15th December 2017
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.
Julia White, Twitter Entertainment Partnerships, said:
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.
Luke Hales, Channel Director, Dave added:
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!
