AngryJoeShow started playing video games when he was small after a family friend gave them his Sega Genesis. One of his favorite games to play with his friends was MechWarrior 3050. He later started playing PC games on his dad’s Pentium 486 with one of his first PC games being XCOM: Enemy Unknown. The first video game that he bought himself was Inca II.
When he was young, he and his friends would rent video games from the video store every weekend.
He started uploading his rant content to YouTube on October 4, 2008 from there, he soon began creating parody content, review content and news content, as well as other gaming-related content. He got started because he found himself bored at work, as he would get all of his work done during the first half of the day and have nothing to do during the second. So, he decided to attempt content creation and would conceptualize his new content during his downtime at work so that he could actualize it once he got home.
AngryJoeShow took content creation seriously from the beginning and would often put in 80-hour weeks to try to encourage growth. When this finally started happening, he decided to quit his office job at Dell to pursue fulltime content creation. He started streaming on Twitch in February 2009, back when it was still justin.tv.
His channel steadily grew so that by March 2012, he had reached 100,000 subscribers. As he grew, he expanded his team to assist with video editing and marketing his brand.

According to Twitchstats, AngryJoeShow has around 3,200 subscribers and generally attracts over 1,100 viewers to his streams. This means that he should be receiving a monthly income of at least $12,200 USD. This is before taking into account additional income from tiered subscriptions, advertisements, sponsorships, merchandise sales, tips, Twitch cheer bit contributions, and Patreon donations.
