Today, we're featuring Twitch streamer, KungfuPenguin (IRL: Joel) with a short interview on his streaming career and history with video games.
When did you start streaming and why?
February 2017. 4 years ago. I wanted a way to connect with friends and people all over. It's a fun creative outlet for me!
Where did your username come from?
When I was young, my older brother had a Penguin calendar. I always thought penguins were fun. When I got a little older, Xbox Live became a thing and I needed to create a Gamertag. Around 2002 or so, I thought what would be funny? Imagine a little penguin waddlin' up to you with a ninja headband, nunchucks, and derpy ferocity- Thus, KungFuPenguin was born.
What is your earliest memory of gaming? Do you remember the first game you played?
Playing Super Mario Bro/ Duck Hunt split. And Bubble Bobble! Maybe Ms. PacMan before that in the arcade?!
What is your favorite memory or achievement on Twitch so far?
My first 24-hour stream and hitting 1,000 Followers on stream. Everyone donated bits, it froze my stream! I felt so loved and supported.
What's your stream schedule look like?
I stream Monday - Wednesday - Friday @8pm EST with bonus streams on the weekends. That's my "Official Schedule" but most every night I stream though!
