbi.

Passionate about helping others, Joe created a free online education platform called Joemalian Academy that now provides over 20 thousand students with basic life skills and self-improvement education.
