Sat 10 Feb West End - Buddhist Comedy Night

Posted on behalf of Ahimsa House...

Buddhist Comedy Night
10th February, Saturday

<> Nisker. Friends! Earthlings! Humans! Who are we, how did we get into the mess we’re in, and is there any hope for us and our species? In this comic monologue, Wes Nisker explores the foolish human condition and the joys and sorrows of living in the modern age. He will reveal the secrets of anti-matter and tantric sex, explore the issues of war, species extinction and global warming, and expose the true heart of the New Age spiritual movement. Mr. Nisker places today’s headlines in the context of biological evolution and all of human history, and thereby offers us the relief and laughter that only vast perspectives can bring. Ahimsa House 26 Horan Street, West End doors open 7pm, show starts 8pm, $15/ $10 concession. A no-alcohol event.
