Fancy pissing your pants on Monday?

I always like to say yes to things that scare the living crap out of me. And this latest venture is no exception to that rule.

This coming Monday I’m going to be hosting a digital comedy night as part of Internet Week Europe. And you can watch it live, wherever you are in the world.

The main draw of the night is the filming of a pilot for a TV show, starring Neil Mullarkey, Niall Ashdown and Andy Smart.

The show is an improv comedy extravaganza where the action on stage is dictated by the viewers on the web. And the lucky 140 people who manage to get tickets to the event.

I’ve been arranging it alongside the wonderful Marc Lewis, Dean of the School of Communication Arts. And we’ve hed the incredibly generous support of Nice Agency who are programming the system, Edelman who are providing the venue, Kinura who are doing the streaming and Ravensbourne who are doing the filming.

We’re also supported by Twitter – which is the platform we’re using to get the audience suggestions.

If you fancy getting tickets, you can find them here –¬†http://140chars.eventbrite.co.uk/

And, if you can’t be there, you can join us live on the web at –¬†http://140characters.tv/

And I also need you to get involved before we start. It would be great if you could send me:

- an audio file of you yelling, coughing, farting, sneezing, growling – or any other fun noises we can include in our buzzer sounds.

- a link to a YouTube video that we can create a voiceover to

- photos we can use to feed the onstage mayhem.

This is your chance to be part of TV history!

I hope you’ll join us.
