Billy vs the Internet is a 30-minute one-man comedy play written by Sam Hargreaves. It was first performed at The Butterfly Club in Melbourne, Australia on 23 September, 2019 as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival, with Hargreaves himself playing the role of Billy Sutherland.[1] After running for a week there, the play returned for one night only at Melbourne's Speakeasy HQ in December of that year.[2]

The play is based on material Hargreaves developed while working on a sketch comedy show with Eurydice Dixon at Deakin University.[3][4]

The play depicts Billy, an aspiring YouTube celebrity, in his study one afternoon. Throughout the play he is seen making a series of videos for YouTube using his parents’ old analogue video camera while also responding to less than favourable feedback in the comments sections on his videos. Much of the play's humour comes from Billy's failure to understand modern technology as well as social commentary on internet culture.[5]
