VOL 38

September 04, 2018
@ Carmel

Har du også en svaghed for dad jokes? Vil du høre om Den komiske Tragedie? Møde Dr. Powerpoint? Finde ud af, hvordan man er sjov på kommando? Eller bare blive glædeligt overrasket over et uventet emne?

Vanen tro byder dette PechaKucha arrangement på 10 vidt forskellige oplægsholdere som har en fælles udfordring: Lave et oplæg på 20x20 sekunder = 400 sekunder = 6:40 min = 1/9 time = 0,0046 dag

Så kom og vær med, når Pecha Kucha vol. 38 fyrer op for grin, skævhed og forundring.

#sangeomfrugt v.03

@ 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!

Aarhus Latterklub

@ VOL 38 ON SEP 04, 2018

Finn Palle Jensen visits Pecha Kucha Aarhus to talk about a thing that is steadily gaining popularity: Laughter Clubs!

Finn is a member of Aarhus Latterklub ("Aarhus Laughter Club") and explains to us why he enjoys it so much. As he says, it's not just fun, but also very healthy!

Poetry Slam and How To Be Creative

@ VOL 38 ON SEP 04, 2018

Matt Charnock takes the audience on a whirlwind trip into his mind and how he conjures up humour, poetry and creative thoughts.

You better sit comfortably and strap in, because this trip is not for the faint of heart. But you will enjoy it!

Wasting Your Time

@ VOL 38 ON SEP 04, 2018

Rasmus Baltser is literally here to waste your time. What are you gonna do about it? Exactly.

Rasmus tells us about time and how time goes fast and slow. He will tell you how it feels to waste it and what might yet be done in spite of that.

Dr. PowerPoint

@ 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)

Lynkursus: Socialt Akavede Situationer

@ VOL 38 ON SEP 04, 2018

Christian Hersker is here to supply Pecha Kucha Aarhus with a very serious (not really) crash course in Socially Awkward Situations!

Who might potentially create such a situation? How do we handle it? The questions are many, and finally we have some answers too. Enjoy!

Dad Jokes

@ 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!

Kjeld & Dirch

@ VOL 38 ON SEP 04, 2018

Jesper Gaarskjær comes by Pecha Kucha Aarhus not to share jokes, but to talk about the two most famous men in Denmark to ever make jokes. Kjeld Petersen and Dirch Passer were a comedy duo in Denmark who performed to rave reviews and packed audiences every single time.

They were famous on the stage and Jesper, author of a book on the duo, sheds some light on how things were behind the scenes.

Sjov på Kommando

@ 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!
