PaymoneyWubby (real name Dennis Richardson) is an American comedy YouTuber/Twitch Streamer who makes videos and streams for the sake of entertainment or to review/provide criticism of different types of online media. He runs his twitch alongside his manager Allux.

Originally, on his youtube channel he would often review and make fun of terrible steam games he found online, however, he later started making commentary videos which picked up traction, causing him to shift the focus of the channel away from gaming and now only focusing on making commentary on different things he found online, primarily other YouTubers/youtube videos.

He also runs a Twitch channel, on which he is much more active than his Youtube, the focus of his Twitch is mainly comedic, often allowing viewers to send in videos via media share or doing try not to laugh challenges in which he or his manager Alex lose money if they fail.

While his content is lighthearted in general, some of his videos on his youtube channel do take on a more serious tone, having him expose and bring attention to material he finds online that he finds to be inappropriate.

This series provides examples of:

  • Actually Pretty Funny: In Kids Doing ASMR Is A Problem, Wubby has this reaction when he sees a kid try to do a spa ASMR video, but when trying to swish mouthwash he is unable to handle it and spits it out, causing Wubby to laugh hysterically.
  • Alcohol-Induced Idiocy: Wubby and Alex have a habit of getting drunk on stream and acting like complete maniacs.
  • Animal Lover: Wubby and Alex appear to be this, owning two cats. Wubby was also shown to be completely disgusted at the fake animal rescue videos and Brooke Houts.
  • Audience Participation: Does this a lot during Twitch streams, most commonly with his media share and fan unboxing series but will also bring in fans for other unique events.
  • Advertisement:
  • Bait-and-Switch: The video I made the worst Instagram recipes so you don't have to ends up being this, throughout the video Wubby claims he will be making one of the recipes, implying that he will have a portion of the video be of him making the recipe, only for him to reveal that he made it live on Twitch, and the video only shows small snip-its from the stream.
  • Berserk Button: Twitch banning people and taking their careers away seems to be this for Wubby, he genuinely becomes angry throughout, even going as far as to say that Twitch is destroying lives for streamers who live paycheck to paycheck.
  • Big "WHAT?!": Happens a lot, especially in his video about Life With Mak and Atozy.
  • Black Comedy: Pretty much any serious video Wubby has made will have moments where he pokes fun at it, but particularly his video about white supremacy has several jokes surrounding racism.
  • Blatant Lies: Pretty much everything the Angelic Initiative said about Wubby when making their comments about working with him, even causing Wubby to make a video outlining how wrong they were.
  • Catchphrase: "We gotta get the cans on."
  • Caught on Tape:
    • During his video on fake animal rescues, Wubby discovers that in one video, the people who made the video literally left in the part where they put the dog in the dangerous situation, proving how little they cared about hiding the fact they were abusing the dog in their videos.
    • Brooke Houts accidentally uploading the unedited version of her video where she abuses her dog, something that leaves Wubby in complete disbelief.
  • Cerebus Syndrome: Zig-Zagged. While Wubby's videos and style have remained light-hearted and mainly him making fun of dumb stuff he's found online, every now and again he will make a more serious video, some even being outright sad and depressing to watch.
  • Corpsing: Very common in his videos, often intentional as it makes his jokes even funnier.
  • Christmas Episode: Will often do Christmas-themed streams during the Christmas season, once he even uploaded a cutdown version of his stream The Price is Scuffed! to his channel.
  • Deadpan Snarker: His humor can often be this, but it does seem more present in his videos than Twitch streams.
  • Developers' Foresight: Wubby often makes comments during streams about how they'll need to edit it in a specific way for the highlight channel, or even directly address the camera and tell the editors to put in a specific edit or gag when cutting down the stream.
  • Different in Every Episode: The aforementioned catchphrase is often tweaked in some humorous way.
  • Downer Ending: The videos on Nuka Zeus and The Angelic Initiative.

