In his youth, Roman was employed at Atwood Rope, a family-run rope factory business. He then would launch a series of DVDs titled “The Nerd Herd.” Roman also became involved in the Columbus, Ohio entertainment scene by working on an array of film projects and television commercials.
Roman decided to create a YouTube channel called “Sketch Empire” so he could have an outlet for his passion of comedy. Due to the success of the channel, it was renamed to “RomanAtwood.” Recording numerous prank videos with friends and family members, Roman has been able to generate hundreds of millions of views and garner more than 10 million subscribers. His second channel, “RomanAtwoodVlogs,” has also been a major success with more than 10 million subscribers.
The success of his YouTube channel has allowed Roman to launch own merchandise line called “Smile More.” In October 2016, Roman launched his own mobile game series called “SMILE Inc.” He was also able to release a motion picture through Lionsgate called “Natural Born Pranksters.” Roman is now on a live world tour with fellow YouTube star Yousef Erakat.
Some have started to accuse Roman of staging prank videos. The likes of YouTube stars Philip DeFranco and The Prank Reviewer have alleged that Roman and Yousef have posted videos using actors. If correct, this would violate YouTube’s policy of misleading content. This has become a common issue on YouTube these days.
