—Hobo Bros, Official channel slogan

Hobo Bros is SMG4's meme and gaming channel. It features Luke and his brother, Kevin, as they play games and react to memes. This channel replaced his older gaming channel "SMG4 Gaming" (formerly known as "SMG4's Second Channel").

Hobo Bros. uploaded their first video on December 6, 2016, which contains a gameplay of Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 64. The same day, SMG4 released promotion for Hobo Bros on his channel.

Along with SMG4, Hobo Bros is a member of the YouTube group Minus World, which also includes DPadGamer, Nintendrew, TetraBitGaming, Nathaniel Bandy, Nicobbq, SimpleFlips, SwankyBox, and Charriii5.

Hobo Bros Series

Hobo Bros has three major series that appear on the channel. This does not include any video game series.

Hobo Theatre

Hobo Theatre revolves around the world of Garry's Mod (GMod for short). Typically, Kevin and Luke create stories using the said program, which usually turns out weird. Only ragdolls are used in this series. The first episode of this series aired on December 3, 2016.

Hobo Amigos

Hobo Amigos functions exactly like the regular Hobo Bros program, but two new members are added into the mix. The two new members are Martin and Harry, both who are the editors for SMG4 and Hobo Bros. The first episode of this series aired on July 3, 2017, with a gameplay of Mario Party 10. On April 30, 2018, Luke announced the end of the series because of Harry's departure. It was briefly revived upon Martin's departure on February 19, 2019.

Hobo Pod

Hobo Pod is a radio-like station. In this series, Kevin and Luke discuss various topics, both random and important. This series is very rare, with only five episodes as of February 2018.
