Lazarbeam (Lannan Eacott) is an Australian YouTuber, professional gamer, and internet celebrity best known for his video game commentary videos, “comedic riffs” and memes.
While working in his family’s construction business, Eacott began making slow-motion demolition videos in 2014. Eacott began posting Let’s Play and challenge videos of various video games on his current YouTube account in 2015. As his channel rose in popularity, his video content style shifted to include more vlogs and comedy videos.
When he started publishing Fortnite Battle Royale videos on his channel in 2018, he saw a significant increase in popularity. Eacott was named YouTube’s sixth most-viewed content producer of the year in December 2019, with 2 billion views in 2019.
His two YouTube channels had over 21 million members and 7 billion video views as of April 2021, with his primary channel ranked as the third most-subscribed and third most-viewed channel on the platform from Australia.
LazarBeam was born in December 1994 in Central Coast, New South Wales, Australia.
Career and records
At the age of fifteen, Eacott dropped out of high school and began working in his family’s construction business. Under the alias “CrushSlash” he began posting slow-motion destruction footage on YouTube.
Following the theft of his recording equipment, he created the “LazarBeam” YouTube gaming channel on January 4, 2015, using the name of one of his former RuneScape characters. Eacott primarily concentrated on video game commentary and challenge videos for the Madden NFL video game series.
When he started playing Fortnite Battle Royale in 2018, his channel’s popularity skyrocketed. On September 18, 2018, Eacott and other Australian gaming stars were unveiled as members of the inaugural roster of the entertainment collective Click (also known as the Click Crew).
10 million subscribers
In April 2019, his channel surpassed 10 million followers, making him the second Australian gaming content creator to do so. With over 10.8 million followers and over 7 billion video views as of July 2019, Eacott was the third most-subscribed YouTube Fortnite streamer. Eacott and other streams were critical of Fortnite Battle Royale’s tenth season, which debuted in August 2019 and added the “B.R.U.T.E”—a mechanical suit with missile launchers and a massive shotgun. The addition was labelled “overpowered and unbalanced”.
Following this, Eacott’s production of Minecraft-related films increased, however, he welcomed an update that limited the mechanical suit’s abilities. Following the release of the game’s second chapter in October 2019, the focus of Eacott’s videos turned even more away from Fortnite; he expressed dissatisfaction with the update’s lack of substance.
YouTube Rewind 2019
It was announced in October 2019 that Eacott would play himself in the 2020 film Free Guy, alongside streamers Ninja and Jacksepticeye. In December, Eacott was named the ninth most-viewed content creator of the year in YouTube’s 2019 end-of-year summary, YouTube Rewind 2019: For the Record, with 2 billion views in 2019.
According to Business Insider, he is well-known for his “comedic riffs” and use of memes. They also remarked on Eacott’s video editing style, which “uses a zoom in and spliced graphics to highlight his reactions, with a camera focused directly on his face as he sits in front of a computer screen.”
Eacott, along with fellow Australian YouTuber Elliott “Muselk” Watkins, struck an agreement with YouTube to solely stream on that platform on January 13, 2020; he had previously streamed on Twitch. Eacott and Watkins marked the occasion with a 12-hour live stream to raise funds for the ongoing Australian wildfire relief effort, which netted them $100,000.
Similarly, Eacott, Watkins, and the other members of Click completed a 36-hour charity broadcast for wildfire relief efforts earlier that month, raising over A$300,000. Eacott has a deal with Rooster Teeth and is repped by Click Management and WME.
Most-viewed video creator of 2020
Eacott’s stream peaked at nearly 900,000 concurrent viewers in June 2020, during Fortnite’s season-ending live event “The Device” The following month, Click declared that they would “stop filming [group] videos for the foreseeable future” due to the members’ desire to “spend time working on [their] own content”.
In December, YouTube named Eacott the ninth most-viewed video creator of 2020, as well as the sixth most-viewed gaming creator of the year and one of the top live streamers by views in 2020.
LazarBeam gets his own Fortnite skin
The LazarBeam skin was added to the game as a tribute to the player. With this latest announcement, he joins the ranks of global sensations such as Ninja and Lachlan Power, both of whom have had their own in-game skins.
The LazarBeam skin costume also includes a hard hat and tools, a nod to his previous employment before becoming a professional video maker. In between taking down adversaries, that character will occasionally dine on a meat pie.
The popular gamer took to Twitter to share his delight at receiving a whole skin in the game. In his post, he said it was “truly an honour” and “really funny to have a tradie in Fortnite.”
“Rather than doing something over the top with my skin, I wanted to honour my beginnings,” he explained.” He continued, “Never thought a scuffed kid like myself would achieve something like this, but I’m quite eager for people to run around in-game as Lazarbeam.”
