Early Life and Gaming Beginnings
Sky didn’t know a lot about his father, as his parents divorced when he was only three years old. This led to him moving in with his mother who later remarried, but he was never closen to his stepfather as they di ‘ot get along well. He grew up with two older siblings, and at a young age, discovered video games as a means for him to escape his reality and depression.
One of the first games he really started playing a lot was “Super Smash Bros”. The video game is published by Nintendo, and features characters from various popular franchises. Instead of the traditional fighting game, the goal of players is to be able to knock their opponents out of the ring. Some of the characters who have been featured in these games include those from “Super Mario”, “The Legend of Zelda”, “Star Fox”, “Kirby”, and “Donkey Kong”. He even played the video game competitively during his youth.
Comedy and YouTube
While at school, Williams discovered the potential for a career in comedy, as he was good in school when it came to improvised humor. He won a talent show thanks to his original jokes, so after completing his education, he began working at Applebees as a server. He then entered a Flappers comedy competition, and reached fourth place among 400 competitors. Wanting to find a platform to help spread his comedy and build his brand, he took it upon himself to create a channel on YouTube.
YouTube is a video sharing website based in California and is owned by Google, having bought the service for $1.65 billion. It allows users to upload their own content for others to view. Viewers then have the option of subscribing to other users, or to interact on the video’s page through comments, rating, shares, reports and the like. Over the years, the website has become one of the largest sources of video-related media including documentaries, music videos, short films, video clips, and more. Content creators can earn advertising revenue through the Google AdSense program.
Transition to League of Legends

He intended the vlog to be a bit of his showcase on comedy while vlogging had also become very popular on the website. Eventually, he released a video ranting about players he encounters while playing “League of Legends”. The video went viral, and quickly reached the top of the game’s Reddit page. He became an internet sensation, and used this newfound fame to start creating content based on the game.

LoL is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) in which players take the role of an unseen summoner, who is controlling a champion with unique abilities. He or she then teams up with other summoner-controlled champions to face an enemy team, with the goal of destroying the other team’s base. The concept of the game was taken from the highly popular “Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne” mode called “Defense of the Ancients” (DotA). The game was release in 2009 and has since gained a huge amount of popularity, with over 100 million active players each month, plus spreading to other forms of media. It also has a widely popular competitive scene.
Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, not much is known in terms of Williams’ romantic relationships. He has been open about the fact that he is gay, and has attracted a lot of scrutiny for doing so, but his stance has also gained him a lot of support. In recent months, he’s been criticized for neglecting his fan base, and refusing to post any new content on YouTube without much of an explanation. Many of his followers believe that he has grown tired of YouTube, as with many other content creators who have since moved on.
Similar to numerous YouTube personalities, he is highly active online through an account on the social media website Twitter, which has over 480,000 followers. He uses the website to communicate with his followers, though he has had his share of controversy as evidenced from some of his tweets. He also uses the platform to share some of his thoughts and advocacies, as most of his posts are long form. He has not posted anything new to his YouTube account for six months, but previous videos have had him promising a return to creating content. Many fans have noted that he has been troubled and depressed in recent months, which has very probably contributed to his lack of motivation.
