Mark Edward Fischbach (/ˈfɪʃˌbɑːk/ FISH-bahk; born June 28, 1989), known online as Markiplier, is an American YouTuber, actor and filmmaker.[2] He mainly uploads Let's Plays and is known for his videos of indie horror games.[3] After joining YouTube in 2012, Fischbach became popular on the platform with Let's Plays of Amnesia: The Dark Descent (2010) and the Five Nights at Freddy's series. As of March 2024, his channel has over 36 million subscribers.[4]

Fischbach is one of the most popular gaming YouTubers on the platform. He was listed by Forbes as the third highest-paid content creator on the platform in 2022,[5] and has won four Streamy Awards and a Golden Joystick Award for "Best Streamer/Broadcaster".

After expressing an interest in more traditional entertainment, Fischbach signed with talent agency William Morris Endeavor in 2016. In the following years, he went on a live tour, started a clothing line named Cloak, wrote and directed the YouTube Original series A Heist with Markiplier (2019) and In Space with Markiplier (2022), and hosted or co-hosted several podcasts—two of which reached No. 1 on Spotify. In 2023, Fischbach moved to United Talent Agency. In April 2023, Fischbach announced he was leading production of the horror film Iron Lung, which will be his theatrical film debut.[6][permanent dead link]

Early life and education

Mark Edward Fischbach was born on June 28, 1989, in Honolulu, Hawaii.[‡ 8]: 0:15[7] His father Cliffton was a German American military officer who met his Korean mother Sunok Frank while stationed in South Korea.[7] Fischbach's maternal family history is explored in the 2022 documentary Markiplier from North Korea.[8]

After Fischbach was born, the family moved to Cincinnati, Ohio,[9] but his parents divorced when he was young.[‡ 9]: 3:14 Fischbach graduated from Milford High School in 2007 and enrolled at the University of Cincinnati, where he took a biomedical engineering program.[9][10] His father died in 2008.[11] Fischbach met Wade Barnes in sixth grade and roomed with Bob Muyskens in his freshman year—they would both become his long-term friends and collaborators.[12]

In 2012, Fischbach was beset by many different issues: he went through a breakup, was laid off of his job, moved to an apartment after his mother kicked him out of her house, had an emergency appendectomy and went into debt. After being hospitalized because of an adrenal tumor, he "decided that he wanted to do something else."[13][14]

YouTube career


Early years and growth (2012–2014)

Fischbach in 2014

Fischbach registered his first YouTube channel on March 6, 2012.[‡ 10] He originally intended to upload comedy sketches and action videos. He named the channel "Markiplier", a portmanteau of Mark and multiplier, as he would be portraying all the characters in the sketches. Fischbach later said it was a "really dumb name".[‡ 11][13] However, Fischbach also had a lifelong interest in video games and decided to do gaming videos while the trend was growing.[13] His first series was a Let's Play of Amnesia: The Dark Descent (2010), and the channel reached over 94,000 subscribers within the year.[7][15]

YouTubers with over one thousand subscribers were then eligible to earn money under YouTube's AdSense program.[9] However, Fischbach had problems with his AdSense account which prevented him from monetizing his videos, and he was forced to move to his current channel in April, originally named "markiplierGAME".[7] He dropped out of university the same year to support his growing online career, only two semesters away from graduating.[9][10] In early 2014, Fischbach moved to Los Angeles to be closer to potential business opportunities.[13]

Hiatus and breaking 10 million subscribers (2015)

Fischbach in 2015

Fischbach and Janet Varney co-hosted the 2015 South by Southwest Gaming Awards,[16] and he was featured in YouTube Rewind.[17] He was ranked sixth in a list of the twenty most influential celebrities among teenagers in the United States.[18] Fischbach and fellow YouTuber Jenna Mae appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in September 2015 following backlash Kimmel received regarding jokes he made about YouTube and Let's Play videos.[19]

Fischbach began living with fellow YouTubers Daniel Kyre and Ryan Magee, who ran the YouTube channel Cyndago.[20] In September 2015, Kyre was found in critical condition after attempting suicide in his room. He was hospitalized, but was taken off life support two days later. Cyndago was disbanded and Fischbach went on hiatus from YouTube for a month before returning on October 5.[20] He reached 10 million subscribers on the 14th.[‡ 12]

