―Casually Explained

James "Jamie" (born: February 9, 1996 (1996-02-09) [age 25]), better known online as Casually Explained, is a Canadian YouTuber known for creating short, humorous, animated instructional videos using sarcasm and irony to explain how to perform everyday tasks.

Personal life

Jamie was born on February 9, 1996[1][2] in Canada. He is a non-graduate alumni of the University of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada, after he took one year of engineering.[3][4] He spent five months in Lyon, France, taking a French language course.[5]


Casually Explained creates short, comedic, animated videos that sarcastically describe everyday things such as tipping, relationships, and other every day topics in a dry and deadpan tone. He uses a rudimentary and elementary art style, typically using stick-figures to represent his characters.


The name "Casually Explained" was named after his attempt to casually explain math, primarily, because at the time he was being inspired by math YouTubers, while studying math in post-secondary school. However, on December 8, 2015, he made his first recognition by ironically explaining how to sketch a polynomial function.[6]
