Corpse Husband (born: August 8, 1997YouTuber, gamer, and musician from San Diego, California. He is well known for his deep, distinguishable voice, and playing Among Us with other YouTubers and Twitch streamers.), or simply Corpse, is an American
Corpse is part of a community of YouTubers known as Horror Narration Channels. Unlike other horror narrators, he prefers to read true horror stories, whether they are sent in from his subscribers, or from subreddits such as r/LetsNotMeet and r/NoSleep.
Before his channel, Corpse Husband had been told on numerous occasions that he had the voice to do narration; more specifically, horror narration on YouTube. When he was growing up he used to listen to Creepypasta narration channels such as MrCreepyPasta, Chilling Tales for Dark Nights, and Cryaotic. He was intrigued, but what really motivated him was stumbling across channels like Mr. Nightmare, Be. Busta, and Lazy Masquerade who typically narrated true horror stories. He then got to work on his own channel, which would later become one of the most popular horror narration channels on YouTube.
The name Corpse Husband was created whilst he sat down for 20 minutes, trying to think of a name for his channel. He wrote down a few names, and eventually, he came up with the name Corpse Husband. His girlfriend at the time said it sounded cool, but Corpse wasn't entirely sure and stated he would change it. As of now, he hasn't changed it, and most likely will not.
When Corpse Husband first started recording videos, he had a microphone zip-tied with rubber-bands on a pop-filter which is why he sounded "so weird". A few people enjoyed his content, so he decided to continue narrating. Mr. Nightmare was one of the first big channels to comment on his videos, which probably contributed to his desire to continue narrating.
Corpse Husband has stated that he "basically dropped out of school in 8th grade because of personal issues" but returned to schooling soon after, before dropping out once again. Corpse Husband was, "a very rebellious student", according to himself, and "only did good in Computers and English".
He used to play soccer, and he managed to get in his town's newspaper doing so. Afterward, he played baseball and made the front page of his school's sports website. He did not enjoy traditional sports.
He lives in an apartment which he first got with his then-girlfriend until they broke up resulting in him now living alone. He mainly records stories at night, when it is quiet.
Only his closest friends know how he looks like as he has not done a face reveal. However, he claims that his YouTube profile picture looks a lot like him, besides the half mask.
He is about 5'10" (178 centimeters) tall. He was formerly a vegan.
One day, somebody knocked at the door of Corpse Husband's house. His mother opened the door where she met a stranger who claimed that he was affiliated with a gas company and needed to get inside. His mother let him inside and he left shortly after. When Corpse Husband came home, his mother told him what had happened. He than called the gas company, who stated they weren't aware of the situation.
The next day, Corpse Husband and his family were out. When they returned home, they noticed somebody by a car parked in their driveway. The man acted like he was checking out their car then left shortly after. The next day, when Corpse Husband was in his room, he heard loud talking outside his house. He and his family brushed it off when suddenly they heard a crash. They went to the backyard and saw a tattered up couch. His family started freaking out when somebody started kicking the front door. At the same time, cars were driving away and people were screaming outside of his house. When he and his family opened the door to confront whoever was doing this, they were gone. Since then, there have been multiple other occasions in which people have stalked his house, and every time one of his family members come out of their house, they speed off. Since June 2016, Corpse Husband hasn't mentioned more incidents like this.
In October 2020, Corpse Husband got wrapped up in a controversy on Twitter when an older video of him saying the lesbian slur "dyke" in a horror story reenactment video resurfaced. He explained himself in a video and the drama simmered down. Since then, the video about the horror story has been taken off YouTube.
