Well, where do we begin?
Many moons ago (2016 to be precise) Matt and Joe started talking about streaming stuff online on Twitch. This started off with the “One at Work/One at Home” series. This channel on Twitch was called The Fairly Odd Pairing.
Whilst browsing Facebook one day, Matt saw an advert for Macmillan Cancer Support’s Game Changers. An initiative that gets streamers to stream for a whole 24 hours straight in order to raise money for charity. Speaking to Joe about this, he was down for the challenge. But we decided that we would need a couple more people to help out.
Enter Brad and Simon. These two stepped in and completed the team. Obviously at this point we was no longer a pairing, so settled on the name Fairly Odd Friends as that what we were, a bunch of friends which get together to play games and hopefully raise some money at the same time.
And the rest the say, was history…..

Matt has a wide range of video game consoles collected, ranging from the Atari 2600 all the way through the SNES/Mega Drive and up to the Xbox One and WiiU. Also, used to hair believe it or not.

Long time friend of Matt, the other member of the original Fairly Odd Pairing. Tries to steady the ship when things go off on a tangent with a nice expletive laden rant. Somehow manages to balance streaming with looking after a little one with his wife. Top fella. Likes to play games such as FIFA, WWE and has now taken a liking to Trove too. Oh, and likes to cry into sausage rolls when he is losing.
Joe actually has shoulders the size of a small child. Shame about the rest though.
Supports: West Ham United FC
Also known online as: Brawler, Brid and a few I can’t really write here
The resident fake American. Pretty certain would rather be over in the US than here. Likes Madden, FIFA, Rainbox Six and those sort of games. For some reason anything that isn’t a Xbox is terrible (Idiotic decision). Likes to fish on the internet.
Actually has his own hashtag, which gets used quite often in our conversations. #BradLogic. I’ll let you figure out why.
Supports: Arsenal FC
Also known online as: Jonesy (normally with some numbers after it? Who knows why)
The young one of the group, has a unhealthy obsession with mini-rolls. Likes Fortnite, CoDWWII and games in that genre. Hates Rainbow Six, and PUBG on the Xbox (seriously, don’t get the lad started!).
Is half Welsh, but is petrified of sheep….. #Irony
