Later, he created another YouTube channel, ‘Addicted A1,’ in which he uploaded commentary videos on gameplays. He used to mimic the Bollywood actors, Shah Rukh Khan and Sunny Deol in his commentary videos, but he failed to get a good number of views and subscribers on his YouTube channel.

Eventually, his channel started getting more views and subscribers, and he decided to change his channel’s name to CarryMinati.
In an interview, he shared his initial journey as a YouTuber, he said,
In 2014, I started with my original channel, Addicted A1. I used to record game play videos with my reactions and upload them. It didn’t get me very far, after a year I had about 35 likes. I then thought of evolving my content, and started CarryDeol. (Does an impression over the phone) It worked well with the audience, the Counter Strike community loved it and shared my work. After six months, I was bored, and needed a change. That’s when I got to my current nice–roasting.”
In 2017, he received a gold play button for crossing 1 million subscribers on his channel. In the same year, he started his another YouTube channel, ‘CarryIsLive.’

Out of nowhere. I was on a Skype call with a friend, studying for the upcoming exams. On one message, saying he’s sent me notes to study, he’d actually sent a video to lighten up the mood. Despite its racy click bait title, I realised there was nothing ‘dirty’ about it and had garnered a high number of views. So I shot a video of my reactions of that video, which people loved.
