|“||I'm the king of pranks!||„|
|~ — Spencer in iGet Pranky|
Spencer Shay (born 11 November 1984) is the older brother of Carly Shay and is also an scuplting artist.
Spencer is shown to have an eccentric and weird demeanor, but despite that, he is not fooled easily, as seen in iLook Alike and iDate a Bad Boy. He is sometimes called abnormal. According to his old girl friend Veronica, he's a "creative, fun spirit." He is frequently seen building strange sculptures in the show and most of his works are seen in the apartment.
Spencer also frequently finds himself in sticky situations that serve as a subplot for the episode. Some of these subplots include his nemesis, the notorious Chuck Chambers.
Although he may have quit law school after just 3 days, he still possesses some legal knowledge as shown in iPromote Techfoots and iOwe You. He even kept a book he got from Law School. He never told his dad that he dropped out.
A reoccurring gag throughout the series is that many objects that Spencer touches bursts into flames. Many of these objects are non flammable, which adds to the humor of it. In iGot A Hot Room, Spencer's gummy bear lamp that he got Carly for her birthday caused a huge fire that destroyed Carly's room (Obviously this was unintentional and Spencer didn't mean for this to happen.)
