Hosted by Kim Noble (Noble and Silver), this event is the culmination of a multi-locational project combining event, residency, commissioning, exhibition and screenings curated by Toby Huddlestone. The evening will incorporate live hosting and performance by Kim Noble, a live performance by Bedwyr Williams, screenings by Olaf Breuning and Frank Koolen, a youtube battle between the curator and the Arnolfini and live music to finish in the form of Vexkiddy. A resultant podcast will be made available through the internet afterwards. I AM COMEDY launched as a project in Holland in late 2008 investigating artists who use humour through their practice to explore the human condition and their own identity as a way of relating to the world. Many of the previously selected artists involve themselves explicitly as either narrator or actor through their work, often using video and live performance as a medium to explore duration and timing; an essential facet in constructing comedy. This seemingly optimistic means of surviving by simply laughing at life is somewhat more tragic deep down as each work delves into a different arena of the artist's inherent quotidian fabric. All the artist's selected have one thing in common — they want to make us laugh at their interventions and attempts to understand the everyday.
