Sjov på Kommando

BY DAN KNUDSEN
@ VOL 38 ON SEP 04, 2018

Dan Knudsen is a professional illlustrator and creator of comics and comic strips.

He talks to the audience about how you shouldn't - as a comics artist - seek funny situations, but instead create an interesting set of characters and let the funny situations develop FOR you.

This mindset is perhaps also applicable in the rest of the world. Judge for yourself and please enjoy!

Dad Jokes

BY SANDER JENSEN
@ VOL 38 ON SEP 04, 2018

Sander Jensen is a polarizing person. You either love him or hate him. This is because Sander is a true expert in Dad Jokes - the short wordplays that have become the plague of the world in recent years.

Dad jokes are hilarious puns in very short form, often just a sentence or two. Sander tells us about his favourites, his kids' definitely-not-favourites and how to use them for good or bad!

Dr. PowerPoint

BY JACK JACKSON
@ VOL 38 ON SEP 04, 2018

Dr. Powerpoint, also known as Kaj Noskaj, is the first Pecha Kucha Aarhus-presenter to have his own entrance monologue. And also the first to have his own entrance music. And also the first Nobel Peace Prize-recipient, although that might not be entirely true...

 

Go on a trip with Dr Powerpoint into the problems of Pecha Kucha Aarhus. Why is it so difficult to make a presentation?!

With science that's almost real and graphs that nearly make sense, he comes close to answering some of the questions.

This is an absolute one-to-watch.

 

(Disclaimer: The presentation contained several animations and transitions that cannot be seen on this website. Sorry!)

(Disclaimer: Dr. Powerpoint's real name is Kaj Noskaj. And Kaj Noskaj's real name is Jack Jackson)

#sangeomfrugt v.03

BY METTE KROG
@ VOL 38 ON SEP 04, 2018

A sure pick for the Pecha Kucha Aarhus All Star-Team would be Mette Krog. Back to give us - for at least the third time - an introduction to puns and wordplays that mix songs with fruits and vegetables. This time we get an example that fits the John Cleese-theme and an update on how this genre of Instagram comedy is faring.

Sounds weird? Not when Mette guides you through it!
