Noah Bryant Munck (born May 3, 1996)[1] is an American actor, comedian, YouTube personality and music producer. Munck is known for his role as Gibby in the Nickelodeon series iCarly, "Naked Rob" Smith in the ABC comedy series The Goldbergs, and for his appearances as Bobby Sinclair, the junior lawn-mowing entrepreneur in the TruGreen commercials. He also produces electronic music and independent comedy videos.[2][3]

Early life[edit]

Munck lives in Mission Viejo in Orange County, California, where he was born.[4] He is the oldest of five children of Kymbry (née Robinson) and Greg Munck, an executive pastor at Crossline Community Church in Laguna Hills.[5][6] One of his brothers, Ethan Munck, played Gibby's 8-year-old brother Guppy in five episodes of iCarly. In fall 2014, Munck was accepted to and began attending Biola University as a cinema and media arts major,[7] before eventually dropping out.

Career[edit]

iCarly[edit]

In 2007, Munck began a recurring role on the Nickelodeon television series iCarly, as one of Carly, Sam and Freddie's friends Gibby, for three seasons. In 2010, Munck was added to the opening credits of the fourth season of iCarly, officially making him a part of the main cast.

Gibby[edit]

Proposals were put forth in 2013 for a TV series called Gibby, a spin-off of iCarly that would star Munck. The series was to star Gibby working at a recreational center where he mentors four middle-schoolers.

In 2011, he was nominated for the "Favorite TV Sidekick" award at the Kids' Choice Awards.

NoxiK[edit]

Munck also produces electronic dance music under the name NoxiK. He released his first song, "Beginnings", on January 20, 2012. Since then he has begun to release songs he created to his YouTube account. He released a small EP called Hotline on April 23, 2013.[8] On December 21, 2013, NoxiK released a single entitled "Killjoy" on SoundCloud and YouTube. It was re-posted on SoundCloud by EDM.com and has become one of his most successful singles to date. He released his first official EP titled Road Warrior on March 24, 2014.[citation needed] As of October 2017, the project has been inactive. However, he has put songs out on another SoundCloud account, named SADWORLDBEATS, and has been frequently releasing music from that account.

Sadworld[edit]

On October 9, 2016 Munck started Sadworld, a YouTube channel dedicated to "weird, absurd" and experimental comedy sketches. The videos have a distinct editing style, described as "an amalgamation of images, glitches and sounds designed to overload viewers’ senses."[3]

Activism[edit]

Munck is an active supporter of Camp Del Corazon, a summer camp on Catalina Island, California, for children with heart disease.[9]
