Meet the Host, Joe

Born in the US, lived in the UK since 1978. Votes in both countries so the governments are both his fault. Has always been an active official in sports; qualified to officiate American Football, baseball, ice hockey, association football and basketball and has even umpired cricket matches. Worked in the computer industry for 30 plus years and retired as a truck driver in 2012. Is very much involved in local amateur dramatics as an actor and director and has even attempted to write 2 plays and 2 books; both yet to be published.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!

More Information

What if I can’t make the event?

If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.

Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?

Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy your Mirthy event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.

How do I watch the live event?

Mirthy events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
