The School of Life Melbourne Secular Sermon Series: David Woods ON HUMOUR

Listen to The School of Life Melbourne Secular Sermon Series: David Woods ON HUMOUR

You are funny. We are funny. Everyone is funny. Some celebrate the use of humour; others merely come across it. Some are completely unaware of it. But all of us can develop it if we choose.

Writer, performer and philosopher David Woods will explore the uses and meaning of humour.

Additional performance by Mark Jones and The Beautiful Lies.

A co-presentation with Melbourne Conversations.


David Woods is a writer and performer – and one half of the performance outfit Ridiculusmus. He has a D Phil on the subject of comedy from the University of Kent.
