Joel Bergs

Social Sultan, Commentary King

As Joel would say: G’day legends.

If you’re a newbie to the world of Joel Bergs, then here’s your introduction to this Aussie social media sensation whose TikTok account @joelbergs is one of the most watched in Australia. Let’s spill Joel’s beans.

Bergs has been captivating millions of fans with his infectious sense of humour and easy charm since 2014. He was one of the O.G. influencers on Vine before killing it on TikTok and amassing tens of millions of appreciative followers. When he’s not entertaining the world, you might spot Joel playing basketball or golf, or shooting the breeze in the halls of Joe Fortune.


What does a perfect Buck’s party look like (when you’re not the Buck !)?

It begins with 18 holes of golf. Then that rolls into a house party with scantily clad waitresses everywhere.

What’s the most trouble you got yourself into at school?

I stole the keys from the school groundskeeper, drank all the wine he had stashed in the shed and was extremely drunk for the rest of the day.

You’re cornered by Cocaine Bear. Quick! What do you do?

Give it a bag [of cocaine ] for distraction – and then run!

What are *your* shameless indulgences?

Unexpected pub/punt sessions with the lads! And boobs.

Everyone likes giving advice. What are your words of wisdom  for our readers?

Be Unique, Not a Sheep! (BUNS)

You get a call from some corporate type, asking for a character reference for Joe Fortune. What do you tell them?

Joe is one of the lads! A reliable, trustworthy bloke – and is always fun to be around.

Who’s your “Hall Pass”?

Alexandra Daddario [of, ahem, Hall Pass fame]. Those eyes!!!

Digging Deep

Joel Bergs burst forth into the world on February 21, 1990 in Melbourne. Before killing it on the socials, he scored himself a four-year basketball scholarship at Stetson University in Florida. In 2022 he collaborated with brands like Activision Call of Duty, Playstation, Bang Energy, Kraken Rum Australia.

Notches On The Belt

Joel’s affinity for entertainment came early in 2014 on Vine, with his first ever Vine video called “Think I Mastered the Art of Golf”. Before the platform collapsed, Bergs had over 250,000 followers.

Joel picked himself up, dusted himself off and plugged into TikTok in 2019, where his lol-inducing content struck comedic gold. His follower count shot up into the millions, with 11.6 million of them and counting.

Joel’s Mojo Risin’

Joel tells it like it is. He gets real with his audience and holds nothing back with his edgy and distinct brand of humour.

Plenty of social media personalities could make the same claim, but what makes all the difference, despite the frequent sarcasm, is that Joel is genuine leather; a real, authentic guy. You can’t fake that.

Kid’s Got A Future

Who knows; with Joel’s oyster as his world, he could be on the verge of signing off his own reality TV show, where you might find him snorting cayenne pepper, streaking during an AFL semi-final or shooting for a Guinness World Record by not laughing for 17 days straight. At Joe’s, it’s anyone’s bet.
