A film critic, comedian, actor, and YouTuber, Douglas Darien Walker was born on November 17, 1981, in New York City. His most famous role as the obnoxious Nostalgia Critic—a vulgar and childish media critic—reviews content that is either considered nostalgic or otherwise relevant to western pop culture. Walker is a Chicago-based actor.
Initially, he published media reviews on his own with help from his brother Robert “Rob” Walker (who often appears in Nostalgia Critic skits as the fictional characters “Chart Guy,” an oblivious but well-intentioned corporate analyst in a power suit, and “Santa Christ,” whose sarcastic and sarcastic but sincere character is played by Malcolm Ray) (an amalgamation of Santa Claus and Jesus Christ).
To avoid accusations of copyright infringement, the Walker Brothers merged their Nostalgia Critic skits with those of content creation company Channel Awesome. This resulted in the removal of longer media clips in favor of cutaway gags and skits that were acted out. He still attends conventions and community events to meet fans, but since the COVID-19 pandemic, he has significantly decreased his physical presence in public.
