Karl Jacobs is an American streamer and YouTuber. He is famous for Minecraft-related content and frequently appears in MrBeast’s videos. He can be called the jack of all trades when it comes to streaming, as rarely any other YouTuber has worked on such a variety of projects.

Streaming Career 

Karl Jacobs started his career in 2017 under the alias of GamerBoyKarl and streamed Roblox content through Game Patrol. In 2019, he was scouted by YouTuber CjThesedays (formerly MrBro) to work as a video editor, which kickstarted his career as a YouTuber.

Furthermore, he joined MrBeast as a cameraman and then naturally shifted to an on-screen member. He met Dream (A Minecraft Youtuber) here during one of the shoots and joined him on his Minecraft server.

In September 2021, Karl launched a podcast called Banter as co-host with Sapnap and GeorgeNotFound. It briefly overtook the top spot on Spotify with Episode 01 featuring MrBeast. Since then, Karl has collaborated with many streamers on YouTube and Twitch.

Recently, he released his first animated short ‘Beside Myself’ on YouTube, featuring Elenor Kopka as an animator and Richi Woods as a music composer.

Tales from the SMP 

Karl Jacobs created an anthology series titled ‘Tales from the SMP‘ about the experiences of a time traveler. The series is set in the Dream SMP server of Minecraft and has featured well-known personalities Lil Nas X, Dream, and Corpse Husband. This project is set to be adapted into a comic series written by Dave Scheidt and illustrated by Kelly and Nichole Matthews under Dark Horse Comic‘s production.

Personal information 

Karl Jacobs was born on July 19, 1998. He obtained his high school graduation from Fort Dorchester High School in 2016 and joined Portland Community College to study Multimedia but dropped out a few weeks before the finals to join MrBro’s crew. He has also worked as a salesman for Starlite Gaming and a reviewer for GameTZ.

Personality-wise, Karl is an average boy next door. However, he can get competitive during games and throw a fit when losing. His fans enjoy this side of him whenever he participates in various challenges, and there is a handful of them for you to check out.
