On May 4th I will be filming my latest show Oh Frig, I’m 50! at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London for DVD and download. They are charging us a fair whack for the privilege and we’d also like to up the production values a little bit. Due to the shifting nature of the formats in which filmed comedy is enjoyed, producing DVDs and downloads is now something we do more for love than profit.
So we thought it might be a good idea to try gauge interest and raise the funds up front this time, plus give you the chance to get your hands on a limited edition, exclusive luxury 4 disc DVD set that is strictly limited to a run of 1000 copies. This may well be the only physical release this show gets. If we do make in into a DVD, it will be a regular 2 disc set, not this exclusive 4 disc one.
There’s a chance for backstage access and to appear in the DVD.
EXTRA REWARD – One person who buys the luxury DVD , chosen at random, will receive the signed and numbered First Edition of Emergency Questions book that includes the question “Have you ever irked a postman?”
Risks and challenges
We have had the honour of making DVDs with Richard Herring for over ten years. We have a pretty good idea of how to record the show, and can't see any significant challenges ahead.
If you like the idea of supporting Kickstarter campaigns that are very slightly risky, then I can reveal that we have never filmed in the Queen Elizabeth Hall before. We've met some people that work there though, and they are very nice.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
