The Not So Allied Forces of Social TV Comedy
    The US and UK have joined forces enough over the years, so with tweet-powered comedy, we Brits are going it alone. Sorry Team CoCo and Fallon. This talk’s all about what’s happening in the Mother Country when Twitter and Facebook fuel the funny on the telly. Why listen to us? From Monty Python to The Office, the BBC produces more comedy than any broadcaster in the world. But the web changed everything. What happens when Auntie Beeb focuses on developing new comedy talent from the web up? Or when it teams with social TV consultants like Urgent Genius to make immersive second-screen experiences? The keys to the next generation of Britcom are in the hands of TV viewers tapping on iPads. But what kind of TV comedy will that create? Hecklers, come one, come all. Sit in the front row and let us pick on you as we tell you about some experiments we've been doing with live comedy and social media including a live Twitter-powered experiment just for SXSW.
