Marko (Born: November 12, 1992), better known online as KingsOfFailsShow or Marko KOFS, is a Croatian gaming YouTuber and aspiring voice actor.
Marko's main channel ￼￼KingsOfFailsShow was started in November 2013 by him and his friend Tomislav. The very first video on the channel was filmed by Marko and it's called Assasin Creed Black Flag. At the time the channel consisted mostly of RPG and FPS video games, and it was almost all of the time one game in a gameplay made by exclusively by one of them. They did play some mini video games together such as Millionaire and Pokémon Fire Red.
After a year on the channel, Tomislav left for undisclosed reasons and Marko took over. When Tomislav left there was a noticeable change in the channel. There were more video games Marko took interest in, it mainly being Minecraft and Minecraft minigames, and he started to collab with other YouTubers like BloodMaster because Marko was fascinated how BloodMaster reached 1k subs. Later on, the two became best friends. One more noticeable thing is that videos became more cheerful, filled with humor and Marko stopped using foul language.
Shortly after his channel began to gain momentum and he went from 32 subs from December 2013 to 6000 subs in December 2014 to 100,000 in August 2015. As of April 2017, his channel counts over 450,000 subscribers and as of November 2018, it counts '780,000' subscribers.
- In 2015 Marko made a side channel that was intended for his English gameplay videos, but he only publicly announced it in January 2017 as channel Marki, and all previous videos on that channel have been private.
One of his main marks in filming is the use of his outro PAA PAAAAA! as well the use of titles that contain a quote from the video, use of bad jokes, constant laughing, nervous talk while playing horror video games, changes in pitch of the voice, now green background (used to be a blue background) and until recently black-red headphones.
Marko opened up his twitch channel around March 2015 and he still occasionally streams just doesn't archive them.

In 2015 Marko began filming Minecraft Preživljavanje - Osveta (Minecraft Survival-Revenge),a Minecraft series that was intended to be a regular Minecraft survival but turned into a directed series as he kept giving voices to characters like Darude aka Veliki čarobnjak Fenix (Or Great wizard Phoenix, named after a song Darude by Sandstorm as a joke), Kloki ( a Minecraft chicken with attitude), Princ Tame (Dark Prince) evil being in a form of a dragon, later in a form of a Minecraft zombie with an alias Mata (rearranged spells out Tama).

Marko used to own a dog named Ben but unfortunately, in early 2016 his dog passed away because someone poisoned him. This combined with other private unfortunate events made Marko stay off YouTube and according to him in that time period he thought the channel would fall apart. Marko currently takes care of a puppy named Nola, which is his mother's dog.
Marko is very private about his relationship life but he did share with his viewers that he was in a 3-year-old relationship with a girl named Maja until the beginning of 2016, and then he announced at the beginning of January 2017 that he is in a relationship with a girl names Ivana who studies abroad in Finland.
