Caddicarus is a British YouTuber known for his in-depth video game reviews and retrospectives. 

Most of his content revolves around diving deep into a certain topic related to a video game and dissecting them to the best of his abilities, and a recent example of this is his forty-minute video about the illegal world of Crash Bandicoot Bootlegs.

Caddicarus has been a fixture on gaming Youtube since he joined the platform on September 10, 2011, and posted his first video in 2012. He has also been a member of the Hidden Block collective since March 2013, the creation of the website.

He has come a long way from making video audition tapes for the Normal Boots gaming collective to gaining a million subscribers and being an elder statesman in the world of Youtube gaming.

Caddicarus keeps thriving while his compatriots keep falling left and right due to controversy.

Who Is Caddicarus' Wife, Cerys Mackay?

Cerys Mackay is not married to Caddicarus, but they are in a relationship and have been so for a while.

Not much is known about Caddicarus's girlfriend outside of her relation to him. However, she has been a part of his circle since 2015. 

Mackay was born in London, United Kingdom, and is a Scorpio. She is also a theatre actress who has been on and off-broadway, in regional theatre, and on film and television.

She began acting in 2007, but her IMDB page only goes back to 2014. Her first credit is as herself in short called PIXIE ESCAPED.

Following this, she worked as a producer, director, cinematographer, and editor on the Puppicarus Show, which she also created for five episodes from 2015 to 2016. These five episodes are:

  • Cooking with Puppicarus
  • Walking the Dog
  • A 2015 Christmas Message
  • Dating
  • Thoughts on "The Revenant"

She was a member of the CINEMAGGOTS television series in 2016. Besides this, she has also had acting credits in Caddicarus and Cadicarus: The Compete Seasons.

She has appeared in eleven episodes in the former and seven in the latter, playing an exaggerated version of herself for humorous moments throughout the two series.

Mackay is significantly older than her lover as she was born on November 9, 1981, and is forty years old, compared to her lover, who was born on June 19, 1994, and is twenty-eight years old.

Mackay has taken a bit of a break from appearing in her lover's videos, as her last appearance was back in 2018. According to Caddicarus, she's become slightly camera shy recently and prefers to stay in the background.

Does Caddicarus Have Any Children?

Gaming Youtuber Caddicarus has no biological children, but his lover Cerys Mackay has three children.

Her three children are from a previous relationship, though she hasn't mentioned the names of any of her previous lovers.

The three children, all daughters, are called Amy, Phoebe, and Chloe. Not much is known about them, except that Chloe is 21, Phoebe is 15, Amy has a parrot, and Phoebe has an Instagram where she posts pictures of her drawing.

By all accounts, Caddicarus is an amazing stepfather and loves spending time with Phoebe and Amy. As Chloe lives on her own and is closer to his age, there aren't as many fatherly activities on that front. 

Caddicarus and Mackay are very much in love, as their social media shows. The two are very fond of sharing pictures of each other on their Instagram, especially Mackay, who not only loves posting pictures of the Youtuber but also captioning them with loving words like "mine" or "all mine."

Despite their age difference, Mackay and Caddicarus don't seem to have many problems in their relationship. A factor that eases the relationship is the fact that they have similar interests. 

Their similar interests are in gaming, popular media, and wildlife. Caddicarus shares his interests with Mackay's daughters too.

Caddicarus's paternal instincts have gotten to his fans, and they have humorously given him nicknames like "Daddicarus" or "Daddy Caddy." The Youtuber has taken to these nicknames admirably and even carries them with pride as it shows how committed he is to his found family.

How Much Is Caddicarus's Net Worth?

The gaming YouTuber Caddicarus has an estimated net worth of $500,000 as of 2022.

Caddicarus's net worth is through his YouTube channel, which is his main income source. 

He joined the platform on September 10, 2011, and uploaded his first video on May 9, 2012. Since then, he has released 513 videos.

His most popular video, entitled "The Cruel World of Getting ALL 202 Platinum Relics in Crash Bandicoot," has amassed 4.3 million views. Of the 513 videos uploaded on his channel, 78 have reached or surpassed a million views.

The five most popular videos on his channel are:

Title Views
The Cruel World of Getting ALL 202 Platinum Relics in Crash Bandicoot 4.3 Million
The Pitiful World of Pixar Games 4.2 Million
The Miserable World of Completing Crash Bandicoot 4 4.1 Million
The Stupid World of Portable Crash Bandicoot Games 4 Million
The Nightmare World of Dreamworks Games 3.9 Million

The list shows Caddicarus's strength: making in-depth videos about video games that most people don't think about. Not many people make content about games made by multi-billion animation companies or a franchise like Crash Bandicoot, which has largely fallen out of favor with the public.

Each of the videos listed above is an hour minimum and sometimes even stretches to an hour and a half. It's a format that Caddicarus has mastered and through which he has gotten a lot of people into his world.

Though a net worth of $500,000 might seem less compared to all the other Youtubers who have been on the platform for as long as he has, Caddicarus makes content that is very particular to him, and more importantly, he is doing what he loves.

How Does Caddicarus Make Money?

Gaming Youtuber Caddicarus makes money through his Youtube videos, paid promotion, and his Patreon.

