You have discovered or invented something amazing. You'll be given an object, tell us about it and answer our probing questions.
Bullshit your way through our carefully prepared business presentation slides. Can you explain the upward trending graph? And what’s the relevence of the venn diagram?
You have a whole minute to talk about anything you want. Easy right? Nup. "Um", "Ahh" or pause and you'll be buzzed off stage.
They say you can commentate anything. Can you? We’ll play a video, the rest is up to you.
Oh no! There’s been a catastrophic failure of our audio gear and the movie has no soundtrack. You and a friend will need to provide the dialog and any sound effects.
You’ve lost your voice. You have to hand over your cue cards to someone else. But you only have time to write the first one.
You have three minutes to keep talking. Say anything. Just don’t stop.
You’re giving a presentation you’ve never seen before. You’ll get four images, 90 seconds, and a very interested audience.
You’ll need money for your new start-up and we’ve found an attentive mob of investors champing at the bit to help you out.
Everyone has a story worth listening to. Step on the stage and we will introduce you. And your story.
“Good everning. It’s 8pm and here are the news headlines”. Six news stories. Think fast and tell us what we need to know.
One of you is an expert. One of you knows nothing. Our audience will ask the questions. Can they find the impostor in one minute?
We've taken the best speeches, they greatest speeches, and asked our AI to create a whole new speech. Your job is to deliver it convincingly.
You'll be given the scenario, your job is to talk your way through it using the provided slides. You'll be lucky if they have anything to do with your scene.
A picture tells a thousand words. Make your announcement, tell us what we're looking at, and the press will have some questions.
And we keep inventing more.
Roll up, roll up! The Art of Bullshit is Melbourne's most fun participation comedy event!
Stretch your stamina, test your tact, and whip out your wits against one or more of our gutsy games. Or perhaps you'd prefer to sit back and be egregiously entertained by those who dare dauntlessly dance to their dialog?
The Art of Bullshit is an entertaining evening of impromptu presentations and pitches. Each presenter learns their talk topic mere moments before they're due to speak. It's like Toastmasters, except it's not.
Traditional speaker improvement methods require you to know your material, practice, and get better at communicating. The Art of Bullshit throws caution to the wind, and concentrates on building your resilience and adaptability.
The best part of this approach is that it's a very safe space to fail, and we learn best when we fail. Frog in your throat? Cat got your tongue? No problems; blame the fact you were put on the spot. Has 20:20 hindsight given you the best retort or pun 20 minutes too late? Lock it away for next time.
Come along and watch the show. You don't have to speak, the evenings will be better with a fuller audience. Those who do speak will have the chance to play a game of their choice, and one lucky speaker will win the highly coveted Bullshit Artist of the Evening award.
