Comedian wins $2.3K in his quest for a £5K sofa

This week, the joke was on the 466 other people who played the Hot $33.

Popular UK comic Rhys James, known as RhysJamesy on Twitch and PokerStars, is currently on a quest to turn £100 into £5,000 so he can purchase his dream sofa.

He’d normally do that by performing stand-up comedy around the world and on TV.

But with things as they are, he’s decided to grind it up on PokerStars instead.

That’s clearly a great decision as on Tuesday 23 February, James took down the Hot $33 for $2,345.

Catch Rhys James on Twitch as he continues his sofa quest.

Congrats to Cash4King and Cash4Queen!
