YouTube Friday: Tough Gig

I found this little gem last week. It's a rather old TV program where Dara O'Briain immerses himself into a group, and then tries to do stand up comedy focused on their group. In this episode, he chose LARPers.

He does an amazing job of being honest about his feelings, including when he feels uncomfortable. And he enjoys it and seems to finally embrace it at the end. As I've mentioned many times before, I love stuff like this.

  1. This is great, Bill. I love the way it captures all the awkwardness, humor, poignancy, camaraderie of someone's first introduction to LARP. I think it's really interesting the way that Dara figures out what humor does and doesn't carry over. It reminds me of a lot of the conversations we've had here about immersion and how meta-humor can detract.

    I love the mention of Rule #7, too :D
