Timothy Delaghetto Interview
Published; June 7, 2015
Can you firstly introduce yourself and your channel?
What up? My name’s Timothy DeLaGhetto and my channel consists of comedy skits, raps and the occasional relationship advice for all the lost young teenage children out there.
So when did you first start your YouTube channel?
Man I’m kinda like OG in the game. I’ve been on YouTube since like ’06 actually just kind of uploading stupid videos from my bedroom on the webcam you know?
So since you’ve been around since 2006 you’ve seen this massive change in consumption of these videos and growth. So you started off part time and now you’re a full time YouTuber. How has that growth changed your life?
I mean YouTube completely changed my life. I just started out for fun you know. I started off trying to be an actor doing the whole traditional thing and making short films with my friends that weren’t really going anywhere and I just started putting videos on YouTube to make my friends on Myspace laugh.
Oh god we remember Myspace don’t we…[laughs]
Oh yeah! Myspace is a website where people used to post pictures in case your readers don’t know what I’m talking about [laughs]. So since there weren’t a lot of people doing it back then and the more popular it became I started to make a bit of money and I thought this is crazy! I’m going to school, still trying to get a degree, just trying to make my parents proud. But eventually it got to a point where I was mediocre at school and YouTube and actually I took the first semester off because I had an opportunity to do my first show in Australia. I was like school’s going to be there I’m going to Australia you know? And I just never went back to school after that [laughs].
Tell me about that experience, doing shows in Australia?
Australia shows me mad love man, Australia cunt. I know what’s up!
We’ll publish that [laughs].
I mean I love Australia! I’ve done shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane you know I even say it right Mel-ben, Bris-ben I don’t say Mel-Born anymore.
Yeah I can tell you’ve been there because you say it correctly.
Yeah man Adelaide, Perth all those cities.
Oh my god you are Australian!
Basically [laughs]. I always have fun in Australia, the girls are hot and the weather is hot, it’s a good time.
So what have you been up to over the past 12 months?
I’ve been travelling a lot, if Australians don’t know I’ve been on a couple of TV shows in the States so that’s been keeping me busy as well and it’s all thanks to YouTube too man. I’ve just been trying to take everything I’m doing now and take it to the next 10 levels.
Nice, and you’ve been involved in some of these YouTube FanFests before? Or is this your first one?
I did last years Singapore FanFest as a spur of the moment thing. I was in Singapore doing another event and just piggy backed on the event and some other FanFest stuff. I’ve done a few fan fests in Toronto as well.
So 22,000 people in attendance in at YouTube FanFest in Toronto. When you step out in front of an audience of 22,000 people do you ever think where do these people come from?
Well that’s the interesting thing about YouTube. I can have like 2 million followers on YouTube and then go to the mall and no one will know who I am right? But when you go to a YouTube event it’s all these people from everywhere who are just obsessed with YouTube, with the culture, the videos and they just congregate and they go crazy for it.
So what’s on your horizon for the rest of the year?
2015 is a big year for me. I haven’t put out new music since 2013 so I’m trying to finally put out a new project, I’m also working on a book which I’ve been wanting to do for a while now. It’s kind of the move for YouTubers but mine’s going to be way better than all the other YouTuber books [laughs].
Yeah and just take a break from doing shows actually and concentrate on putting out more content, possibly do some film stuff: just want to elevate what I’m doing.
So you’ll be all over the place then, watch out for Timothy DeLaGhetto! Hopefully another tour to Australia?
That’d be great I love Australia, I miss Australia: I’m ready!
