Who is Stamper?
Will Stamper is an American multitalented artist known primarily for his animations and voice acting work for several entertainment studios and resource sharing platforms including Newgrounds, The Behemoth and SleepyCabin. As an animator, he has created numerous fan-favorite cartoons including 'Fairy Wish Prince', 'African Dudes' and 'Starscream & Megatron'. He served as the narrator for the video game 'BattleBlock Theater'. Moreover, he lent his voice to another video game, 'Castle Crashers'; the animated short, 'Rebecca'; the TV series short 'Hellbenders'; and is part of the voice actor cast in the upcoming video game 'Pit People', in which he voices the main antagonist, a giant space bear. He has been credited as a writer for 'BattleBlock Theater' and 'Rebecca', and has received special thanks for his contributions to 'Alien Hominid' and 'Hellbenders'. He has been featured on the TV series 'Smart Guys' and made guest appearances on the Game Grumps channel on the series 'Table Flip'. He also helped his Newgrounds colleague Mike, the creator of the flash-to-video converter Swivel, by developing the logo and visual end of the software.
The Meteoric Rise to Stardom
Leaving high school early, Will Stamper taught himself graphics and web design through trial and error. He has been a popular Flash animator since 2000, and joined the Newgrounds team professionally around 2003. He worked on a number of collaboration projects at Newgrounds, and one of his most popular works, 'African Dudes', was created during this time. For almost 10 years, he was the lead web and graphics designer there, and his final website design is still in use. Along with a few of his animator friends from Newgrounds, he founded the website SleepyCabin and was part of the 'SleepyCast' till he left the group in early 2015 to pursue personal projects.
He has worked on a number of games by The Behemoth, starting with 'Castle Crashers' in 2008, for which he had sent a music track before its release and was given credit subsequently. His best known project for the game company is 'BattleBlock Theater', which released in April 2013. He narrated the story with odd humor, as well as voiced most of the tutorials for the game on their website.
He had created his YouTube account 'StamperTV' back in November 2008, even though he started posting videos regularly in the early 2012. He initially uploaded some of his earlier works, occasionally posting new videos later, one of which, 'Fat Refund', became very popular with his fans. He also has an official website by the same name which serves as an archive for various different types of content that he would not be able to put on elsewhere either for explicit content or for profanity.

What Makes Stamper Special

Controversies & Scandals
After Will Stamper left SleepyCabin, it created an online sensation among his fans, with various conspiracy theories being spread, reportedly within 15 minutes after he made the announcement. However, he had specifically mentioned that he left the group on good terms and is cordial with the rest of the members. In spite of that, Niall from SleepyCabin had to make an official statement a few months later, requesting the fans not to spread rumors and to support Stamper on his new venture. Prior to his departure, the 'SleepyCast' episodes built up the death of a cast member, which Stamper later revealed, was none other than him.
William Andrew Stamper was born on March 8, 1983, in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. His father is of German descent, while his mother has Polynesian ancestry. Being born into a navy family, he has spent much of his childhood moving from one place to another. Following his parents, he initially wanted to pursue a career in law enforcement, and had even considered becoming a priest. He dropped out of secondary school before completing his graduation and never attended a college. Despite his devil-may-care online persona, he was very sensitive as a kid, and once rushed an injured seagull to a veterinarian after he shot it with an air pistol. He also participated in street races in his youth, but eventually stopped following a near-death experience after driving his car off an overpass.
