The Ascension To Stardom
Sky Williams used video games as a way to escape from harsh reality and sadness. He became so engrossed in the game after starting to play ‘Super Smash Brothers,’ that he began competing in it. He began attending gaming contests every weekend in order to achieve his goal of being the best performer.
He continued to play computer games, eventually becoming a well-known ‘League of Legends’ player, but his first taste of stardom came as a comedian. He grew so proficient at improvisational humor throughout his school years that he competed in a school talent contest and received a trophy for presenting unique jokes.
He worked as a waitress at Applebee’s for six years, where he discovered the Flappers comedy competition by happenstance one day. He competed in the tournament and finished fourth out of 400 contestants in the final.
He eventually started uploading films to his YouTube account, but it was a video he posted on Reddit raving against fellow League of Legends players that went popular first. Within two months, the video had moved to the top of Reddit’s website, making him an internet sensation.
Sky Williams’ Unique Qualities
When Sky Williams was in sixth grade, he got depressed about some aspects of his life. He recognized he was gay about this time, and knowing how his parents’ culture was against it, he was afraid to even tell his family. His personality began to shift, and his peers began to tease him.
As a result of his declining status, his friends began to abandon him, exacerbating his sadness. However, as he sought sanctuary in his gaming group, he discovered that his peers were unconcerned about whether he was a loser or a gay person, and instead shared his enthusiasm for the game.
He began to connect with his gamer pals by attempting to make them laugh because he was lonely at home and at school. He was inspired by standup comedy on Comedy Central and decided to pursue a career as a comedian. He’d often tell random jokes to see what made people laugh, then write it down and try it out on a new audience.
He went straight to his mother after winning a talent show at school to tell her that he wants to be a comedian. However, he did not receive the support he had hoped for from his family, and after a tense meeting with his stepfather, he ended up moving out to live on his own.
He subsequently proved his point by becoming a successful comic and gamer.
