Joe Hart: Internaut (Total Comedy)

Joe Hart Ed2016

Prepare for a journey through cyberspace, as Hart burrows down those internet tubes to find the funny side of growing up in the digital age. Perhaps resonating most with the 18-30 bracket, he reminisces about MSN Messenger, ridiculous first email addresses (find out yours if you didn’t have one) and discovers the social media-fuelled pitfalls of sharing a name with the England goalkeeper. He doesn’t stop there though: he’s developed Fringe-themed video games that amusingly capture life at the festival. A ‘Street Fighter’ parody featuring comedian versus reviewer made me sink into my seat a little, but fortunately I don’t need to be a real life baddie and crush his dreams. Hart is warm, quirky and makes geeking-out cool.
