The Smosh Family, also known as the Smosh Fam, is the term used to describe the entirety of the Smosh and Smosh Games cast members. The name originated from the group's tendency to refer to themselves as a family and is currently used both by fans and by Smosh itself.
Below is a list of all current and former Smosh Family members.
Out of the fifteen official Smosh members, most come from either California or Ohio. All current and former members now officially reside in Los Angeles, CA.
Anthony, Ian, Mari, Jovenshire, Olivia, Noah and Courtney all grew up in California. Anthony and Ian are both from Sacramento, Noah comes from San Fernando Valley, Courtney comes from Thousand Oaks, Olivia grew up in Arcadia, Mari is from San Francisco, and Joven is from Hollywood.
Lasercorn, Wes and Keith all come from Ohio. Lasercorn is from "the Cleveland area", and Keith is from the city of Middletown, but he and Wes both grew up in Cincinnati.
Damien grew up in Georgia. He has lived in Peachtree City and Atlanta.
Shayne comes from Arizona, but he lived in Virginia for four years and moved to California when he was sixteen.
Mari was the first Smosh Family member other than Ian or Anthony to be introduced. She is also the only newer member who didn't originally join as a part of Smosh Games or the Smosh Squad.
In keeping with this, Mari was initially sometimes known as the "third Smosh member".
Though most of the cast met after being hired by Smosh, many of the later cast members knew each other prior to working there.
Joven, Lasercorn, Sohinki, Flitz and Wes met while working at MahaloGames, a YouTube brand they all worked on for several years. Joven, Lasercorn and Sohinki later left Mahalo to work for Clevver Games, before they were hired together by Ian and Anthony to form Smosh Games.
Shayne and Noah met in 2009 through acting classes.
Shayne and Damien met on the set of So Random!, a Disney Channel spinoff show, and were living together at the time of Shayne's Smosh audition. It was Shayne who later got Damien a job at Smosh Games.
Courtney and Olivia knew each other through their Vine work, and Olivia encouraged Courtney to attend the Smosh audition.
Lasercorn is the oldest member of the Smosh Family, and Noah is the youngest. There is an age gap between them of roughly twelve and a half years.
In total, three members of the Smosh Family are married. Lasercorn was engaged before he joined Smosh Games and married soon after joining, Joven got married in late 2017 and Mari got married in April 2018.
Coincidentally, all three are from the original Smosh Games lineup, meaning by default both that nobody in the Smosh Squad (or the new Smosh Games lineup) is married yet and that the only original Smosh Games member to be unmarried is Sohinki.
As well as being the first to get married, Lasercorn is also the only member who has a child.
Prior to 2017, it seemed to be an unwritten rule that all Smosh Games members had to use some kind of nickname as their online persona. The first member to join who wasn't known as something other than their given name was Damien.
Mari and Wes's names still apply to this rule, as they use nicknames for their online work rather than their full first names. However, they are unique among the first seven Smosh Games members for using a shortened version of their real names as a nickname, though both have used longer online names in the past.
None of the Smosh Squad use nicknames on a regular basis.
Almost every Smosh Family member has at least one sibling, whether fully related or only on one side.
Ian and Damien each have one older sister.
Olivia has one younger half-sister.
Sohinki and Noah both have two older brothers.
Shayne also has two brothers (sometimes identified as his half-brothers).
Joven and Lasercorn both have at least one brother.
Mari has one older brother.
Anthony has two half-brothers.
Keith has three sisters and one half-brother. He has also had a total of six step-siblings.
Wes and Courtney are both one of seven children.
Wes is known to have two younger brothers and one younger sister (at least two of which may be his half-siblings), and Courtney has three older sisters and three brothers (one older, two younger).
Flitz apparently has several half-siblings.
Boze has never explicitly mentioned whether or not she has siblings. According to Famous Birthdays, she has one brother and one sister.
