This weekend UKTV channel Dave gets behind Twitter comedy.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to support an innovative new show on social media. We are blown away by the line-up and can’t wait to see our audience tweet along to what promises to be an hilarious look at 2017 – and let’s face it, it’s a year that’s given everyone lots of material!” – Luke Hales, Channel Director Dave
In a global first, Twitter is to stream its first comedy show. Sponsored by UKTV’s entertainment channel Dave, #LaughAt2017 will stream on @livecomedy on Sunday 17 December at 10.30pm.
It is the first time that Twitter has branched out into a comedy show with comics taking a look back at the last twelve months in the end of year stand-up show.
#LaughAt2017 will feature sets from 2017 Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominee Ahir Shah, acclaimed musical comedy duo Flo & Joan, the world’s most famous prankster Lee Nelson and critically-acclaimed comedian Lou Sanders. The show is hosted by double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Carl Donnelly.
“Twitter and comedy go hand in hand so it’s brilliant to be working with UKTV to bring such a great show direct and exclusive to all our users.” – Julia White, Twitter Entertainment Partnerships
