"I mean, who the hell does he think he is? He's nobody! All he did was spend most of his free time making a series of amusing cartoon videos available to the public, completely free of charge!"Few people can be credited with starting an entire genre. In 1818, Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein, launching the entire field of Science Fiction. In 1841, Edgar Allan Poe wrote "The Murders in the Rue Morgue", singlehandedly creating the Detective-Story genre....and in 2006, Little Kuriboh (born Martin Piers Billany) one of a few, blessed people, joined their ranks.For fun, he made a Gag Dub of Yu-Gi-Oh!, but instead of doing the whole episode, he followed the abridging format of some online scripts. He called his video Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series, and thus The Abridged Series was born.Later on he started Naruto The Abridged Comedy Fandub Spoof Series Show, first as an April Fools' Day prank, but then decided to make some more. Another work of his is Marik Plays Bloodlines.He also has a version of Dan Green, and plays him as an egotistical jerk who thinks Girls Have Cooties.His YouTube account (which was originally meant as an in-character account for the Abridged Series version of Yugi, but was appropriated by Little Kuriboh himself after his original account was banned) can usually be seen here, except it has an unfortunate tendency to get banned. Current Status: not bannedHe also has Twitter account, which he frequently updates. He got married to West Coast voice actress Marianne Miller (who has had guest appearances on his work way before that).He is also associated with Team Fourstar, the group behind Dragon Ball Abridged, and, by extension, That Guy with the Glasses. He's also made at least two guest appearances on Atop the Fourth Wall, two on The Spoony Experiment, and one on The Nostalgia Critic's review of Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea.He is a fan of The Slender Man Mythos, following Everyman HYBRID and taunting HABIT every chance he gets, and occasionally doing Let's Plays with the cast of Marble Hornets. Heart of the Cards help him.
