TID Talks - Ideas Not Worth Spreading
TidTalks is a unique-ish* show, in which 6 of Aotearoa’s finest comedians and improvisers will do will do what comedians do best - appear confident and pretend they know exactly what they’re talking about. The twist? They won’t know what their subject of “expertise” is, until they walk onto the stage! Luckily though, they will have help in the form of slides (they won’t have seen them either, but anyway), to guide themselves and the audience on a journey of ideas which are definitely not worth sharing.
Topics have included:
- How actively melting Antarctic ice could be the answer to the climate crisis
- How to detect a narcissist using a metal detector
- What strip clubs can teach us about effective pedagogy
Competing for the title of best speaker of the word of bollocks on 3 Nov, we have:
- Georgie Sivier
- Henry Hickman
- Mark Darbyshire
- Eve Wingerath
- Anto Martin
The show will be MC’d by parenting expert and legendary local comedian, Jo Ghastly (AKA the Cool Mum)
Thought provoking, definitely not ridiculous TidTalk topics and slides will be written and created by the deep thinkers and academically gifted people Eve happens to know, who will do such things for a bag of chips. Proceeds from ticket sales for this show will go to local charity, Aviva. Who do cool stuff.
*TidTalks is absolutely NOT a rip off of a successful show format from Australia because we’ve changed it slightly.
