Dave TV – One Night Stand

Dave, one of TV’s premier comedy channels, sponsor live stand-up comedy events up and down the country entitled One Night Stands.

As part of a broad national TV campaign to promote the comedy nights and to engage with their viewers, we developed a Facebook app for Dave’s Official Page for fans to vote for their favourite venue and location from almost 120 candidates in 6 regions. Utilising a required Like mechanism (whereby fans must Like the Facebook page to take part), we created a straightforward voting mechanism with all venues and events slotted into categories, and a belt-and-braces security method to try and ensure people can only vote once.

The app was built as a hybrid of Flash, jQuery and PHP, with an elegantly deprecating header for non-Flash platforms and simple but effective jQuery page loads.
