Who is Penguinz0?
Penguinz0 – also known as ‘Cr1TiKaL‘ – is an American Internet celebrity, who is probably most popular for being a YouTube star – he’s found fame not only as a gamer, but as a gaming commentator as well. He is widely recognized for his trademark ‘deep, monotonous voice and absurd humor’, and for running an eponymous YouTube channel which currently counts almost four million subscribers.
Early Life, Childhood and Education
Charles ‘Charlie’ White was born under the zodiac sign of Leo, on the 2nd August 1994, in Florida, USA, and apart from being of American nationality, he is also of white ethnicity.
There is no information about his family’s background, nor about his childhood. As to his educational background, in 2016 he graduated from the University of Tampa, Florida.
Career and Rise to Stardom
Charles publicly dived into the world of online gaming in May 2007, when he opened his YouTube channel named Penguinz0 – the name is inspired by his favorite ‘animal’, the penguin. His first video uploaded in August that year, referred to a glitch in the “Gears of War” video game, but as with several that followed, didn’t receive great attention from the audience.
They were mostly tutorials, focusing on revealing glitches in popular shooting video games, including “Call of Duty”, “Battlefield”, “BioShock” and “Halo 3”
To greater prominence Penguinz0/Cr1TiKaL came in February 2010, when he uploaded a video called “Aliens vs Predator Let Rock Achievement Guide“, in which he provided comments for the first time. His ‘deep voice’ with a huge dose of ‘seriousness’ attracted a vast number of viewers, and earned him first hints of popularity.
This ‘revelation’ opened an entirely new chapter in his on-line career, as he later focused on gaming commentary videos. He began to upload videos with funny moments from popular FPS games, in which he expressed intentional sarcasm, and his ‘absurd’, dry sense of humor – the backbone is the repetition of words ‘titties’ and ‘nipple’ which was fully demonstrated in a streak of videos named “Fun Tactics”.
However, the real breakthrough in Penguinz0’s YouTube career occurred in late 2010, when he uploaded a video entitled “The Most Difficult Game Ever Created Gameplay and Commentary“, about the “QWOP” game.
After being reviewed by colleague, Ray William Johnson, the video quickly gained attention, and so far has been played more than 9.5 million times. Over time, he expanded the content of his uploads from playing and commenting on video games to a variety of podcasts, pranks and challenges, as well as personal Vlogs. Currently, Penguinz0’s eponymous channel counts a total of nearly 2000 videos, which is increasing on an almost daily basis, that have amassed more than 1.2 billion views. Yes, you read it well – 1.2 billion views.
Some of the other current most popular ones include “The Real Edge of Glory” which has been seen nearly seven million times followed by “I Was In Hunger Games And Ruined A Scene” with 8.1 million views, and “Glory Hole Repair” which has gathered over 10.5 million views so far.
Apart from being known for usage of ‘creative curses’ as well as ‘colorful, vulgar descriptions’, Penguinz0 is also considered as one of the “Funniest YouTube Commentators”. Alongside fellow YouTubers Kaya, Huggbees and Zealot, he also runs “The Official Podcast”.
He has tried his luck as an actor and voice-over artist too, and in May 2014 he voiced-over as ‘American Cultured Tourist’ and ‘American Slob’ in the popular simulation video game “Tropico 5”, while between 2016 and 2017 he gave his voice to Dag Key in the TV animated series “FTL Kestrel Adventures”. In April 2019, Penguinz0 released his debut single, entitled “2019 Guy“.
He is also active on the popular video game streaming platform Twitch, on which his official account – @moistcr1tikal – currently gathers well over 450,000 followers. He has accounts on Twitter and Instagram too
