Michael Reeves’ addition to the OfflineTV family has finally been announced after months of speculation, with the streamer group inducting the YouTuber on December 10.
OfflineTV, a group founded by former League of Legends pro William ‘scarra’ Li, hosts popular streamers Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys, Lily ‘LilyPichu’ Ki, Jeremy ‘Disguised Toast’ Wang, and Federico ‘FedMyster’ Gaytan.
Reeves’ journey to content creation came after he lost his well-paying job with the United States government as a Software Contractor. He’s always had a passion for coding and technology, and shares that in a lot of his videos.
“I was failing almost every single one of my classes and I realized that I would need to get a job afterwards because I need to feed myself and not die,” he said in the announcement video. “I paid less attention in school and focused 100% of my energy into learning how to code.
“Eventually I did get a job working as a Software Contractor for the government, and it was going really well, but somewhere along the way it all went wrong and now I make YouTube videos on the internet for kids.”
Scarra described Reeves as a “comedy-tech” YouTuber, presenting his amazing developer skills with a dry sense of humour and sarcastic remarks.
The streamer group became fans of Reeves, much like he became fans of OfflineTV, with the group collaborating with more content as time went on. “I thought his videos were really funny,” said Pokimane. “I have a special place in my heart for people who code because that was my favorite class at university.”

“I watched a couple of Michael Reeves videos and I thought that this guy is a complete f**king jacka** dude, like out of his mind,” said FedMyster, hesitating. “But I like that sh*t.”
