Noah Antwiler is an Illinois (formerly Arizona) based actor, comedian, writer and host of his award winning VideoReviewShow, ''WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment''. Aside from ''The Spoony Experiment'', Antwiler also hosts ''WebVideo/CounterMonkey'', a series in which he recounts various stories from his TabletopGame days & offers various insights into the mindset of both the players & the [[GameMaster GMs]]; and has appeared in all the various anniversary specials of Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses before he left in Summer 2012.


----
!!Works featuring Noah Antwiler:
* ''WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment''
* ''Wrestle! Wrestle!''
* ''Deadliest Character''
* ''WebVideo/CounterMonkey''
* ''Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses[=.com=]'' Anniversary Specials
** ''WebVideo/TGWTGYearOneBrawl''
** ''WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}''
** ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights''
** ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee''
* ''[[PressStart Press Start 2 Continue]]''


!!Notable tropes invoked by Noah Antwiler:
* {{Archenemy}}: [[{{TNA}} Dixie Carter]]. And he's not an UnknownRival, either: she's [[PickOnSomeoneYourOwnSize shot back]] (for God knows what reason).
* BecomingTheMask: Some detractors claim he's become as angry and acerbic as TheSpoonyOne, particularly in how he treats his fans.
* CausticCritic
* CreatorBreakdown: Sadly, and repeatedly. He had undiagnosed Bipolar II for years. Everyone thought that he just had depression and was put on antidepressants.
* DoesNotLikeSpam: Raw Bell Peppers. During his [[http://spoonyexperiment.com/2009/01/25/hells-kitchen-the-game-the-review/ Hell's Kitchen:]] [[TheProblemWithLicensedGames The Game]] review, he took a bite into one, and the outtake after the credits show him trying to keep it down, even after he spit it out.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Numerous in-character examples, but many of the fans who talk about how sexy he is are men.
* FandomHeresy: He's a huge wrestling fan, and often comes across as a stereotypical {{Smark}}, but he has expressed opinions that fly in the face of the IWC on Wrestle! Wrestle!, e.g. enjoying Michael Cole's run as a heel commentator or considering JohnCena a competent performer who's capable of decent matches (just not with RandyOrton).
* HeroesLoveDogs: As seen in [[http://spoonyexperiment.com/2010/10/22/vlog-10-22-10-paranormal-activity-2/ this video]], he very much wants a dog (about 18 minutes in).
** As of [[http://spoonyexperiment.com/2011/10/03/i-have-a-new-friend/ this video,]] he got his wish.
*** [[Film/TheRoom "Oh hai doggie."]]
* HypocriticalHumor: In the second part of his [[http://spoonyexperiment.com/2009/06/25/transformers-revenge-of-the-fallen-review/ Transformers review]] with his brother (not as Spoony, though), there comes this gem of a line:
--> '''Noah/Spoony:''' Who the fuck has movie posters on their walls, really.
** Hint: [[spoiler: they're sitting in front of movie posters.]]
** In fact, Noah has so many movie posters that nearly all his reviews have appropriate posters for that review in the background.
* IllBoy: He has a heart condition, and suffers from depression (and a possible sleep disorder).
** On June 26, 2012 he revealed he has been diagnosed as having [[https://twitter.com/TheSpoonyOne/status/217733734441549825 Bipolar II Disorder.]]
*** Which he commented on as being the [[{{Sequelitis}} ''sequel'']] to normal Bipolar disorder.
* INeedAFreakingDrink: After watching Literature/{{Twilight}}: Breaking Dawn Part I. Has stated he rarely drinks, but this seems no longer to be the case as he seems to drink fairly regularly now.
* ItWillNeverCatchOn: When ''Wrestle! Wrestle!'' was still running (in 2010) he made it very clear that he didn't think DanielBryan would ever amount to anything. However, he's willing to admit he was wrong.
* ManOfAThousandVoices: Noah has a good range for impersonations, his ChristopherWalken is incredible, and he does a damn good [[strike:HulkHogan]] Hoakogan, [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} Ultimate Warrior]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tu8R14d_8jc Arnold Schwarzenegger]], and "Macho Man" RandySavage.
