    TID Talks - Ideas Not Worth Spreading

    This event has passed Get tickets

    Event description

    TidTalks is a unique-ish* show, in which 6 of Aotearoa’s finest comedians and improvisers 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 07 June, we have:

    • Eve Wingerath

    • Jeff Clark

    • Molly Wilkin

    • Matt Lilley

    • Audrey Porne

    • Jo Prendergast

    The show will be MC’d by comedian, improviser and academic extraordinaire, Dan Bain.

    Thought provoking TidTalk topics and slides will be written and created by the deep thinker and academically gifted Emma Quinn
