Craig Benzine WheezyWaiter
Benzine started out, together with his fellow Driftless Pony Club band members, on the channel “sambonejr”, co-starring in several short comical video clips, of which the first 19 videos were uploaded in March 2006.
Together with his friends Zaid Maxwell and Amelia Styer, Benzine also created an album and a movie to the album under the name Ozark Cousins, of which a sample is still commonly used in his WheezyWaiter videos as background music, which plays when Craig moves his chair.
After an unprofitable shift in 2007 at the restaurant in Chicago where he worked as a waiter, Benzine’s boss told him not to come into work the next day because he doubted there would be enough customers. Benzine, as a result, was worried about how he was going to get money to pay his rent.
On his day off, Benzine spent the entire day watching Ze Frank videos on YouTube and was inspired to start his own vlogging channel. The name “WheezyWaiter” referred to his waiter job at the time and asthma that he has had since birth.
Originally, the vlogs were centered around Benzine’s frustrations surrounding his job, but quickly grew to incorporate song parodies, cultural commentaries, and documentation of Benzine’s daily life with fictionalized elements added, such as sharing his apartment with a never-ending parade of clones of himself, as well as a whale, David Hasselhoff, and Michael Phelps.
Eventually, Benzine was hired as the video editor for a web development company and was able to quit his job as a waiter.
He continued to produce content for his YouTube channel, despite having a small audience, usually making videos in the morning before going to his office job. In 2013, he was featured in the documentary film Please Subscribe.
Benzine now works professionally as a video editor and vlogger. He continues to upload new content to his main channel, WheezyWaiter’s channel on YouTube, as well as to his more personal channel, WheezyNews, and others.
He no longer uploads daily videos on the WheezyNews channel. On February 16, 2016, he started making videos in the format of daily vlogs instead of his old format. On June 27, 2016, he stopped doing daily lifestyle vlogs and returned to making comedy videos.