  • #HashtagForLaughs: While looking at Tiktok challenges, Wubby encounters #Holocaust.
  • Hell Is That Noise: In the video Spiritual Channeling and the Return of Fake Animal Rescues Wubby covers an ASMR Youtuber who eats liver, and when he starts eating it he turns up the audio gain to extremely high levels, so you can hear every bite and gross mouth noise. Wubby himself is visibly grossed out at the audio and even has to clarify that he did not edit it.
  • Humiliation Conga: WE TRIED GIANT FEAR PONG Ends up being one for Wubby, as his punishments end up being a lot worse, and also he loses the challenge, and his chat in general usually side with Alex over him.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: Pretty much everything from the clown lifestyle or the clifestylenote , as it appears to create conjunctions of most words with the word "clown", creating clairnote , cleriodnote , clatersnote , and clatenote . Wubby even starts making puns himself, although he does have his limits.
    Wubby: (reading video description) Ok, this is a stretch here sweatheart, clworld?note  C'mon. Dumb Bitch...
  • Inelegant Blubbering: This is what Wubby does after getting a pie shoved in his face and when Alex dumps water on him during his sleep stream.
  • Inherently Funny Words: All of the "clifestyle" words mentioned above.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Downplayed. Wubby often acts like an asshole, but he clarifies in Meaning, Acceptance, and Kind of BS that this is just an act for the sake of comedy.
  • Jumpscare: Happens inadvertently to Wubby during the gummy bear stream, as he is on edge from having eaten so many, and some viewers play the "Indian moan" sound clip to startle him.
  • Kick the Dog: Wubby and Alex often do this after the other loses a streaming challenge.
  • Mood Whiplash: Happens pretty heavily during his interview with Nuka Zeus, after Wubby brings up Zeus' Livestream he completely shuts down and asks to move on, and in the cutdown version on Wubby's channel the interview then cuts off so Wubby can talk about some of the serious issues surrounding the situation.
  • Only Sane Man: Averted with Alex, at first she seems like the sane man to Wubby, but the more streams you watch you realize that she too enjoys acting like a total goof on stream, just not on Wubby's level.
  • OOC Is Serious Business:
    • Both the video on fake animal rescues and Brooke Houts, he does make jokes about it but at several times does break character to call out how messed up what they're doing is.
    • During his video on Twitch, there is a scarce amount of jokes, and Wubby is directly addressing the moderation team at Twitch, genuinely enraged at how poorly they are handling people's careers and livelihoods.
  • Overly Long Name: Wubby and Alex's second cat is apparently named "HP Office Jet Pro 6978 Wireless All-In-One Instant Ink Ready Printer".
  • Parody:
    • Often parodies game shows during his Twitch Stream.
    • During his video about Life With Mak and Atozy, he parodies an interview Mak gave with Insider.
  • Precision F-Strike: While he swears a lot, he gives a pretty harsh one during his video on Twitch bans.

    • The Indian guy moaning.
  • Sarcasm Mode: He does this a lot, but it's particularly present in I made the worst Instagram recipes so you don't have to.
  • Self-Deprecation: Pretty much every joke Wubby makes about his weight, even once comparing himself to the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man.
  • Sentimental Drunk: Wubby appears to be this, often getting way more affectionate towards Alex when he's been drinking. This is best seen in WE TRIED GIANT FEAR PONG where he at first struggles to make compliments towards her as part of a punishment, but as he drinks more he starts complimenting her non-stopnote , even congratulating her when she makes a shot despite that meaning he will have to do a punishment. He even tries to cheer her up after she gets a pie to the face, something they usually make fun of each other over. And then he does this.
    Alex: What are you doing?
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Swears constantly, but it's usually to punctuate what he's saying to make it more funny.
  • Skewed Priorities: Wubby's reason for including hand-cam is "for the ladies".
  • Suddenly Shouting: Very common as a reaction when he's watching videos, he even has to mute himself sometimes during editing since he will peak his microphone yelling.
