PLEB Comedy Think-Tank!

Thursday 11th October 2012

7:30-10 pm at UCL (in association with the Department of Greek & Latin)

PLEB Talks

... is the world's only comedy think-tank. The platform for comedians to dispense their unconventional wisdom. Unlike traditional lectures that are serious and useful, the PLEB Talks lectures are reckless, fuelled by comedy and intellectually ... worth nothing.

The night's topic of Myths & Legends will be tackled by

with support from speakers

  • Pat Cahill (New Act of the Year 2012, Chortle Best Newcomer 2012)
  • John Kearns (Pleasance Comedy Reserve 2012)
  • Ian Smith ("ebullient and witty" - LondonIsFunny.com)
  • John-Luke Roberts ("A talent to watch" - Time Out)
  • Bec Hill ("an act to watch out for" - Time Out)
  • Joe Wells (Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2012 - runner up)
  • Rick Turpin (Winner)

All presided over by PLEB's Resident Academic Host Nish Kumar ("A skilled comic" - Chortle) with Ben Target (Foster's Best Newcomer Nominee 2012).
