James Veitch: Game Face
  • Brighton Fringe

Responsible for the most popular TED Talk of 2016, James Veitch brings his hilarious new show 'Game Face', with more geeky comedy about life, love and enabling Bluetooth. A glorious show of esoteric, anarchic and unashamedly Powerpoint-fuelled comedy from the Independents One to watch. Expect Donkey Kong, ducks and online dating as James fearlessly (and somewhat inadvisedly) battles the mundane and pointless bureaucracies of the modern world. At the end of 2015, James filmed a TED Talk which went on to become the fastest ever to reach over two million views in the history of TED. Currently at 11m views and climbing, the talk sees James narrate a hilarious, weeks-long exchange with an email spammer who offered to cut him in on a hot deal. Following the success of the first, James has also recently recorded a second web series with Mashable, documenting his scam-revenge exploits. A posh boy with few real world friends (Kate Copstick, The Scotsman),screamingly funny (Fringe Guru).

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.
