ED2012 Comedy Review: 2 Facebooked 3 (Jools Constant / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Friday 10 August 2012

Ever wondered if live online interaction could form the basis of a comedy show? Comedian Jools Constant did, and the result is this experimental multimedia show, involving audience participation with a twist. Spectators are asked to get their phones out, add Constant on Facebook and then post photos, comments and heckles on his profile. These are projected live onto an on-stage screen and provide the basis for jokes and banter with the audience. The concept is intriguing and could potentially work extremely well, with a unique atmosphere being generated each day. However, success depends on the compliance of a witty audience: don’t waste everyone’s time by coming up with rude or unfunny suggestions!

Cabaret Voltaire, 4-25 Aug, 6.20pm.
