Brian is a renowned YouTuber who has figured out that his career lies in his great sense of comic timing and his perfect impersonations of villains from Marvel and DC Comics. He owns a gaming channel on YouTube with over 1.8 million subscribers, and was ranked as the 9th most subscribed channel in Ireland in 2015. His gaming commentary has made him an integral part of the crew ‘Vanoss’, who together have a blast at gaming conventions. The most recent one attended by Brian, better known as the Terroriser, was the Insomnia 57 in 2016. He has a spectacular fan following on other sites too. On Instagram, he has 684K followers. Brian also loves ‘tweeting’ and keeping his fans informed about his latest developments on Twitter, where he has 670K supporters. The Terroriser got himself into a little trouble once, when he stated that he stole internet from a nearby McDonald’s branch.
The Meteoric Rise to Stardom
All through schooling Brian didn’t fare too well. His parents were strict about his education, hence he scraped through to the next grade, but he wanted to take up a unique career rather than live a mundane life. He began watching YouTube videos during high school. But it was not until May 2011 that he joined YouTube. His first video was titled ‘Crazy Black Man.’Initially he didn’t get many subscribers, but as he continued to pay attention and improve his content, he started gaining fans overnight. While he was in college, his account suddenly began receiving large subscriptions, first in hundreds and then in thousands per day. With his gaining popularity, his family began to support him too and he gave up his day job at ‘Subway’ and at the supermarket ‘Super Value’ to focus on his YouTube career. It was astonishing for him to get such great feedback by doing what he loved most, i.e. gaming. He left college in his third year, since his new job demanded more attention. However, he doesn’t recommend dropping out of college unless one has a purpose, as making that decision for himself was tough. Fortunately, because of his success, he doesn’t regret the decision he took. He also joined the Vanoss’ crew and collaborates with MiniLad in many videos.
