Presenting a new series of talks, all about comedy, hosted by ABC's James Valentine. 

2pm, The Art of the Joke
With Becky Lucas and Daniel Connell

The comedian makes joke-telling seem effortless. It’s not. ABC’s James Valentine chats to two of Australia's most successful young comedians as they reveal the art, the craft and the sheer hard work that goes into creating a great joke.

If you want to know how to get the room laughing, this is a session not to miss.

3.30pm, Fake News, Fake Jokes
With Michael Hing and Greta Lee Jackson

It used to be simple. Politicians would make the news, reporters would report the news and comedians would make the jokes. But in this time of Trump it’s way more complicated than that. What are the news comedians doing? Are they court jesters telling jokes to power, or are they part of the problem?

Join ABC's James Valentine and comedians Michael Hing (The Feed) and Greta Lee Jackson (SkitBox, Tonightly) as they run this all down.

Supported by City of Sydney.
