YOU AWAKE TO FIND YOURSELF IN…THE DARK ROOM!

“The Dark Room” is the world’s only live-action comedy videogame. Interactive and insane, this is improv/standup comedy + retro gaming fused into a deranged rock n’ roll game show.

VIRAL SMASH
Originally an interactive YouTube series, The Dark Room went viral in 2012, with 4,000,000 hits. It appeared on NPR, in Variety magazine, L’oiel du Links (Canal+) and was nominated for Jayisgames.com’s Best of Casual Games 2012.

THE LIVE SHOW
In August 2012, The Dark Room debuted at the Edinburgh Fringe, the world’s largest arts festival. Combining a screen, $5 of electronics, an innovative multimedia rig and John Robertson’s manic flair for improvisation and abuse, it was THE cult hit of the Fringe, creating an exhilarating, incredible world of fun, fear, nostalgia and terrible prizes.

This is a live comedy the whole audience doesn’t just watch… it plays!

Since 2012, the show has grown into a touring production that’s been staged in basements, 3,000 seat theatres, corporate events, gaming and sci-fi expos, Fringe and Comedy festivals and toured the UK, Europe, Australia and South-East Asia. In 2014, it was streamed on Twitch for a one-off special, garnering 250,000 players over a four-hour marathon show. No two shows are the same. No other show is the same. This is THE DARK ROOM!

WHAT THE CRITICS SAID

“A real blast from the past with one crooked eye on the future, this is a truly unique show you’ll be gutted to miss out on.”
(Manchester Wire)

“What a marvelous, maddening concept this is from the twisted mind of John Robertson… if Kafka were to write a comedy show, this would be it.”
(Chortle)
