Tune in to see daddy and co-casters from across the KQB community hype up gameplay and drop tricks along the way.

We wanted to know more, here’s what Community Caster, daddy, had to say:
KQB: What games do you cast?
Daddy: Pretty much exclusively KQB now!
KQB: What inspired you to get into casting?
Daddy: I never really played video games seriously, and definitely not in a competitive sphere, prior to getting into Killer Queen (arcade). My first tournament experience was at a pretty big KQ tourney, Red Bull Hive Hustle in LA in 2018. The person who cast our only game on the national broadcast said some….not nice things about my team, haha but we ended up winning the set. I remember feeling like my first ever tournament experience was kind of tainted by that caster’s negativity. I take that memory and channel it now into making everyone’s vod review experiences silly and fun and something they’re excited to watch back even if the game didn’t necessarily go their way, but especially exciting if it did.
KQB: What games do you play?
Daddy: I’m basic af, to be honest. I play KQ/KQB competitively now and the pandemic has given me a love for all these fun team games like Among Us or Fall Guys. I literally bought a switch just to play KQB. Before covid I really only ever had fun in an arcade – I love old school games like Rampart, Frogger, Mrs. Pac-Man. I’m a HUGE Donkey Kong 3 fan! I’ve fallen in love with newer indie arcade games too like Foiled!, Kung Fu Football, Particle Mace, and Death
KQB: What’s something about your casting style that makes your streams unique?
Daddy: I don’t find anything unique, per se, but I think when you’re casting with your friends and you’re able to bounce off each other well and balance game strat with like super hype excitement/exclamations, it makes things really enjoyable and I’d say that’s what I’m best at a little more than anything else.
KQB: What’s a favorite casting memory of yours?
Daddy: Wow do I have to pick one? I can’t so I won’t, haha. A few months ago lightsabermetrics and I casted the first-ever Puppy Bowl for all the kiddo’s of KQB and it was just so so so much fun! I did a cast once with littlepenguindude where we were screaming so loud that my mic wasn’t picking up all my comms, we were just laughing and screaming for like 30 minutes straight. And most any cast with Chungus and the Big Show has always been an enjoyable and exciting experience!
KQB: When you aren’t gaming or casting you’re?
Daddy: Reading, I have done my best to read one book a week since covid started. I’ve also taken up plants, we’ll see how long they live.
KQB: What animal is your kindred spirit?
Daddy: The love child of Tina Belcher and Bart Simpson. Or a hedgehog. Also possibly Arya Stark after she’s been stabbed in the stomach. One of those.
KQB: Is there anything else we should know?
Daddy: More people should get involved with casts! It’s not about knowing everything about the game or being an expert at plays. It’s about having fun, cheering people on, and being excited about a game you love! Representation is also really important, and I would love to see more minorities, femmes and NBs get involved in the casting game. Hit me up!
Thank you, daddy for all you do! Make sure to catch a cast and if you’re thinking about casting KQB, why not start with a daddy co-cast?
