Biography

Christopher "Panky" Pankhurst is an independent caster who was previously with the team Curse Gaming EU. His career began with casting StarCraft 2 matches, but he moved to League of Legends after he becoming bored with StarCraft 2. After spectator mode was released, Panky started casting games with the CSL and later was able to cast CLG.EU's scrimmage matches. When WetDreaM of Absolute Legends announced they were looking to recruit casters, Panky submitted some of his recordings and was accepted.

Since joining both organisations, the list of events he has worked on is growing fast. With offline events such as the HeartoWin Cup already on his resume after only 1 month of casting League of Legends, chances are that Panky will eventually cast larger offline events. Campus Gaming Party: Berlin is the next event on the list where he worked alongside Trevor 'qu1ksh0t' Henry. This event took place inside an abandoned aircraft hanger, which in its own right provided some challenges for the pair. The success of this event, working with such a famous caster as qu1ksh0t, leads Panky's fans to a cautious optimism for his future.

Trivia
