All About Philosophy in 100 Jokes

What happens when a philosopher and a comedian come into a bar? In this case, a long night of drinking alone.

Oleg Denisov, a critically acclaimed international comedian, screenwriter, and philosopher by training, sets out to answer mankind’s biggest questions with the most unlikely medium: jokes. Jokes that will take you on a rollercoaster ride from all the ancient Greek dudes with questionable morals, to the great issues of modern day – like should we hate Starbucks because of ethics, or just because their coffee is sh*t. Will you laugh a lot? Yes. Will the show change you forever? Definitely: you’ll be at least 60 minutes older after it (if none the wiser). Will there be exactly 100 jokes? Come on, it’s philosophy not maths.

★★★★ «Fascinating comedian… cerebral and provocative» (Edinburgh Reporter)

“Impressive” (The List)
