We are currently facing a global climate emergency. You’ve probably noticed. But why does the end of the world need to be so depressing? Join us for a hilarious look at the climate change crisis with Dr Matt Winning, which aims to both lighten the mood and enlighten us a little bit about climate change. After the stand up will be a short interview with Matt so we can find out what motivates him, how he came to merge an academic career on to the comedy circuit, and his thoughts on what we can do about climate change.
Dr Matt Winning is a London-based Scottish comedian and environmental economist who performs live climate change comedy, hosts the podcast ‘Operation Earth’ and has a TEDx talk about the importance of using humour to discuss climate change. He is a co-host of the BBC Radio 4 show Mark Watson and Matt Winning: Seriously, Though, The Planet and author of the book HOT MESS.
