The We Are Funny Project is expanding the world of live spoken word events that we offer, adding to the free comedy shows and paid workshops with the We Are Fascinating Project.

We Are Fascinating Project Talks aim to bring entertaining experts and informed individuals to speak on specialised subjects and then the speaker takes a Q&A with audience at the end. It's a little like an interactive book where you get the information that you seek, yet also get to ask the author questions directly.

In an era of "fake news" and "alternative facts" it makes sense, and for a fun night out, to get information on cutting edge topics, alternative culture and fearless figures, straight from the horses' mouth, as it were.

The first season of Talks kicks off at The Albany pub, London W1, on September 28th. The venue is a cracker and is about 10 steps from Great Portland Street tube station.