Continued growth and larger projects (2016–2019)

Fischbach in 2017

In November 2016, Fischbach signed with talent agency William Morris Endeavor (WME).[21] His first project with WME was his "You're Welcome Tour" in Spring 2017, in which Fischbach and four other YouTubers—Muyskens, Barnes, Tyler Schied, and Ethan Nestor—performed thirty-one shows across the United States and Europe.[14][22][23] Fischbach had said to Variety that he was interested in more traditional entertainment.[13] Taking five months to plan, he incorporated musical, comedy and improv elements and audience participation in the tour.[14]

Fischbach in 2018

In January 2018, Fischbach began producing exclusive content for Twitch as part of a deal with Disney Digital Network.[24] His YouTube channel reached 20 million subscribers in March,[‡ 13] before going on another hiatus in June to mourn his step-niece Miranda Cracraft, who had been killed in a car accident aged nineteen, raising over $79,000 for her funeral through GoFundMe.[13][25]

In October 2019, interactive special A Heist with Markiplier was released as his first YouTube Original. Produced by Fischbach and Rooster Teeth, the special follows two burglars—the viewer and Fischbach—and contains 31 possible endings.[26] Fischbach had released a similar project titled A Date with Markiplier in 2017.[27]

On November 15, 2019, Fischbach launched a new channel with fellow YouTuber Ethan Nestor (formerly known online as CrankGameplays) called Unus Annus (Latin for “one year”), a channel which planned to upload a video every day for one year, after which the channel would be deleted along with its videos.[28][29] The channel rose to early success, gaining 1 million subscribers in its first 5 days and 4.56 million in its last few minutes, and over 11.5 million video views in its first week.[30][31] Following a final 12-hour live stream that peaked at over 1.5 million concurrent viewers, the channel was deleted by Fischbach and Nestor on November 14, 2020, at 12:00 a.m. PST.[citation needed]

Podcasts and new projects (2019–2023)

Fischbach starred and co-produced a podcast drama called The Edge of Sleep, which follows a night watchman who discovers that everyone who fell asleep the previous night died and must try to stay awake. The first project from QCode's Wood Elf label,[a] The Edge of Sleep debuted September 2019,[33] and was renewed for a second season set for 2023.[34] Fischbach will reprise his role in a television remake produced by New Regency, which as of 2023 has been fully shot and is being taken out to buyers. Lio Tipton and Eve Harlow will also star.[35][36]

Fischbach, alongside Barnes and Muyskens, host the podcast Distractible. Also produced by Wood Elf, it rose to No. 1 on Spotify and Apple Podcasts' charts when it was launched in May 2021.[12] Fischbach and Scheid also launched Go! My Favorite Sports Team in February 2022, a comedy podcast where the enthusiast Scheid and the unknowledgeable Fischbach discuss sports.[37]

The two-part In Space with Markiplier (2022) was again produced by Fischbach and Rooster Teeth as his second interactive YouTube Original. The viewer takes on the role of the captain of a collapsing spaceship with Fischbach playing its head engineer. In Space was nominated for Outstanding Interactive Media at the first Children's and Family Emmys Awards.[38][39]

Deadline announced at the start of March 2023 that Fischbach had signed with United Talent Agency (UTA).[36] A week later, it was announced at Spotify Stream On that Spotify would exclusively host new video episodes of Distractible and Go! My Favorite Sports Team. Fischbach also said he was working on an upcoming film.[37][40] On April 21, Deadline announced that Fischbach had begun production on a film adaptation of the 2022 indie horror game Iron Lung by David Szymanski. Fischbach is directing, producing, writing, and financing Iron Lung himself. The film stars him and Caroline Rose Kaplan.[41]


