Doug Walker is an American actor, comedian, movie critic, media personality, and YouTuber.
Based in Chicago, Walker is known for portraying the obscene and nerdy character Nostalgia Critic, a media critic who evaluates material deemed to be nostalgic or pertinent to western pop culture.
After finishing college, he worked as an illustrator to make a living. In his leisure time, he began creating videos for YouTube, where his early uploads featuring the 5-second movies of well-known movies and his “Nostalgia Critic” persona caught viewers’ attention.
Along with his successful personal life, Walker relishes an equally blissful marital life. The comedian has been in a long-term relationship with his wife, Robin Poage.
Who is Doug Walker’s wife Robin Poage?
As mentioned earlier, Walker and Poage have been together for a long time — they shared the wedding vows on June 15, 2012. Like Walker, Poage is an actress and TV personality, but most people remember her through her relationship with her husband.
Born on November 6, 1983, Poage had a very typical childhood. During her teenage years, the Lombard, Illinois native mainly focused on dance and her aspirations of becoming a well-known person in the future.
She played badminton, worked on her acting with the theater club at her high school, and occasionally played soccer with her male friends to occupy her free time.
She graduated in 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts in psychology from Greenville College, where she had enrolled in 2001. She continued her studies by joining Aurora University, where she graduated with a Master’s degree in social work in 2009.
In the same year, Walker and Robin first met at a charity event, then a month later, Doug proposed to Robin at yet another charity event. They dated for around three years and collaborated on Doug’s films before being married in a small wedding that was only attended by a select group of their closest friends and family.
Robin isn’t active on the internet since she dislikes social media sites and thinks they simply serve to negatively affect individuals. Fans have been on Twitter talking about her based on pictures of her as she has gained weight.
Doug Walker’s Wikipedia explored
Apart from himself, Doug has a brother named Robert “Rob” Walker, who has assisted Doug in posting his media critiques at first independently. Additionally, Robert could be frequently seen taking the roles of “Chart Guy,” a satirical business analyst dressed in a power suit, and “Santa Christ,” in Nostalgia Critic sketches.
Doug’s Nostalgia Critic character has been known to receive a personal reaction from stars and celebrities and may occasionally praise a performer in a movie that he considers to be generally poor. Especially Mara Wilson, a former child actress who had acted in two films that Doug deemed bad.
He has said that the Queen of Hearts, Daffy Duck, Lewis Black, Stephen Colbert, and Bill Murray are among the sources of inspiration for the Nostalgia Critic persona.
Doug transferred his sketches from YouTube to the independent website That Guy With the Glasses during the Great Recession in 2008–2009 and then to Channel Awesome.
The majority of his sketches, which make up a whole web series spanning multiple seasons, are available on YouTube. Walker is currently employed full-time at Channel Awesome in Chicago as a content developer, reporting to CEO Mike Michaud.
