The comic genius who responds to scam emails…
James Veitch has done the unthinkable: answered scam emails and turned the resulting correspondence into one of the funniest shows around. We all know the scams which turn up in our in boxes with their investment opportunities, unclaimed insurance bonds, friends marooned abroad…What we didn’t know is what would happen if you actually replied to one. Now we do. Through a blend of traditional stand-up, interactive projections and music, James takes us on a journey through the schemes, investigates the nature of scamming, examines its role in our connected world, and explores his own psyche as he tries to understand why pushing these cyber con artists to their limits is so satisfying.
Quirky and fast-paced, this is theatre for the modern world, a show for anyone with a dream…and an email account.
