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!

@ 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!

Fun and Photography, Improvising to eBay Items, and Photos from Santiago
Presentations Vikram Jammula sure loves photography, and in his presentation (from PKN Hyderabad Vol. 9) -- featuring some fantastic visuals -- he hopes to make us all understand why. This presentation (in German, from PKN Augsburg Vol. 1) is made up of random selections, forcing Dominic Antritter to improvise to images he has never seen. The slides are all strange and funny -- and real -- eBay auctions that needed some explaining. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is a poster for Osijek's upcoming Vol. 1, set for October 5 -- you'll find the presenters listed with links on the official event page. Photos We were big fans of the poster for PKN Santiago Vol. 3, and now have a photo gallery [Flickr] to share from the event itself. Calendar Here's what to look for tonight (September 13): PKN Ottawa Vol. 6, PKN Burlington Vol. 8,PKN Perth Vol. 10, PKN Bordeaux Vol. 8, and a special edition PK event in Amsterdam at the Stedelijk Museum.

Fun by Design
Design can be beautiful, simple, and stark -- so why not add fun to that list? In today's Presentation of the Day, "Fun by Design" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 77, Koichi Suzuno (of Torafu Architects) shows off three design projects he has worked on in his spare time. From kitchen tools in the shape of children's building blocks to a small wooden table that can be hung over the railing of your balcony, his small projects all incorporate -- to a certain degree -- an element of fun.
Putting the Fun into Funky Spaces
"So after a lot of beer we decided to make a big, traveling park that flies to several locations all over the world." HUNK Design duo Bart Cardinaal and Nadine Roos come from Rotterdam, Netherlands and here they show off some of their radical interior and exterior design work. In "Putting the Fun into Funky Spaces" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 116 we see that from funky interior redesigns and remodels, to outdoor patterned park spaces using artificial grass, HUNK is changing the way people use and interact with space.
Born Into Fun
"I have an insatiable need to be around people, how they think and experience the world." Filmmaker, Culturist, Wanderer, Chloe Walter-Wallace talks about being born into fun, growing up Jamaica. In "Born into Fun" from PKN New Orleans Vol. 13 she speaks about finding her path and love for anthropology which has lead her to her true passions for documentary film-making, working with non-profits on various media related projects, and her constant love for Jamaica.
Education = Fun
We need to redefine the role of the teacher. We don’t need information transferrers or deficit detectives, we need treasure hunters who direct children along their paths. Visual journalist Janna Ulrich speaks on the importance of connecting and relating disparate subject within education. In “Education = Fun” from PKN Breda Vol. 7, she suggests that education currently lacks core elements of fun, analysis, and empathy.
5 reasons why Pecha Kucha is **THE** night out in Coventry this Friday...
Yes, it's Pecha Kucha night at the Tin Music & Arts centre from 7pm this Friday, here's 5 reasons why this night of merry amusement just might be for you... 1) If you like TED talks, stand up comedy or open mic nights - Pecha Kucha is sort of like all three rolled into one. At each night there's a massive mix of zany, opinionated, inspirational and downright oddball people talking (or perhaps shouting, dancing, miming or singing) through a series of 20 images. You don't have to worry about stifling any yawns, each person is only allowed 20 seconds per image... before you know it you've had six and a half minutes of eclectic entertainment... and after 3 or 4 you realise the £3 entry is definitely giving your two bob's worth. 2) TFI Friday and alcohol is served. The Tin offer loads of continental drinks and local brews including Coventry's very own Byatt's beer. 3) Fighting winter flu? You can watch Pecha Kucha from your sickbed - All the Pecha Kucha presentations are put online at www.pechakucha.org/cities/coventry. Seriously laugh-out-loud recommendations from the Pecha Kucha Coventry 'Christmas' edition are: How to Annoy Your Friends on Facebook at Christmas by Simon Fairbanks and Placing Children on Your Lap: the Art of Ventriloquism by Michael Mayhew. You can also follow antics via Twitter live on the night @PKN_coventry. 