All you need is a camera, an internet connection and something to say.

Last year, 34% of young people voted YouTuber as their top career choice. Claire was intrigued. She decided to have a go. Part documentary, part live performance, part parody, part desperate as f*ck, Claire does everything she can to entertain her online audience while remaining 100% totally authentically real.

Adapted during lockdown and live-streamed from her bedroom, Claire delivers an intimate performance that invites you to see behind the camera.
