A Laughing Matter? Comedy and climate change

Thursday 27 June 2019, 17:30 - 18:30
Foyer, Stage@Leeds

Join comedian Gemma Arrowsmith to examine the unlikely intersection of comedy and climate change.

It may appear to be the least funny thing imaginable, but could we talk about climate change more effectively if we injected a bit of humour? Or is comedy totally out of place in discussions about our warming world?

Gemma has recently launched a new podcast series, No Planet B, which features interviews with climate scientists and activists, as well as sketches and information about climate change. She will share stories about making this series and discuss the power of comedy to engage an audience.

Bar open from 5pm.

Booking required. Reserve your place here.

This event is co-hosted by the Priestley Centre, the Priestley Society, and Leeds University Union.
