In this edition of East Idaho Newsmakers, Nate Eaton speaks with YouTube star Stuart Edge.

Five years ago, Edge was cleaning porta-potties – the crappiest job ever. As he cleaned, Stuart dreamed of creating videos that not only made people laugh, but feel inspired as well.

Ever since his first video went viral December 2012, he’s been able to do just that. Edge continues to exercise his creativity as an entertainer and storyteller through magic, music, dance and acting.

His videos have been viewed over 425 million times with constant viral hits being produced by the Utah native. He’s appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Good Morning America, Extra and numerous other shows.

Watch the video above to see the entire conversation.
