Early life and education
In Honolulu, Hawaii, on June 28, 1989, Mark Edward Fischbach was born. While stationed in South Korea, his father Cliffton, a German-American military commander, met his Korean mother Sunok Frank. The 2022 film Markiplier from North Korea explores Fischbach’s maternal familial tree.
Fischbach’s parents separated when he was a small child, and the family later relocated to Cincinnati, Ohio. Fischbach attended the University of Cincinnati and enrolled in the biomedical engineering program after graduating from Milford High School in 2007. In 2008, he lost his father. In the sixth grade, Fischbach befriended Wade Barnes, and in his freshman year, he shared a room with Bob Muyskens. Both would go on to become his lifelong friends and colleagues.
Fischbach experienced a number of problems in 2012, including a breakup, job loss, moving into an apartment after his mother ejected him from her home, an emergency appendectomy, and financial difficulties. He “decided that he wanted to do something else” after being admitted to the hospital due to an adrenal tumor.
On March 6, 2012, Fischbach set up his first YouTube channel. At first, he wanted to post comedy sketches and action films. As he would be playing all the characters in the sketches, he gave the channel the moniker “Markiplier,” a combination of the words Mark and multiplier. Later, Fischbach referred to it as a “really dumb name”. Fischbach, on the other hand, had a lifelong passion for video games and started to make gaming movies as the craze took off. Amnesia: The Dark Descent (2010) was the subject of his debut series, which helped the channel gain over 94,000 subscribers in just one year.
Fischbach relocated to Los Angeles at the beginning of 2014 in order to be nearer to potential business prospects. He published his debut Let’s Play of Five Nights at Freddy’s (2014) on August 13. The survival horror game, which had only been released five days earlier, and its several sequels became extremely popular as YouTubers like Fischbach created videos showcasing their “animated and over-the-top” emotions. Viewers were entertained by his hilariously exaggerated emotions as well as by his difficulties in understanding the game’s plot and completing the game’s hardest setting. The Five Nights at Freddy’s (FNaF) series was later the subject of Let’s Plays by Fischbach, which have since become some of his most popular and often-seen videos.
On March 23, 2015, he had emergency surgery and posted a video from his hospital bed which received over 5 million views. Fortunately, the surgery was a success and Mark returned to vlogging afterwards
His channel had more than 35.5 million subscribers as of August 2023.
When it comes to lets plays of indie horror games, Fischbach is best known.
In addition to LixianTV, who serves as Fischbach’s editor, other YouTubers with whom he has worked on gaming and sketch comedy videos include Ethan Nestor, Jacksepticeye, LordMinion777, Muyskerm, PewDiePie, Matthias, Game Grumps, Cyndago, Yamimash, jacks films, CaptainSparklez, Egoraptor, and PewDiePie. Additionally, he has worked with well-known people like Jimmy Kimmel and Jack Black.
Fischbach says that he is “not religious” and does not attend church
By 2023, Markiplier is expected to have earned a net worth of about $40 Million.
