Scottish comedian Brian ‘Limmy’ Limond is a Twitch regular, although he might need to start looking to take some time off the platform after his son roasted him for streaming all day long.

Comedy sensation Limmy has gone from sketch shows on television to an more intimate experience on Twitch. He’s found a home on the streaming platform with thousands of adoring fans tuning in for his Scottish quips and dry sense of humor.

However, while the streamer might enjoy his time on the platform, his family isn’t as enthusiastic at times. 

Twitch: LimmyProfessional gamer by day, comedian by night, Limmy has found himself a home on Twitch.

During a January 2 broadcast, his nine-year-old son, Daniel, was fed up. After seeing his dad behind the screen for over five hours, he told him to get up, “get some fresh air,” and stop streaming.

“You need to stop streaming you’ve been on for almost half a day,” he yells out. However, Limmy questions his son, parroting back his advice. “I need stop streaming, I’ve been on this for half a day?”

Daniel slowly gets more annoyed that his dad isn’t taking a break, even asking him to “get some fresh air,” before calling him “lazy.”

“You’re lazy — playing games all day,” he yelled. Limmy responded with the fact “playing games is my job now, and I’m doing it right now!”

After having all of his questions deflected, Daniel stormed into his dad’s room telling him to shut off the stream and “spend time with me.” But, once again, Limmy had something to say to that.

“You don’t wanna spend time with me! You saying you wanna spend time with me but you don’t wanna spend time with me,” the comedian retorted.

Twitter: LimmyLimmy’s son Daniel is a bit of a gamer himself as well.

Limmy did eventually end up fulfilling his son’s request, turning off his five-and-a-half hour stream just five minutes later — although he did promise viewers he would try and fit in a cheeky stream later that night.

The Scottish entertainer doesn’t rely solely on Twitch for work. He is a comedian, after all, with his series ‘Limmy’s Show’ available on Netflix, and he also does stand-up around Scotland and the rest of the UK.

It’s unlikely the streamer will end up altering his schedule to his son’s wishes, but he might take him up on the request to spend more time with him, if he obliges.

Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
