Cody Michael Kolodziejzyk (born: November 22, 1990 ), better known online as Cody Ko, is a Canadian YouTuber, actor, comedian, rapper and podcast host primarily known for his comedy videos. He is also known for being part of the music and podcasting duo Tiny Meat Gang (along with Noel Miller).
He created his YouTube account and published his first video, titled "My #firstpost on YouTube dot com!" on May 29, 2014, and since then has gained several millions of subscribers.
Cody Ko was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on November 22, 1990, to Helen and Greg Kolodziejzyk. He graduated from Springbank Community High School in 2008 and went on to attend Duke University, where he was a member of the Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity. He graduated with a degree in computer science in 2012.
In March 2012, Kolodziejzyk created an iPhone application named "I'd Cap That," which he began as a personal project before it was released to the public on the App Store shortly after. The application became viral, attracting four million users within four months of its release.
After graduating from Duke, Cody began working as an iOS developer and engineer from 2012 to 2015, before working at Fullscreen Inc as a senior iOS engineer until late 2016.
On April 3, 2013, Cody joined Vine, where he became popular for creating brief comedy skits. Cody launched his YouTube channel in May 2014, where he initially created vlogs and would collaborate with other YouTube stars, including Tana Mongeau, Alexis G. Zall, Corinna Kopf, and more.
He later became popular for creating commentary videos and collaborating with former Viner Noel Miller. The duo later became known as Tiny Meat Gang and began producing music in 2017.
On October 24, 2019, it was announced that Ko and Miller had signed to Arista Records.
Jake Paul Controversy
In May 2019, Jake Paul tried calling Cody out as a "bully" and confronted him in person, but it was almost universally agreed upon that Jake was just trying to stir up senseless drama. This was evident by Jake's "expose" video garnering over 600k dislikes and only about 70k likes, and Cody spiking in half a million subscribers within days.
