Charity Chuckle has been putting on quality comedy nights for the last four years and has already raised an impressive £10,000 for local charities and community groups. The packed ‘Digital’ show at the Komedia last week was probably their biggest technical challenge yet.
Specially curated for the Brighton Digital Festival, every comic would have a different laptop set-up. And there was an animated section.
First act, Nathan Penlington, told of his journey into “the very analogue” Choose Your Own Adventure books; gripped, no-one wanted it to end.
Joseph Morpurgo broke the fourth wall with his Twitter improvements and an apple, while Phil Lucas delivered dancing and pop star memes with aplomb.
Laurie Rowan’s Fuzzy Banter had everyone chuckling and headliner, Edinburgh-prize-nominee David Trent, shocked and delighted with multimedia jams. It was a very funny and original night. With glowsticks!
