Wifi Wars Comedy Show Coming to The Y Theatre In Leicester
Comedy show, Wifi Wars is set to tour and is coming to The Y Theatre in Leicester on 10th September from 7pm.
Featuring in a new BBC Radio 4 documentary about video gaming, While My Guitar Gently Bleeps, and with a TV adaptation of their original live show, Go 8-Bit, to be hosted by Dara O’Briain and air on UKTV’s entertainment channel Dave this autumn, comedian and regular videogames commentator, Steve McNeil, and his tech wizard side-kick and coding king, Rob Sedgebeer, have announced a UK tour of their exciting new live and interactive show, WiFi Wars.
WiFi Wars is a live comedy game show where the audiences play along. By logging in to the WiFi Wars network with your smartphone or tablet (making sure you have plenty of battery first!) audiences are able to compete in a range of games, quizzes and challenges to win the show, and prizes.
The technology used in WiFi Wars was originally created by the boys for the live incarnation of Go 8-Bit, and will feature in the new TV adaptation of the show too. WiFi Wars was first performed as part of the Royal Institution’s 2015 Summer Programme after Steve and Rob’s appearance on their 2014 BBC Christmas Lectures. Since then the technology has been developed to create a show full of interactive fun, button bashing, hilarious trash-talking and competitive frenzy. From a version of one of the earliest arcade games, Pong, right on up to the latest virtual reality technology, this is a show for nerds and norms alike.
Whether you’re a joystick veteran, Angry Birds addict or a complete noob, this retro gaming experience is an inclusive, highly addictive group activity, proving that anyone can be a gamer. A unique night out, full of fun, excitement and comedy, that is not to be missed – so book your tickets now and “let’s do a gaming”!
Tickets cost, £15/£13 conc/£10 under 16s. Either call the Box Office: 0116 255 7066 or via www.ytheatre.co.uk
