David Firth Is Taking Salad Fingers On A Tour Across The UK

Ah, Salad Fingers - the viral cartoon that left an entire generation of internet users feeling confused and uncomfortable.

Up until this point, David Firth's horrifying creation had remained within the realms of YouTube, social media and countless meme pages.

However, this is all set to change as the horrifying 00s web series is making its way to the big screen with a series of back-to-back screenings across the UK.

To mark its 15th anniversary, this summer, you can relive Salad Fingers' most magical moments - from his love of rusty spoons to the return of his BFF Hubert Cumberdale.

Not only will fans be treated to a screening of all 11 episodes, but Firth will be on hand for a live Q&A afterwards, where he'll discuss the titular character's inception before answering all of your burning questions.

Tickets are on sale now for shows including The Stand Comedy Club in Edinburgh (July 5), The Leadmill in Sheffield (July 15), The Comedy Store in Manchester (July 20), The Glee Club in Nottingham (August 5) and The Glee Club in Birmingham (August 17).

Tickets are just £13.50 a pop - an absolute steal considering the nostalgic value of the event.

The first episode of Salad Fingers dropped all the way back in 2004 (feel old yet?), garnering millions of online views in the process.

Capturing the attention of young adults across the country, the series is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, following the misadventures of a mentally troubled green humanoid and his 'pals'.

Firth has since gone on to put his talents to other projects, from web series such as Spoilsbury Toast Boy and Burnt Face Man to flash animations like Musical Predictions 2009 and Jerry Jackson.

The tour arrives one year after the most recent episode dropped online. Despite a slicker production, 'Glass Brother' stayed true to form, offering up pure nightmare fuel as our favourite little oddball decides it's time for Hubert Cumberdale to become a real boy. *shivers*

While the series has maintained a high level of popularity throughout the years, the latest episodes were only made possible thanks to support from the fans via membership platform Patreon.

Upon the episode's release, Firth's Patreon page stated: "This stuff is all really hard work. YouTube ads are a small help, but unless you are putting multiple vids a week, they pay very little.

"An average project takes WEEKS to MONTHS of solid work, yet roughly makes around $1 per 1000 views in ad revenue.

"That isn't much, especially as YouTube doesn't tend to feature much animation since the 'viewer engagement' doesn't typically reach their standards.

"To make a living from YouTube revenue I would have to really start cutting corners and making broader stuff to get more views. That is not my style."

So if you want to show your support to Firth, book yourself a ticket to one of his shows and experience Salad Fingers' silver screen debut.
