Mobile Comedy
British users of Nokia 3650/7650 and P800 mobile phones now have access to Mobile Comedy, a service created by the company behind "The Graham Norton Show" and "Johnny Vaughan Tonight.

Users simply text go comedy to 89080 and are automatically directed by Bango.net to the Zoo42 WAP site.

A weekly subscription to the new service costs 1.50 and includes video, SMS and images with jokes and short comedy films. Users need the RealOne Player for these devices to be able to watch the movies. Access to the service is through a WAP site available for users on Vodafone, O2, T-Mobile and Orange networks.

Much of the comedy content comes from acts that headline Zoo42's flagship Comedy Club 'Big Night Out @ The Empire' located in London's Leicester Square. The emphasis is on topical content with the material being written, filmed and made available soon after the story breaks.

Phone users will also be able to view a comedy how-to series such as "How to go on a date" and a once weekly Picture Soap that's destined to build a cult following.

"Mobile gives us a way of delivering highly topical content to the man in the street," said Jeremy O'Donnell, co-founder of Zoo42 Productions. "Using Bango's unique access and charging technology, it's easy for us to offer our own brand of comedy to people no matter what UK network they are on and collect money from them quickly and easily."
