David Morgan - Social Tool

David Morgan has two obsessions in his life: TV and the Internet. Social Tool is a show primarily about the latter, specifically social networking and how we use it to communicate with others and deal with things that life throws at us.

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.

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. He is the perfect comic for a stand up novice, because he is just so extremely likeable, not at all intimidating and most importantly, he has great comedic sense.


As Morgan’s material relies heavily on being an active social media user, Social Tool would likely predominantly attract and play better to a younger, tech savvy crowd. However even if you don’t get what the fuss is with Facebook or Twitter, go anyway - if it doesn’t convert you at the very least you’ll get some hilarious insight into the people that do.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
