2016 (Kids W/ Problems) (Supermega)

Supermega (stylized as SuperMega) is a variety YouTube channel created by Ryan Magee and Matt Watson in 2016 as the sister channel to their sketch comedy channel Kids W/ Problems. The duo are notable as editors and guests for other YouTubers such as Markiplier, Game Grumps, and Suzy Berhow. The group has also performed live shows and tours, and host a weekly podcast.

History[edit]

2012-2016: Early career[edit]

Ryan Magee founded comedy YouTube channel, Cyndago, on December 17, 2012, with friend, Daniel Kyre.[1] Matt Watson founded comedy channel, Kids W/ Problems in 2014 with friend, William Jose. Ryan and Matt met in 2015 through YouTube, and made several collaborations between their two channels. After Watson moved to Los Angeles, California as the editor of Markiplier, he was announced as the 3rd member of Cyndago on August 10, 2015.[2] After Cyndago co-founder, Daniel Kyre, died on September 18, 2015, Cyndago disbanded and the duo returned to Watson's channel, Kids W/ Problems, while Magee also became editor to Markiplier. In February 2015, They announced via Twitter they would be forming a sister channel that would act as a gaming channel. The name was confirmed as SuperMega weeks later.

2016-Present: Career as SuperMega, and working for Game Grumps[edit]

SuperMega officially began on April 12, 2016, as a sole gaming channel with a weekly podcast section titled "SuperMegaCast", which has featured several guests. Namely, Dan Avidan, Arin Hanson, Ross O'Donovan, Jacksepticeye, and Ian Hecox.[3] Over the years, however, the channel has expanded to other genres such as a drunk drawing series, movie reviews, and cooking segments, one of which features Finn Wolfhard.[4]

In summer of 2016, it was announced by Markiplier that the duo had stopped editing for him after they had a falling out, and from now on, they would be working as editors of Game Grumps with Barry Kramer.[5][6] They also began editing for Suzy Berhow's channel, KittyKatGaming, up until she stopped uploading content to YouTube on January 17th, 2019.

On September 18th, 2019, former Kids W/ Problems member, Jackson Tucker, and his brother, Harrison Tucker join the duo as reoccurring guests.[7]

On May 8, 2019, SuperMega announced they would be leaving Game Grumps in order to put their full attention on the channel and find their own office.[8]
