About this event

January in San Francisco is all about Sketchfest Comedy Festival and all things funny. This book talk is certainly that! Join us for an evening of laughter with Irish entertainer and bestselling author David Nihill.

In what doesn't sound like the best plan ever, David decided to overcome his fears by pretending to be an accomplished comedian called "Irish Dave" who just happened to be on tour in America for one full year, crashing as many comedy clubs, festivals and shows as possible. One part of the plan was at least logical: he was already Irish and already called Dave. In one year, David went from being deathly afraid of public speaking to hosting a business conference, regularly performing stand-up comedy, and winning storytelling competitions in front of packed houses. He did it by learning from some of the best public speakers in the world: stand-up comedians.

He also told a lot of funny stories along the way. Join us as David shares them along with the principles, techniques and tools of the world’s best TED speakers in a humorous talk based on his bestselling book Do You Talk Funny? 7 Comedy Habits to Become a Better (And Funnier) Public Speaker.

For the first 50 people to buy tickets, a signed copy of David's bestselling book Do You Talk Funny will be included.
