Epic Fail by Sean Fausz is a show starring the Transmission Awesome host where he finds the worst videos on Youtube ever and comments on them. The idea came about after a conversation with a friend of his and over time, he posted the videos on both Youtube and By late January of 2009, he became a featured show on the site and now brings the site the worst videos ever lampooned. The show is part of Channel Awesome.

What is an Epic Fail?

An epic fail according to Sean is "A video that is incredibly bad, or consists of something so idiotic it just shouldn't be conceived in the mind of human nature. But sometimes I'll add in videos that are just randomly hilarious, such as the Darth Vader being a Jerk video from my (then) latest epic fail."


Usually before each episode, Sean is seen playing various games before deciding to go on with the show.
