Hastings Comedy Festival 2023 presents:
Ever wonder if what you are looking at is real? New deepfake technology has sewn doubt as to the credibility of every inch of the audio-visual spectrum. And Charlie is partly to blame.Impressionist and human deepfake Charlie Hopkinson brings his first show to the Hastings Fringe Comedy Festival, tackling the light and dark side of deepfakes, climate change denial, revenge porn and the ethics of bringing celebrities back from the dead.An award-winning impressionist stand up, Charlie was the narrator of channel 4 and Netflix show ‘lookalikes’, and his videos have achieved over 100 million views over YouTube and Facebook.If you like Peaky Blinders, Breaking Bad, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Harry Potter, every film ever made or Morgan Freeman, you’ll love it. If you haven’t, come see if he’s managed to make his jokes accessible with zero context.
Venue was rubbish, the music was playing so loud upstairs you could not hear the gig very well! They either need to keep the volume down or don’t bother with it as a venue! Charlie was very good, and very interesting watching his work in progress. Such a shame I was the only audience member! And that is not a reflection in Charlie, probably just the venue!