Like most other YouTubers, Caddicarus makes money through AdSense, which is how Youtube pays most of its content creators. After taking its cut, the website pays creators $2-$12 per 1000 monetized views.

The longer a viewer watches the video, the more the payment veers towards $12 than $2. As the Youtuber makes very long, focused videos driven by not only a narrative but an intention to show something, which is most often the point of the particular video, one can assume that he retains viewership.

For many of his videos, more specifically the recent ones, the Youtuber also has paid promotions, which are sponsorships.

The Youtuber advertises a product that he has been paid to do so. As his channel revolves around gaming, many of the products he advertises are gaming related or about some aspects of nerd culture. 

Finally, the Youtuber has a Patreon, a monthly donation service where people can support their favorite creators by donating a set amount every Month.

Most YouTubers have a tier system where the supporter gets more perks the higher tier they are. Caddicarus is no different, and here are his tiers:

Tier Number Payment Tier Name Perks
Tier 1 $1 Per Month Caddy's Compliments The member gets a hearty thank you from Caddicarus
Tier 2 $3 Per Month Caddy's Cords The member gets access to Caddicarus's exclusive Discord server
Tier 3 $6 Per Month Caddy's Credits
  • The member gets every single Caddicarus video early
  • The members don't have to worry about any ads or sponsorships
  • The member gets access to Patreon-only polls where they can decide what games Caddicarus streams on Twitch
  • The member is in the credits of every Caddicarus video he uploads

Caddicarus's Career Earnings

Strictly looking at the views on his channel, Caddicarus has made $3,413,671 in his entire Youtube career.

This amount is calculated by looking at his total views, which are 284,472,654, against the $2-$12 scale provided in the section above. The amount is also brought about under the assumption that Caddicarus earns $12 per each 1000 monetized views he gets on his videos.

The YouTuber also has a second channel, called Caddy Plays, which he started on August 24, 2013. The channel focuses on collating the Youtuber's streams. Since its inception, it has amassed 108K subscribers. It has collected 7,380,272 total views, meaning that Caddicarus has made $88,563 off this channel.

The abovementioned amounts are calculated to bring his total earnings to $3,502,234. However, this amount only takes his total earnings by views into account.

There is also the money that the Youtuber has made through sponsorships and paid promotions. Caddicarus has not revealed how much he has made through his sponsorships to his fans.

Lastly, the YouTuber also makes income through his Patreon account. He has 722 Patrons, and regardless of their tier, the Youtuber is raking thousands of dollars a month through the donation service. 


What Is Caddicarus's Real Name?

Gaming YouTuber Caddicarus's real name is Jim Caddick, although his birth name is James. 

He has stated that he always hated his name and disliked using James as a signifier. On December 11, 2016, he announced to his fans on Twitter that he would be going by Jim instead of James.

His fans had already been calling him Caddy, so there was no big change regarding them.

Not satisfied with just going by Jim, the Youtuber legally changed his name from James to Jim on January 1, 2021. He has gone by Jim ever since. He has never stated why he dislikes his birth name except that he doesn't like it. This mystery has led to some speculation amongst his fans. 

How Did Caddicarus Get Started On YouTube?

The YouTuber Caddicarus created his channel when he was only 17 though his initial videos were very different from what they are now.

The videos he created then were random comedy sketches and music videos similar to that of fellow Youtuber Tobuscus, who was also his main inspiration at the time.

These videos only brought him 200 subscribers, so the Youtuber changed his content and started making video game reviews, covering the Playstation 1 game Rascal Racers, in May 2012. Caddicarus made these reviews as an audition tape for Normal Boots, but they rejected Caddy.

However, he'd gotten the content creation bug and kept at it, and his channel grew alongside his efforts. 

Where Is Caddicarus From?

Gaming YouTuber Caddicarus was born on June 19, 1994, in Aylesbury Vale, Buckinghamshire, England.

Though he was born in Aylesbury Vale, Buckinghamshire, he currently resides in Hereford, where he lives with his girlfriend and two of her three children.

Though he reviews all sorts of retro games, his favorite console is the Playstation 1. His favorite game from the console is Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus, and he has the main character Abe's hand scars tattooed on his hands, which he did in 2015.

His favorite game of all time, though, is Bloodborne. Despite having a great love of the game and other games from that generation, Caddicarus strictly sticks to games from the retro era to make content to make himself stand out and because he enjoys them.

What Shows Does Caddicarus Run On His Channel?

Caddicarus is fond of separating the various content he does on his channel into shows. 

He only has one show on his channel called "The Caddicarus Show," which is his main show that covers video games, franchises, top 10s, and occasionally non-gaming-related topics.

He also has special shows such as:

  • Bandicoot Month: an annual show since 2017. The Month of June sees Caddicarus cover Crash Bandicoot almost exclusively. Fans jokingly refer to June as Junedicoot.
  • The Cadvent Calendar: The 2016 Christmas Special where Caddicarus counted down his top 25 favorite games.
  • The Badvent Calender: The 2018 Christmas Special, where Caddicarus counted down his top 25 favorite games.

He has also had many shows that are now defunct:

  • Current Quickies
  • Caddy's Retrospectives
  • Tinker Time
  • Drive-Thru Reviews
  • Today's Special
  • The Puppicarus Show
  • Caddy's Film Fridays/CINEMAGGOTS
