Hello! I’m Jon Purkis, I’m a comedy writer who has written for the BBC, Channel 4 and Cartoon Network. And I’m OBSESSED with board games.

For two years I’ve been making YouTube videos about board games as Actualol. I believe that there is a board game out there for everyone, and my goal is to make entertaining, accessible videos that show the world the fun that the rest of us are having.

I do that by dressing up in wigs and talking to myself, as 20+ comedy characters. By singing songs about board games. By skipping the rules and reviewing games by how they make you feel, by the stories they tell, by how they frustrate us, challenge us or make us laugh.

I need your help to keep Actualol going.


I’ve reached a point in my life where I need to work out what I’m doing. I put my career on hold to make these videos, but I can’t afford to anymore. If we can reach the funding goal, I can keep making videos. If not, then I will stop.

To thank you for your support, there are loads of Patron rewards, such as exclusive videos - check them out on the right-hand side of this page. And for each stretch goal we reach, I’ll be releasing extra special videos, such as another board game song.

If you’ve enjoyed Actualol over the last two years, please help give it a future.

Video - My Board Game Collection

I will show you my mammoth collection of board games. Talk through every game I own, shedding light on some of the obscure, quirky games I love that haven’t made it onto a Top 10 list.
