Carr Crash: Father/Daughter Comedy

Carr Crash is a show about a world growing up with AI by a Father and Daughter who saw it first-hand. Carr Crash is one part Leslie Carr (Boomer and Professor of Web Science) to one part Ruby Carr (Gen-Z Instaqueen). It's an hour's comedy exploring the human side of the Web and Artificial Intelligence.

Les is the last of the Boomer Generation, Ruby is the first of Gen-Z. He's her Dad. They're both standup comedians and they're both trying to understand how AI is shaping them and their relationship. Les studies the Web and AI and Ruby lives on her phone. He's a PowerPoint power user, she's an Instaqueen. So they wrote this show to explore their father-daughter relationship and try to decide which factor influenced Ruby the most: nature, nurture or network.

Leslie Carr became a professor in 2013 and started standup in 2017. As a Professor of Web Science his day job is to teach students about the online world, programming and AI. In the evening he is a confessional storytelling comedian with a warm and engaging stage presence, performing standup regularly in London and at comedy venues around the South Coast.

Ruby Carr started standup in April 2017. She is an insufferably delightful, high energy, storytelling comedian and a natural MC. She came to comedy from a background in theatre performing, directing and writing, and was a Finalist for Amused Moose New Act of the Year 2019, a Semifinalist for Jason Manford New Act of the Year 2019 and One to Watch for Funny Women 2021.
