SHOW INFORMATION

James Veitch: Dot Con

James VeitchSuspicious emails: un-claimed insurance bonds, diamond-encrusted safety deposit boxes, close friends marooned in a foreign country. They pop-up in our inbox and standard procedure is to delete on sight. But what happens when you reply?

James Veitch has spent the past year responding to as many scam emails as he can. Packed full of Nigerian princes, can’t miss investment opportunities and eligible Russian brides, the correspondence leads to surprising, bizarre and usually hilarious results.

Through a blend of traditional standup, interactive projections and music, he takes the audience 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 he finds pushing these cyber con artists to their limits so very satisfying.

Quirky, fast-paced and relatable, It’s comedy for the modern world, a show for anyone with a dream…and an email account.