Fischbach is best known for his Let's Plays of indie horror games.[3] Fischbach has collaborated on sketch comedy and gaming videos with a number of fellow YouTubers, including Ethan Nestor, Jacksepticeye, LordMinion777, Muyskerm, PewDiePie, Matthias, Game Grumps, Cyndago, Yamimash, jacksfilms, CaptainSparklez, Egoraptor and LixianTV, the last of whom currently works as his editor.[42] He has also collaborated with celebrities such as Jack Black[43] and Jimmy Kimmel.[19]

Five Nights at Freddy's

Fischbach uploaded his first Let's Play of the survival horror game Five Nights at Freddy's (2014) on August 13, 2014. As of November 2023, the video has over 114 million views,[‡ 14] making it his most-viewed Let's Play.[44] Five Nights at Freddy's (FNaF) was an indie game that had been released only five days prior. However, it quickly saw viral success after YouTubers such as Fischbach made videos playing it, with viewers being drawn by the hilarity of their "over-the-top" reactions. Fischbach's videos included his struggles to beat the game's hardest mode and decipher the complicated hidden story the resulting franchise is now known for.[3][44]

For over a decade,[44] Fischbach has consistently made Let's Plays of every entry in the FNaF series. They are some of his most viewed and rewatched videos. He is highly engaged with the franchise's fandom, which has an overlap with his own.[3] He made a guest appearance in the launch trailer for Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery (2019).[45] Fans have dubbed him the "King of FNaF". In 2023, /Film's B. J. Colangelo wrote that Fischbach was the main contributor to FNaF's rise to popularity.[44] Fischbach confirmed he was asked to appear in the 2023 film adaptation of the video game, but was unable to due to scheduling conflicts with his Iron Lung adaptation.[46]: 6:33 In one of MatPat's Film Theory videos, it was confirmed that Fischbach was supposed to play the night security guard that was killed by the animatronics in the film's opening scene.[47]: 4:28

Other ventures

Fischbach joined the board of comic book publisher Red Giant Entertainment in November 2014.[48] In June of that year at the San Diego Comic-Con, he co-hosted a panel with figures from the company including CEO Benny R. Powell, and writers David Campiti, Mort Castle, David Lawrence, and Brian Augustyn.[49] In 2016, it was announced that he would appear in his own line of comics.[50]

Since 2017, he has voiced the character 5.0.5 in the Cartoon Network series Villainous.[51]


In October 2018, Fischbach and fellow YouTuber Seán McLoughlin launched the clothing line Cloak, aimed at the gaming community.[52] Streamer Imane Anys joined Cloak as a partner and creative director in 2020.[53]


Fischbach has participated in multiple charity live streams and fundraisers.[54] The majority of his fundraising has been for cancer charities in honor of his father, who died of lung cancer in 2008.[55] In 2017, Forbes reported that Fischbach and his fans raised around $3 million for charity through these events.[56] In March 2018, in celebration of reaching 20 million subscribers, Fischbach announced he would donate all proceeds from a 48-hour sale of his "Tasteful Nudes" Charity Calendar to the Cancer Research Institute; he raised over $490,000 for the charity and won the 2020 Oliver R. Grace Award.[57][58]


The success of the Tasteful Nudes Calendar inspired Fischbach to start an account on OnlyFans, whose proceeds will be split evenly between the Cincinnati Children's Hospital and the World Food Programme.[59][60] He announced a set of conditions that had to be met first before launching the page: The first condition was that his Distractible podcast had to become the most popular podcast on Apple Podcast and Spotify, and the second condition was that a sports podcast he created with a friend had to become the most popular sports podcast in the United States and the rest of the world. The third and final condition was that fans had to pay an admission of $12 for his documentary Markiplier From North Korea, a documentary based on his mother's life story about him getting back in touch with the rest of his family.[59]

The conditions were met faster than he was prepared for. On November 2, 2022, he announced in a YouTube video that he was going to create the page at the end of the month, after making an initial batch of "tasteful nudes" and obtaining the "Markiplier" handle from an impersonator.[‡ 15]

The page was launched on December 9, 2022, and the influx of traffic caused the site to crash.[59][60][59][60]

Personal life

Fischbach says that he is "not religious" and does not attend church.[‡ 8]: 1:15 Mark's older brother, Tom, is a comic artist who created the long running webcomic Twokinds.[61]
