Keith Hodge and Kevin Hodge (born September 17, 1975) known professionally as the Hodgetwins, are American YouTubers, comedians and actors. They are twins known for their use of blue comedy and profanity. As well as their catchphrases.

As of May 2019, they have at least 1.2 million subscribers across all three of their main YouTube channels.

Early lives[edit]

Keith and Kevin Hodge were born in Martinsville, Virginia. Growing up poor, one happiness they found was making people laugh. They said they were always “those guys who made people laugh.” They eventually worked their way to college and both got degrees in accounting from the American InterContinental University.[1] While they were working at the insurance company, they started making videos on YouTube. However, noticing they were getting many views on their early videos, they both decided to quit their jobs at the insurance company to begin making YouTube videos full-time.[2]

Internet careers[edit]

YouTube[edit]

The Hodges created their first YouTube channel TheHodgetwins on December 21, 2008.[3] Their first video was titled Fighting In The Restroom Comedy Sketch @hodgetwins, uploaded 4 days later, on Christmas. Occasionally uploading comedy sketches and life stories for a few years, they first started gaining a lot of attention in 2010 when they created their TwinMuscleWorkouts channel.[4] They began uploading advice on intermittent fasting and working out.[5][6]

They've appeared on Steven Crowder's show, Louder with Crowder, a few times.[7][8]

Political views[edit]

The Hodges were always private about their political views, but in 2018, they opened up as Conservatives and supporters of US President Donald Trump.[9] This has been controversial among their fans since blacks have predominantly been liberals in the past.[10] “Well, we lost a lot of black fans,” they said. “Our shows used to bring in a good mix — black, white, Hispanic — but now, it looks like a Bruce Springsteen concert.”[11] On May 19, 2019, they commented on model Emily Ratajowski's use of nudity on her Instagram profile to protest abortions, which a lot of people supported their opinion and agreed with them.[12][13]
