Niall Comas (born May 14, 1997 [age 25]), also known as Pyrocynical (or simply Pyro), is an English commentary YouTuber who has an estimated net worth of $1.39 million as of October 2022 as per Net Worth Spot. He was previously recognised as one of the early adopters of well-known commentary formats, such as coloured borders surrounding video clips shown during videos.
Niall's channel currently features a variety of commentary and analysis videos, particularly those with trend-related content. He sometimes refers to his audience as the "Bruh Army," a satirical reference to PewDiePie's fanbase, which was formerly known as the Bro Army. Most of his descriptions would even include an ASCII drawing of the Brofist, which PewDiePie used to include in his early descriptions.
Niall started his YouTube channel in 2013, but he didn't post anything until 2014, mostly MLG montage parodies that he later claimed he was embarrassed about.
On October 30, 2015, a video titled "IT'S JUST A PRANK BRO" was released on Niall's channel, a commentary-style video that marked a noticeable departure from the montage parody content. Since then, only one other montage parody video titled "SHREK HAS SWAG 2" has been released on his channel.
Niall's commentary videos began with mostly first-person shooter gameplay in the background, most notably CS:GO or Overwatch, and occasionally other games, such as Connect 4 (IRL board game version) and Garfield Kart. He would use his commissioned fanarts of his channel icon in the later days of his pre-face reveal. However, he has abandoned the format in favour of real-life footage of himself in his bedroom.
Niall was romantically involved with YouTube animator Hyojin Choi, also known as Squizzy, from 2016 to late 2018 or early 2019. Hyojin announced their split on Twitter on April 19, 2019.
Pictures of Niall's face were leaked to Twitter by DramaAlert host Keemstar from his private Facebook page prior to his face reveal. Keemstar, on the other hand, claimed that he had never leaked information from Niall's private Facebook page and that the image he tweeted had already been leaked on Twitter and Google Images. Niall also posted a video of himself brushing his teeth on Twitter, which was later removed. Niall unexpectedly uploaded a face reveal video titled "Who i'm voting for president (face reveal)" on October 12, 2016, mocking the Casey Neistat controversy surrounding the 2016 United States presidential election.

Niall makes the majority of his money through his social media presence and his YouTube channel. Before becoming one of the great drama channels in 2015, he made several MLG videos, with "MLG Teletubbies" becoming its most-viewed video and one of his five videos with over 10 million views. From 2016 to mid-2019, his main genre of videos has been comedy and gaming, though he has also posted several serious videos. His uploads became less frequent in late 2019, focusing more on media products such as TV shows, books, movies, and Tiktok.
Pyrocynical has had a lucrative YouTube career and continues to do so. As of October 2022, he has over 4,75 million subscribers and more than 1.4 billion views.
On average, over 137.88 thousand people watch the Pyrocynical YouTube channel. YouTubers can earn between $3 and $7 per thousand video views. If Pyrocynical falls within this range, Net Worth Spot estimates that Pyrocynical earns $16.55 thousand per month, for a total annual salary of $248.19 thousand.
However, this could be an overestimation of Pyrocynical's revenue. If Pyrocynical earns well, video ads could bring in more than $446.74 thousand per year. YouTubers rarely have a single source of income. Sponsorships, affiliate commissions, product sales, and speaking engagements may generate far more revenue than ads.
SocialBlade estimates his revenue from YouTube views to be between $669 - $10.7K per month and up to $8K - $128.5K per year.
Niall has a fairly famous Instagram account. He posts pictures of himself, cosplay pictures and more. In the latter half of June 2019, Niall posted several pictures of himself cosplaying female anime characters, such as Ryko Matoi from Kill la Kill and Mt. Lady from My Hero Academia.
He has over 811k followers and 159 thousand average likes on his account with 3,621 average comments. As per SocialBlade, this data puts the engagement rate on his account at 21% with 116 uploads. As per various sources, Niall can earn anywhere between $2,445 - $4,075 per sponsored post.
Niall has over 272k followers on Twitch, where most of his streams include him chatting normally with his subscribers. Currently, he has over 930,438 views on his Twitch channel. He charges around $10 dollars for each subscription. However, his total earnings from his Twitch channel is unknown.
Pyrocynical is a well-known social media personality with numerous YouTube channels. He has been able to earn a lot of capital because of his diverse field of income, allowing him to buy a lot of assets. However, exact knowledge about his house and cars is unavailable.
A. Niall was frequently chastised for being a "LeafyIsHere clone" due to the striking similarity of their content, despite their distinct personalities. Niall responded by mocking himself and imitating Leafy by employing clickbait and content that was more favourable than Leafy's. Despite the drama, Niall and Leafy remained friends and appeared on DramaAlert as a joke with a playground insult match.
A. Niall's content is mostly in-depth reviews and analyses of games, TV shows, and movies, with a few commentary videos thrown in for good measure.
A. On October 29, 2020, a Twitter user named Ivory Rasmus claimed that Pyrocynical "groomed" him when he was 15 and Pyrocynical was 19. Pyrocynical, according to Ivory, sent him a variety of inappropriate material, including drawn NSFW and fetish videos. Pyrocynical responded to the allegation in a statement posted on his subreddit on November 10, 2020. While he did not deny the conversations occurred, he did clarify that there was no grooming or exchange of sexual imagery, which Ivory also admitted, and that their interactions were limited to "fantasy roleplay".
