SPEAK: Laughter


Welcome to the next pop-up event from SPEAK, the public speaking platform for people with ideas and stories. The theme for this pop-up is “Laughter” where we will be exploring the ideas and stories of 10 unique and diverse individuals in relation to our theme. Brought to you by producers George Andriopoulos, Fred P. Banny and Jason Martin.

“A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.”

Steve Martin

SPEAK: Laughter will be a different show for us as we look to implement a theme in terms of both content and tone. Not only will these talks be about laughter, from a meta viewpoint, but also humorous in tone. Laughter is said to be the best medicine but can we look at laughter from a different lens than just “ha ha funny?” These 10 talks will feature creative takes on humor while delivering the one thing that we came here for…laughter.


There has been a venue change! Tickets for this event are now free and there are only a limited number of tickets available. The event will now be held at The Studios at Launchpad Five One Six. Here’s the info:
