Buddy Rivers Live at the Leroy (the automatic comedian) by Dave Miller – London, 26 April 2008, 3-6pm

“Buddy Rivers Live at the Leroy (the automatic comedian)” by Dave Miller
Venue: 55 Leroy St, Bermondsey, London SE1
Date: 26 April 3-6pm

The Leroy Club was a legendary venue in the 1950’s comedy circuit, where many famous comedians started out. One of these was Buddy Rivers, who’s returned to do this benefit performance to help save the venue. He hasn’t done standup for years and fears he’s lost his edge, so now uses computer programs and Internet searches to generate his jokes. How will the audience react? Join in the show from 3-6pm at the Leroy or online at:


‘Buddy Rivers Live’ is a live performance experiment in networked and collaborative narratives. Dave Miller (http://davemiller.org) tells stories through images and text-based works, mixing topical social and
political real-life issues, news and events, with his own experiences, views and observations. His practice spans several art forms, from net art exploring collaboration, networks and generative forms, to live mapping events and printed booklets and prints.
