Who is Adi Fishman?

Adi Fishman was born in Los Angeles, California US on 11 August 2000, so under the zodiac sign of Leo and holding American nationality – he rose to fame after he amassed a great number of subscribers on his YouTube channel.

Early life and education

Adi grew up in California with his parents, his older brother Tal, and his older sister Shani – he prefers to keep the details about his family to himself and therefore nothing else is known about them. During one of his Q&A videos, Adi stated how he wanted to be a doctor when he was still a kid because he wanted to help people, but his career path changed as the years went by.

He is now attending his fourth year of studies at his local high school but is unsure whether or not he is going to enroll at college.

Career of a YouTuber

Adi’s career began at the very moment he launched his YouTube channel – entitled “Free Time” – on 26 April 2014 –a collaboration project between himself, his brother Tal, and their friends DangMattSmith and Hunter Rowland. They mostly upload humorous videos of them doing all kind of things, while their favorites are the ‘challenge videos’ such as the popular ‘ice bucket challenge’ and ‘floor is lava’. “Free Time” is currently followed by nearly 1.8m people, while it has attracted more than 66 million views on all its videos combined – the most viewed video on the channel is “This Straw Can Filter Anything (Yes Even Including…)” as it has been viewed around 6.4 million times.

Tal, Adi’s brother, has a YouTube channel entitled “Reaction Time” on which he uploads videos of himself and other people doing random things – the channel is very popular as it has over 12.5 million subscribers, and has accumulated nearly four billion views on all its videos combined.

Adi has another YouTube channel called “Tal and Short”, which he launched together with his brother Tal on 18 June 2018, and the brothers have so far gathered around 11,000 followers and nearly 218,000 views on all their videos – they also upload only funny content but the videos don’t resemble those they upload on their “Free Time” channel.

Tal Fishman

Adi’s brother Tal is 3.5 years older than him as he was born on 27 December 1996 under the zodiac sign of Capricorn – Tal is better known as Reaction Time as that’s the name of his very popular YouTube channel.

Tal’s style of making videos differs from Adi’s style – Tal doesn’t react on other videos but rather reacts to random photos and other things he finds on the Internet. He edits most of his videos by adding special effects, and often features his two close friends Michael and Anthony as well as his brother Adi.

Tal is also part of another YouTube channel which is called “Mike and Anthony” – although his name is not there, he is also a member of the team judging by the channel’s description which reads ‘Hello and welcome to Game Time! We are three friends that just love playing games and having fun doing it…’ The channel was launched on 19 January 2016 and so far has around 1.2 million subscribers and been viewed over 100 million times, all the videos combined.

Tal is currently attending college, and just as his brother, he prefers to keep his personal matters to himself and hasn’t shared anything about his former or private affairs with the public. He is active on multiple other social media platforms – he launched his Twitter account in April 2016 and has so far gathered over 150,000 followers and tweeted nearly 1,000 times. Judging by his tweets, Tal is a big fan of the “Avengers” movies, and has enjoyed the final par entitled “Avengers: The Endgame”. His Instagram account is followed by over 1.1 million people while he also has a Facebook page which has over 70,000 fans. He runs his own website on which he sells his Timeless brand merchandise – at one point he was selling a stuffed toy called “Alfredo the Hedgehog”, and it was so loved that he ran out of stock and had to postpone delivery for those who pre-purchased the toy.

Adi’s personal life and relationships

Adi is quite secretive when it comes to his personal matters and his past and present relationships – he loves bonding with the audience and making them laugh, but still doesn’t share details regarding his love life. He was said to be dating Emily Alexander but these were only rumors and Adi has not confirmed them but neither has he denied them. He appears to be currently dating someone, as he posted a picture with her on his Instagram account on Valentine’s Day. However, he’s never married and doesn’t have any kids.

Likes and other interests

Even though Adi’s career of a YouTuber requires him to spend a lot of time in front of the PC screen, he still finds time to spend outdoors as that’s what he enjoys doing the most. He is very sportive and likes to play several sports with his friends – he is also a big fan of cars and drives a BMW convertible, although he’d prefer to drive a Porsche 911 Turbo S, as it’s his favorite car. His celebrity crush is Madison Beer, an American actress and singer born in 1999, who he finds very attractive.

Appearance and net worth

Adi is currently 18 years old. He has short brown hair and brown eyes, while his height and weight are not known. According to authoritative sources, Adi’s current net worth is estimated to be around $500,000 and will surely rise as he is earning money from his YouTube channels on a daily basis.

Social media presence

Adi is quite active on two of the most popular social media networks on the Internet – he launched his Twitter account in April 2014, and has so far gathered over 36,000 followers and tweeted nearly 4,000 times. His Instagram account is followed by over 260,000 people, but he’s only uploaded around 60 pictures.

1[on beginning a script] I fight against the white on the page and the conventional thoughts that inevitably fill it first.
2[on writing] I'm inspired by the synchronicity of life. The moments that take our breath away, where we're on the edge of our seat and our eyes forced to well up
3[on Oprah about loving the crew]: I had about two hundred aunts and uncles who taught me everything I needed to know. The women taught me to be a hopeless romantic and the men taught me to be a strong willed man.
4My goal is to not only earn good work as an actor, but hopefully write and produce good work for others.
5I've always tried to be a positive example of the Entertainment Industry and overcome the perceived negative connotations of growing up a "Child Star". It was important to everyone from the show that all of us kids on Roseanne grow up to be responsible adults.
6Losing Quinny (Glenn Quinn) was a devastating for me. Glenn could light up any room, even the darkest night. His absence made me think about what I wanted in life and how short our time is. He sparked my return to acting. I think about him all the time.
7On raising his younger brother: "In a lot of ways we grew together. Taking care of him helped me matured. In so many ways he's like my first kid. Matthew would be the first to tell you I was strict and fair. I made all my really big parenting mistakes with him. My kids reap the benefits of that experience".
8I love being an actor. As a kid you know black and white, anger and happiness. Kids usually don't have the life experience to paint all the shades of gray. I was a happy kid living a dream surrounded by great people on Roseanne. Life teaches each of us nuanced conflicting emotion. I'm stronger personally and professionally from all my life experience.
9Hopefully I can be one more positive example of a person who grew up in this Industry and handled it with dignity and humility.
10As a child actor it's important to follow the examples of people like Ron Howard and Jodie Foster who not only have been successful as adults but as members of society.
