Dead Talks


The speaking event of 2018. The leading non-experts in Vancouver Comedy will come together for one night of uninspiring, totally pointless and downright offensive talks.

You don't want to miss whatever this is. Keynote Speaker Simon King. 

A passionate question creator and theory tester he pushes the boundaries of what we can ask and why we ask it. Then, in a way only a man who is educate by life and not the restrictions of conventional academia can, he takes those great answers and orates them in a finitely condensed way that even the most average of you people can understand. You’re welcome.