4) Try it and like it? You can go to a Pecha Kucha night ANYWHERE in the world. Originally starting in Tokyo (the tongue twisting "Pecha Kucha" title means "chit chat"), nights now take place in over 700 cities worldwide. So next time you're surfing the Air B&B waves to Dubai, Budapest, San Francisco or Paris you can also take in a Pecha Kucha night*. 5) If you get the itch after seeing (and possibly secretly mocking) others, you can have a go too. Anyone is welcome to sign up to 'do' a Pecha Kucha night on any subject, in any style, with any images and props you might care to use. Once you've completed this curious right-of-passage, you realise there's no return; it's addictive, it's fun and it's a serious preference to sitting in and worrying about your post-January diet. See you on Friday! *disclaimer - not all nights may be as good as Pecha Kucha Coventry. Please also note that you could be educated or inspired and that there's a serious risk of meeting people... PECHA KUCHA COVENTRY Friday 20th February 7pm-11pm 'Design your City' - a theme for Global Pecha Kucha Night @ The Tin Music & Arts (formerly Taylor John's House), Leicester Row, Coventry, West Midlands, CV14BN Presenters, event details, maps here.
Being Funny When You're Really Not That Funny
"If you can make them laugh -- bring joy, happiness, connect with them -- it's worth it." Zainal Bostaman, engineer by day and stand-up comic by night, talks about how he began his comic career (miserably) and after several hits and misses, reached a point where people can properly laugh at his jokes. In "Being Funny When You're Really Not That Funny" from PKN Bandar Seri Begawan Vol. 2, we see that he now holds comedy workshops and teaches others on how to be funny when they think they're not really that funny.
PechaKucha Maastricht contributes € 1200 to PechaKucha Global Fund
Mission accomplished! We at PechaKucha Maastricht are delighted to announce that we have been able to deliver a €1200 contribution to the Global PechaKucha Fund, as a token of gratitude for all the help and good services received from the global PechaKucha organisation in Tokyo over the years. For each ticket sold in 2014-2015, we reserved €1 for the Fund, which was established to support the many initiatives coordinated by the PechaKucha team in Tokyo, including the global PechaKucha website, where each one of the more than 800 PechaKucha cities in the world is able to host its own city page. PechaKucha Maastricht is very grateful for the exposure it has consistently received on the global PechaKucha website. It has already been selected twice as city of the week, due to the quality of our speakers' presentations, and many of these have been featured as Presentation of the Day on the global PechaKucha homepage. This has been greatly appreciated by our speakers, who saw their ideas and projects being shared with an even bigger worldwide audience. The perfect occasion to personally hand over our contribution came at the end of June when I had the opportunity to travel to Tokyo for professional reasons. What's more, it turned out that the dates of my trip coincided precisely with the date of the PechaKucha event in Tokyo! There were more than 300 PechaKucha fans at Super Deluxe that night and the atmosphere in the room was both relaxed and energetic, with everyone talking and connecting with one another, enjoying the great music by DJ bemsha and eager to listen to the speakers of the night. I particularly enjoyed meeting the Tokyo team - Mark Dytham, Astrid Klein, Johnny Linnert, Mariko Yokogi, Don Kratzer and Brian Scott Peterson - with whom I have been so closely in touch by email but, except for Mark, never spoken face to face! My turn to present came in the second half of the night. I was introduced both in Japanese and in English by PechaKucha founders Mark and Astrid, who said how pleased they were to welcome a city organiser of PechaKucha Maastricht in Tokyo. In my presentation, I spoke about my family story, including my Japanese origins and I explained why PechaKucha was so important in my life in Maastricht. When the last slide of my presentation appeared on the screen, I produced the cardboard revealing the donation from the PechaKucha Maastricht community and the entire audience cheered and applauded with enthusiasm. The effect of surprise was complete and Mark and Astrid could not conceal their emotion when they received our contribution. They explained to the audience how much this financial support meant for the PechaKucha organisation and how much it would enhance the Global Fund's ability to develop innovative ways to share the creativity of the PechaKucha community with the world. It was an unforgettable night in Tokyo. And yes, I agree with our friends in Tokyo: PechaKucha Maastricht rocks! With thanks to Brian for the great pictures!
