And you think I’m a Geek!

Watched Dara O’Briain’s Tough Gig the other night. The Irish comedian was given the task of doing a gig for a bunch of Live Action Roleplayers (LARPers) – these are guys that dress up and act out the storyline rather than simply tell it.

To me, the imagination involved in tabletop gaming is much more attractive than the acting aspect of LARP. Dara was a great sport and the clip below gives a great flawour of the programme…
