About the event

Tired of bullshit positivity? Aware of the many ways in which the world is fucked up? Think you're smart? Like to laugh about it all as a healthy way to process the trauma that is being alive? This is the show for you! Join nihilistic contrarian and international touring sensation Shawn Jay for a show which is part stand-up comedy, part actual pub quiz, where you get the chance to laugh your socks off, prove you are clever, -and- win alcohol to drink away your pain. Welcome to The Pessimist's Pub Quiz!

This is a show which takes the fruits of our anxieties about technology, climate, war, mental health and death, and bakes it all up into a huge, hilarious, apocalyptic pie, serving up hot slices of humour for you to gobble down gleefully. It also provides you the opportunity to get involved and win prizes, as you and your team battle against the others to be crowned smartest people in the room.

Shawn Jay is a stand-up comedian and wandering vagabond philosopher who has toured all over Australia, New Zealand, Asia and Europe, including a full run at the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival where he premiered his solo show 'A Fun Guide to Nihilism'. Now a regular on the European circuit, performing at festivals and in cities across the continent, his unique brand of thought-provoking humour swings from silly to surreal, tickling your funny bones as well as fingering your brain. This is a comedy show for thinkers. Perpare. Mentally.

🎟️ Tickets from 100DKK online, 180DKK on the door.

This show is entirely in English.