** [[CreatorBreakdown However, Noah seems to suffer from bouts of depression likely from his Bipolar Disorder, which can turn him into a royal jackass even off-camera.]] To his credit, he admits that this is no excuse and tries to make up for it whenever possible.
* MrFixit: He is very tech-savvy. He once ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome fixed the Atari Jaguar CD to the point where it was briefly playable]].''
* PapaWolf: Probably the only thing that [[{{Kayfabe}} legitimately]] pisses him off is when insults are directed towards his friends and family. (Given his fanbase's [[FanDumb usual behavior]], expect this to happen often.)
** That, or [[RogerEbert someone]] saying anyone who is a fanboy is living an "idiotic lifestyle".
* PolarOppositeTwins: His brother Miles is reportedly''much'' [[TheQuietOne different]] [[TheStoic from]] Noah.
* RedOniBlueOni: Between him and his brother, Miles, he's definitely the red one: loud, boisterous, and a lover of the spotlight. Miles is quiet, probably more responsible, and the voice of reason.
* ScheduleSlip: Noah's myriad health issues and personal problems tend to get in the way, so much so that he doesn't even bother creating a ''tentative'' schedule for his videos any more.
* ShoutOut: ''Tons'', both to pop culture and other [[Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses Channel Awesome]] personalities.
* StupidSexyFlanders: Would go gay for [[Film/ThreeHundred David]] [[DeadliestWarrior Wenham's]] voice.
* TalkingToHimself: Besides the basic 'exaggerated snarker persona' he puts on as "The Spoony One", Noah portrays a number of different characters on the show, some one-off and some recurring:
** Dr Insano, a MadScientist alter ego who swiftly proved to be a BreakoutCharacter.
*** Also his Vice-President, FuManchu, in a one-off appearance.
** Gordon Ramsay in his review of the ''Series/HellsKitchen'' video game.
** "Curtis Craig" (or at least a "Spoony" version of him) at the end of his ''Phantasmagoria 2'' LetsPlay.
** "The Ultimate Spoony", a parodic exaggeration of the UltimateWarrior.
** "Hulk Spogan", same idea but with HulkHogan.
** A one-time appearance as The Iron Sheik, in the same fashion as the previous two.
** Squall of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' in his review of that game.
*** The ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'' reviews give us Tidus, Yuna and [[spoiler:Sephiroth]], respectively.
** "Spoonette", a ValleyGirl [[GenderBender female Spoony]] seen in the ''Party Mania'' review.
** The Gate Cleaner, supposedly the nephew of the Gate Keeper from the ''Nightmare'' VHS game series.
** Spencer D. Bum (aka "The Spoony Bum"), a variation on Creator/DougWalker's [[WebVideo/BumReviews Chester A. Bum]] character.
** Spoontock of the Klingon Empire in [[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe's]] review of ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline''
** Terl, the {{Camp}}y LargeHam villain of ''Film/BattlefieldEarth'', showed up in WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's review of that film; the character proved so popular that he then started appearing in Spoony's own reviews.
** Simcoe the Magician in his review of ''{{Skullduggery}}''.

* ChivalrousPervert: He's ''very'' open about his turn-ons, and never fails to appreciate the female body. But woe be to those who would mistreat a woman on his watch....
* CreatorBreakdown: Sadly, and repeatedly. He had undiagnosed Bipolar II for years. Everyone thought that he just had depression and was put on antidepressants. This can make the mania episodes really really bad.

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Noah in person is a lot less abrasive (and depraved) than "The Spoony One".



* MrFanservice: People watch the show for more then his jokes....

* BecomingTheMask: Some detractors claim he's become as angry and acerbic as TheSpoonyOne, particularly in how he treats his fans. This depends largely on whether or not one qualifies his targets as FanDumb.
