Internet celebrity Dough Walker became famous on YouTube in 2007. Around that time he introduced a number series and characters, in which he starred.
- Ask That Guy with the Glasses(A comedic Q&A show.)
- Bum Reviews
(Reviews of recently released films… as a bum!)
- 5 Second Movies(One of his most popular creations.A quick edit of movies (usually between 3 and 10 seconds) summarizing the movie in a comedic way.)
- The Nostalgia Critic
(This features scene-by-scene reviews of films. The series later features more recent works as well.)
Around the late 2007 Walker had his videos removed from YouTube over copyright complaints from studios like 20th Century Fox and Lionsgate. After a few attempts to get them back online, in 2008 he (together with Mike Michaud) created the website ThatGuyWithTheGlasses. It includes not only Dough’s personal work, but the reviews and commentaries of a number of people.
At the moment Walker is going strong, with his work getting an average from 100,000 to 300,000 viewers per week. ( And this is just the Nostalgia Critic Show )
Despite sometimes having a bit of childish humor, (this is just a personal note) his shows have been very entertaining for me and I will continue watching them with pleasure.
He is by far my favorite online critic.
