'Come sit on the Couch with Me" Is this a therapy couch or a casting couch and is there a difference? The show is a cocktail of a comical but true look at communication in the western world today, with a good dose of rapping and a big pinch of satire. Did you know 90% of our communication is body language? Yours will be scrutinised at some point in the show...You will leave shaken and stirred, and if not a better person then certainly a more self aware one!'' ...

Comedy for the Curious is a comedy panel show with a science twist. Each show comprises of three very different stand-up comedy sets all around the topic at hand.
