The Bowlingotter Show! *dong*

"Hi, I'm Bowlingotter!"
"And I'm LissySandwich!"
"And welcome to the B.S.!"

Matthew (A.K.A. Bowlingotter) and Lissy (A.K.A. LissySandwich) Buckley are a husband-and-wife, YouTube-based Let's Play duo who host The Bowlingotter Show, released on Matt's main channel. They are best known for Let's Plays of horror games (both mainstream and indie), but have also done playthroughs of games in various other genres. The channel also hosts some game reviews and original music.

As of late 2020, the channel has around 110,000 subscribers. On October 31, 2016, the duo celebrated the birth of their first child (affectionately referred to as "Babyotter").

The Bowlingotter Show can be watched right here.

As of June 2017, they hired Conner Goad (A.K.A Keeper) as their editor, who handles the editing of all videos apart from small vlogs and announcements. Keeper has his own channel as well, which can be found here.

    Games Matt and Lissy have played 

The Bowlingotter Show contains examples of:

  • Affectionate Nickname: Lissy has several for Matt which involve his last name, including "Buckets," "Buckwheat," and "Buckwalter."
  • Berserk Button: Matt hates first-person platforming and will quickly start spouting Angrish whenever faced with it.
  • Chroma Key: Their videos eventually start incorporating a green screen to remove the backgrounds of their facecams.
  • Cute Kitten: Louie, who regularly appears in the vlogs and is generally too cute for words. Sadly, Louie has now passed away, but the duo now possess two equally cute kittens.
  • Epic Fail: Sometimes prone to this. A rather egregious example was the two forgetting Cuphead's ability to air dash, causing them to be stuck at the beginning of a Run 'n' Gun level.
  • First-Name Ultimatum: Matt will usually earn a loud "MATTHEW!" from Lissy every time he makes a cheeky decision during a game, such as taking unnecessary risks.
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: Zig-zagged. Both hosts are pretty good at keeping their own language within the G-to-PG range, even if the games they play have significantly harsher profanity. But on occasion they'll let a Precision F-Strike slip, usually when startled during a horror game. With the birth of their son, both Lissy and Matt have been making even more of an effort to dial down profanity in recent videos.
    Lissy: I'm trying to integrate the word heckin' into my vocabulary.
  • Happily Married: They certainly seem to be this. They have engaged in the same affectionate banter with each other since their show began in 2012.
