STAND-UP PHILOSOPHY is a live philosophy show a bit like stand-up comedy, only instead of just being funny, it’s also philosophical.
A mixture of academic philosophers and brilliant comedians (with a different line-up and theme for every show) try to answer the big questions of philosophy, and discuss them with a live audience.
Basically it’s like a cross between a stand-up comedy night and a public lecture, only more fun.
And there’s a bar.
Come even if you’re just curious!
Stand-up Philosophy: Rules
1. Each philosopher on the bill is given 8-12 minutes to make an argument which answers some philosophical problem
2. The philosopher then takes SHORT questions/objections from the audience
3. Excessive use of jargon and/or unnecessary name-dropping of philosophers is banned
4. Tell people why they’re wrong, but don’t be an arse about it
