Last week, we were lucky enough to score an exclusive interview with Darren Criss’ (Blaine) pal and StarKid fan favorite Joey Richter. A number of you commented how much you love Joey — and we couldn’t agree more!

In just the past few years, this goofy guy in the blue headband has skyrocketed to fan fame with a number of memorable YouTube roles. Which of them is your favorite?

Ron - A Very Potter Musical (2009) and A Very Potter Sequel (2010)
Every boy wizard needs a best friend, and our favorite lightning scar-sporting superhero (played by Darren Criss) really hit the jackpot with his Red Vines-munching, orange-haired pal. A better besties truly is hard to FIND. Seriously, not everyone would be willing to smash a perfectly good Zefron poster for you. Even if it is evil...

Joey - Me and My Dick (2009)
We never thought we’d use words like “innocent” and “charming” to describe a play about a boy and his special little friend — but somehow, it just works. Joey and Dick’s (Joe Walker) epic bromance in the show is hilarious, awesome, and at times, even heartwarming.

Alex - Camp Chapel (2010)
We know it’s not a StarKid show, but this non-musical tale about a boy exiled to church camp as punishment for a night of hard partying definitely deserves a nod, as well. Our two main takeaways from the story: 1) Joey in a gray beanie is almost as adorable as Joey in a blue headband. 2) Seduction by way of Bible verses — apparently it works?

Bug - Starship (2011)
We’re just going to come out and say it: Never has a guy looked so awesome with a giant orange bug puppet strapped around his waist. He sang (like, really well). He danced. He captured the hearts of arthropods and ditsy schientists alike. What’s not to love?
