David Morgan has two obsessions in his life: TV and the Internet.
David Morgan’s greatest strength and what makes him such an enjoyable comedian to watch is his seemingly innate ability to interact and connect with his audience.
Throughout the hour, every aspect of social media is brought to the table. From inappropriate selfies to which animal accounts to follow on Instagram, Morgan discusses them all with gusto, drawing both from his own experiences and through discoveries made from his online travels.
He also talks about his concerns on how living our life digitally has affected the way we interact with people; what we choose to share with the world and the motivations behind it, and the different ways we cope with hairy situations, be it a cut from a kitchen mishap or death of a loved one. His thoughts and amusing observations easily garnered many laughs, mostly because undoubtedly we could all relate to it on some level.
In his bid to figure out how to deal with the Internet wisely, he compiles a DeBrett’s style etiquette guide. He demonstrates that the internet can have a positive and negative effect on all our lives and he shares a heartwarming story about a long time online friend, which became the heart of the show.
