News: WiFi Wars To Tour UK

Comedian and regular videogames commentator Steve McNeil and his tech wizard side-kick Rob Sedgebeer have announced a UK tour of their new live and interactive show, WiFi Wars.

This follows the news that McNeil's live gaming show with Sam Pamphilon, Go 8-Bit,  is being made into a series for Dave hosted by Dara O’Briain and will air in the autumn.

WiFi Wars is a live comedy game show where the audiences play along. By logging in to the WiFi Wars network with your smartphone or tablet (making sure you have plenty of battery first!) audiences are able to compete in a range of games, quizzes and challenges to win the show, and prizes.

The WiFi Wars tour will currently start at the Udderbelly in London on July 1 before touring the UK. 

The technology used in WiFi Wars was originally created for the live incarnation of Go 8-Bit, and will feature in the new TV adaptation of the show too. WiFi Wars was first performed as part of the Royal Institution’s 2015 Summer Programme after Steve and Rob’s appearance on their 2014 BBC Christmas Lectures.  

Creators and hosts of WiFi Wars, Rob Sedgebeer and Steve McNeil, said:"We’ve had so much fun developing our tech at our Royal Institution residency in London, and for the TV show recordings of Go 8 Bit, we can’t wait to take our toys to a wider audience. Frankly, we can’t believe driving round the country to play computer games is our job and we’re enjoying every minute of it!" 

Steve McNeil presented Challenge TV’s Videogame Nation, Ginx TV’s Console Yourself and Minecraft: Digging Deeper. He will also be starring in Dave’s Go 8-Bit as a team captain this autumn.
