Information on the actor

George Virden Watsky was born on September 15th, 1986, in San Francisco, California. He is an American spoken-word poet, rapper, and YouTuber, known for his ability to rap extraordinarily fast. His talent for fast rapping started to receive acclaim after he was the Youth Speaks Grand Slam Poetry Champion. He is also known for his viral video "Pale kid raps fast" (now known as "Watsky raps fast"), in which he raps extremely fast. The video is currently unlisted. He has released several albums, including Watsky, All You Can Do, Cardboard Castles, x Infinity, and an upcoming fifth album, Complaint[1]. His website can be found here.

On May 6, 2020, Watsky beat the world record for the longest continuous freestyle rap, managing to achieve 33 hours, 33 minutes, and 19 seconds.[2] He held this record for 3 years until Japanese rapper PONEY surpassed him in April 2023.[3]

  • Watsky was animated in Shakespeare's clothing in his music video, "The Girl Next Door (To Everybody Else)".[4]
    • The video also featured animated portrayals of fellow ERB guest stars KassemG and Smosh.
  • He attended VidCon in 2012 with ERB to rap as Shakespeare in a live performance of Dr. Seuss vs Shakespeare.
  • In every battle he has made a rapping appearance in, his character's second verse has included a particularly fast rap. This is a trait taken from his own fast rapping style.
  • Alongside Zach Sherwin, Key & Peele, DeStorm Power, Rhett & Link, Timothy DeLaGhetto, Kimmy GatewoodDan Bull, and Wax he is one of the only guest stars to have a rapping role in more than one season.
    • He, Sherwin, Rhett and Link, and Power are the only ones to rap in more than two seasons.
  • His favorite characters to rap as are poets, as he is one himself.
  • All three of his characters started the battle.
    • In Doc Brown vs Doctor Who, the Tenth Doctor, who was portrayed by Nice Peter, started off the battle, but then Watsky portrayed the Doctor in his second verse as the Fourth Doctor, an alternate version of the same character.
  • Shakespeare is the only one of his characters who did not rap against a character portrayed by Zach Sherwin.
  • Both of the poets he has portrayed have rapped in a metrical foot (Shakespeare with iambic pentameter and Poe with trochaic octameter). They also both refer to this fact in their first verse.
  • He has collaborated with Wax on the songs "Kick Monday (In the Nutsack)"[5] and "Give a Hater a Hug".[6]
