On the 10 March,The Phoenix Remix is returning to Hoopla Impro, The Miller, London Bridge and over the next week we sit down with some of the acts that are performing at the show to find out more about them and what they have in store for the audience. Today we talk to David about Retrofuture.
Hello tell us about yourself and three unknown facts!
Hi! As well as doing stand-up, I’m a video game programmer, tabletop RPG designer, and improviser.
1) I haven’t got around to writing myself a good programmer / non-binary joke yet.
2) I started looking at historical cookery for a D&D game and became a bit obsessed.
3) My favourite episodes of nature documentaries are the deep sea ones.
You are performing at the Phoenix Remix Live how are you feeling about it?
I’m a little nervous, but that’s the excitement making itself known.
What do you have in store for the audience as part of your set?
I’ve been trying to cast my mind’s eye into the future, and I’ve been getting a bit lost in the best way!
Why did you decide to do the show?
The future’s a great theme for a night, and the last one looked like a load of fun. How could I not?
What are some of your favourite parts of the Phoenix Remix website and why?
The Improv Corner and Tidbits are nice, short reads to get me pondering about particular parts of improv.
This months show is all about the future, technology and space. What would be your dream gadget that you are still waiting to be invented?
The worst thing about pressing snooze on the alarm clock is that then you end up being late. I want one that makes the night ten minutes longer instead!
The show is also raising money for the Douglas Bader Foundation – why should people donate?
When someone’s had a massive change in their life being able to talk to someone who’s been through the same thing can be incredibly important, and that’s just one of the types of support they provide.
If people want to find out more about you where can they find you on social media?
I tweet, mostly about Tabletop RPGs, at @UncannyDice.
Finally in three Words why people should come to phoenix remix Live
Fabulous, futuristic, fun!
