The ventriloquist's show, which toured across 2021 and 2022, is described as follows: "British Comedy Award winner Nina Conti is pioneering a new dating show. She'll be like Cilla Black with masks. Derailed. Not so much a blind date as a revoiced one. There is no promise that true love will be found but a firm guarantee that big laughs will be had in the reign of this quick-thinking queen of ventriloquism."
Conti says: "I'm excited to unveil a special of the Dating Show on YouTube, recorded live at the Edinburgh Festival last year. The show was different every night, thanks to the audience. Thank you for adding to the fun and the chaos; it was thrilling for me that no two shows were the same. It was like a blind date on acid. We botched every love-match, but there was a lot of laughter in heartfelt interactions under extreme cartoon circumstances."
