LazarBeam (real name – Lannan Eacott) is an Australian YouTuber with over 17.3 million subscribers on his main channel.
He gained fame through his Fortnite Battle Royale videos.
He was born on December 14, 1994, in Central Coast, New South Wales, Australia.
His family owns a construction business.
His sister, Tannar, is a photographer who has her own YouTube channel, with more than 1.18 million subscribers. Lannan also has two brothers, one of whom was a member of the Elizabethton Twins of the Appalachian League and the Gulf Coast League Twins.
Eacott dropped out of high school in the tenth grade. ”I dropped out at 15! Follow my lead kids,” he tweeted in 2016.
He joined YouTube on January 5, 2015. Eacott initially posted challenge videos on Madden NFL 16. Later, Lannan started to upload videos of Fortnite, Next Car Game: Wreckfest, The Sims 4, Among Us, Feed And Grow, Happy Wheels, Beam NG, Minecraft, and GTA V.
Eacott also has a second channel called ”Lazar,” where he publishes ”content that’s too scuffed for my main channel.”
In 2017, Lannan appeared as himself in the TV series – ”What Went Down” and ”Off Topic.”
Lannan reached 1 million subscribers on June 20, 2017.
In 2018, he appeared in the web-series ”Lifestyle Classic.”
In 2019, Eacott went head to head with PewDiePie in a Minecraft finale. Also in 2019, he was included in YouTube Rewind 2019: For the Record.
In January 2020, Lannan, along with Valkyrae and Muselk, inked an exclusive streaming deal with YouTube.
”2020 is poised to be even better than 2019 with the exciting content we know will be coming from LazarBeam, Muselk, and Valkyrae,” said YouTube’s Head of Gaming Ryan Wyatt. ”We’re so excited to have them be a part of our global live streaming family.”
At the end of September 2020, Lannan received a strike on his main YouTube channel. Eacott explained on his second channel that his suspension comes from a strike on a video of his from earlier in the year. To avoid another strike, he has deleted content worth 500 million views from his YouTube channel.
On November 23, Eacott got a second strike. ”Got another strike banned for two weeks. I’m gonna go play Runescape,” he tweeted. ”I am still recovering from the anxiety the last strike gave me.” The strike was lifted later that night. ”Had a lovely night of stress and anxiety, but my good friends at YouTube helped me out,” Eacott wrote.
In 2020, Lannan appeared in Free Guy, an SF action-comedy film about a man living in the video game universe. The film stars Taika Waititi, Ryan Reynolds, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Jodie Comer, Lil Rel Howery, and Joe Keery, as well as YouTuber Pokimane, Ninja, and Jacksepticeye. The movie is directed by Shawn Levy.
”I’m appearing in the movie ‘FREE GUY’ alongside Ryan Reynolds, Jacksepticeye, and Ninja,” Lannan tweeted in 2019. The YouTuber added: ”I was doing construction 5 years ago.”
