London, UK – 25 August 2023 – Victoria Olsi, the renowned stand-up comedian and public speaker, has made history by becoming the first Argentine comic to perform in the metaverse. In a trailblazing partnership with Sky High Capital, Olsina’s virtual act wowed audiences and set a fresh benchmark for digital comedy.

The metaverse, an ever-evolving digital space that utilises virtual reality technology for social interaction, was Olsina’s chosen platform. This decision underscores her forward-thinking attitude and eagerness to harness emerging technologies to broaden her audience.

Sky High Capital, a leading entity in the metaverse, identified Olsina’s extraordinary comedic gifts and selected her to enliven their virtual realm. Performing in Decentraland, a well-known metaverse venue, Olsina enthralled her audience with her distinctive comedic flair and amusing stories. Her pre-recorded act, customised specifically for Sky High Capital, included an introduction related to the company and jokes that touched on the metaverse and its community.

“I’m honoured to be a trailblazer in bringing comedy to the metaverse,” Victoria Olsi commented. “The level of support and laughter from the virtual crowd was truly astonishing. It’s exhilarating to consider the limitless potential of merging comedy with state-of-the-art technology to engage with new fans.”

To gain entry to the virtual event, attendees had to purchase specific wearables, such as T-shirts or glasses. Olsina chose to wear the iconic Argentine National football T-shirt, featuring Maradona’s number 10, as a nod to her country’s footballing heritage.

The landmark performance also led to the issuance of NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens), offering fans the chance to own a digital memento of this historic occasion. These limited-edition tokens presented a unique opportunity for attendees to celebrate the event and support Olsina’s creative pursuits.

“The audience’s reaction was overwhelming, and we’re thrilled to have enabled this groundbreaking comedic experience in the metaverse,” said a spokesperson for Sky High Capital. “Victoria Olsi has expanded the horizons of digital entertainment, and we’re eager for future collaborations.”
