Joseph Garrett (born: December 13, 1990 (1990-12-13) [age 28]), better known online as Stampylonghead, Stampylongnose, or just Stampy, is a popular British Minecraft YouTuber who primarily creates Minecraft Let's Play videos directed toward a younger audience. His original channel is stampylongnose, however, since 2012 he has been uploading content primarily to his current main channel, stampylonghead (Garrett still prefers to be called Stampy.)

His Stampylonghead channel was originally created on July 29, 2011, as a side-channel for his vlogs and console gameplay. Among the first videos he uploaded to this channel were Minecraft videos set in Stampy's Lovely World, the first world he ever created in Minecraft, and the world which has become home to his longest running and most consistently popular series. Stampy has since built hundreds of attractions in the world, such as Houses, Shops, Minigames, and Rides in 'Stampy's Funland.' Stampy has appeared in various Children's TV shows, such as Diddy TV and APPsolute genius, both from the British network CBBC. In addition, Stampy has appeared multiple times on news channels to discuss his life and career.

Stampy's Birth Date has been mentioned in his videos, in addition, fellow Youtuber and frequent collaborator iBallisticSquid has also mentioned that he was celebrating Stampy's birthday in one of his own Crazy Craft episodes. Stampy's birth date had been known previously due to a Q&A on ABC News, and another at Minecon in 2013.

Biography

Early Life

Joseph Garrett was born in Hampshire, England, on December 13, 1990. He was raised there with his two older sisters. As a child, he developed a passion for video games, and his favorite academic subject was science. Of his school experience, he said: "I was usually one of the quieter kids in lessons, but I still liked to joke around!" His hobbies were reading and practicing Magic, and he was also interested in Pokémon. When he was in high-school, he discovered his passion for making videos. His first videos mainly consisted of him and his friends filming each other performing silly stunts, but eventually, he began to independently create videos of short fictional stories. These videos were mostly created through claymation, and his channel name is a reference to a character who appeared in these shorts.

Adulthood

While at University, Stampy studied Video Production and received a degree in Film and Television Production. During this time, he also co-hosted a student radio show. He said of this experience, "I was pretty awful, but it helped my ability to speak unscripted." While at University, he also worked as a bartender in a Pub near his College. He partly credited this work with building his confidence, due to the job requirements of speaking to strangers, and dealing with stressful situations. At this time, he began playing Minecraft, and uploading Let's Play videos to Youtube. When his videos began to attract significant attention, he left his job to focus completely on his youtube career.

Personal Life

Joseph Garrett is currently engaged to Bethany Bates, also known as Sqaishey Quack. They live together with their Cat: Ori, Dog: Alyx, and their Bird.

Friends

iBallisticSquid

IBallisticSquid (commonly referred to as Squid) is one of Stampy's closest friends and frequently appears in videos with him. They have collaborated on many Minecraft projects, including their Quest, Crazy Craft, Pixelmon, and Race to the Moon series, in addition to many other Minecraft Adventure Maps and Challenges. Squid and stampy run a joint channel called MagicAnimalClub, where they have posted a series of podcasts, in addition to vlogs and BTS clips. Stampy has also created a joke channel called 'Let's Cress,' as a result of a Quest episode in which Stampy mistakenly said "Let's Cress" instead of "Let's Quest." This mistake led to the two joking about how to Let's cress sounded like the name of a cooking channel. At the end of the video, Stampy proposed a new channel as a result of the joke. On this channel, he has since uploaded a series of humorously deadpan videos about Watercress. Stampy has worked with Squid more than any other collaborator and considers him to be the Youtuber with the closest sense of humor to his own.

In real life, She has appeared with Stampy on many videos, including their Den series (Sky Den, Cave Den, and Ocean Den), Super Happy Fun Time, Super Mario Maker, and Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles.
