Philip Michael Lester (Born January 30 1987 (1987-01-30) (age 28)) known on YouTube as AmazingPhil, is an English YouTube video blogger and radio presenter. He was born in Rossendale, Lancashire, England and he has been making videos since 2006. He currently lives in London, England, with fellow YouTuber, and best friend, Dan Howell (Danisnotonfire).  He reached 1 million subscribers on 6th of July 2013. Phil is 6'2" tall (6ft 2in).

Phil uploaded his first vlog on March 26, 2006 and it was called, "Phil's Video Blog - 27th March 2006"

His favorite animals are lions; a recurring theme in his videos is that he has a little stuffed lion (named Lion) in the background. At the end, it's used to show in full view with speech bubble annotations, as if Lion is talking although now he has a segment called 'Draw Phil Naked' where viewers send in their drawings of him naked yet somehow covered up that he chooses from and shows. He calls his subscribers 'Phillions'. Phil is known for not swearing in his videos due to having a young viewer demographic. Phil is well known for being very innocent and is often mocked about this by Dan.

His favourite band is Muse; Phil and Dan are huge fans of Muse, and their favourite album by the band is 'Origin of Symmetry.' His favourite Pokemon is Jolteon which he announced on January 25th, 2014. He once had a pet shrimp called Simon that came in a packet of "prehistoric Triops", and who died on May 3rd, 2011. Phil's favourite colour is blue.

A famous quote from Phil is, "It's a good thing to be strange; normalness leads to sadness."

He is known to be very wise and very open to his subscribers about his life.

Phil has become part of the famous "Fantastic Foursome", a group of English YouTubers which includes Dan Howell (aka danisnotonfire), Chris Kendall (aka crabstickz), and PJ Liguori (aka KickThePj). It is not clear whether they have stopped being friends or if it was just a falling out. Chris Kendall has mentioned several times that the "Fantastic Foursome" was never a thing.

Along with Dan, he is also one of the presenters of the Super Amazing Project, a YouTube video series from My Damn Channel, encompassing scary/freaky happenings sent in by viewers, challenges between the two presenters, and strange news from the previous week. The show spanned for three series, however Dan confirmed in a YouNow broadcast that except for seasonal specials, there will be no series 4. It's legacy was carried to their radio show. They have made another joint channel called DanAndPhilGAMES where they play games and record it.

Phil has a second channel, named "LessAmazingPhil " where he uploads videos that are either too short or not relevant to anything that he would upload onto his main channel.

He has also been in a movie called "Faintheart". He was also in an Oreo advert, which was advertising the Oreo Lick Race. It included clips of Phil and Danisnotonfire doing their Oreo Lick Race, along with other YouTubers. It has since been deleted for the reason that it was not made clear that the video was an advertisement.One of which is also another friend of Phil's, who's YouTube name is KickThePJ.
