Melbourne Fringe Comedy Debate: The Geek shall inherit the Earth
21 September, 2015
Engineers without Borders (Uni of Adelaide)
Are geeks the chosen ones? Can you program your way to Salvation? Does the Lord look kindly on those with an in-depth knowledge of Battle-Star Gallactica? Will book smarts beat street smarts in the end? Or are our Cos-playing, board-game-toting friends a fragile and doomed species?
Some of Australia's best comedians lock horn-rimmed glasses and get down and technical to settle the matter for good.
The hand picked selection of hilarious nerd debatees includes:
And your hosts, Alanta Colley and Nick Brown.
Returning from sell-out events at last year's Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festival, this debate promises to be an excellent night of intelligent, witty and not entirely sensible comedy.
All funds raised from this event will support the work of Engineers Without Borders Australia both in Australia and Internationally.
