Jermaine Johnson (born August 7, 1980 in Opelika), known professionally as "FunnyMaine", is a stand-up comedian and YouTube celebrity.

Johnson graduated from Jackson-Olin High School and attended Stillman College and the University of Alabama. He began performing stand-up in 2005 and considers the Comedy Club Stardome to be his home field. He has appeared as an afternoon personality on 95.7 JAMZ for several years and was also a regular guest on the Roy Wood Jr Morning Show. His performances have been featured on Bounce's "Uptown Comic" and Kevin Hart's "Hart of the City". In addition he has acted on TBS' "Sullivan and Son," and BET's ""Being Mary Jane".

Shortly after Alabama's loss to the Ole Miss Rebels in 2014, Johnson uploaded his first "How Bama Fans Watch Games" video to YouTube. The video got an instant positive reaction, so he has continued it for every Crimson Tide football game since, building a social media audience that has numbered in the millions.
