Drunk ___ Talks (formerly Drunk TED Talks)

Drunk ___ Talks is the world’s premiere source of drunk knowledge. Writers, artists, comedians, and other performers make PowerPoints on subjects they’re passionate about — from the finer points of how animals have sex to Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours — then get drunk and deliver their taking points to an audience.

Tonight’s speakers:

  • Leor Galil (Chicago Reader music)
  • Kyle Ryan (A.V. Club senior editor)
  • ShowYouSuck (rapper, Air Credits)

Past speakers have included Tavi Gevinson, Sadie Dupuis (of Sad13 and Speedy Ortiz), Heben Nigatu (Another Round, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert), Josh Gondelman (Last Week Tonight), Dan McCoy (The Flophouse, The Daily Show), Amy Rose Spiegel (author of Action), and writers and editors at a ton of places like Jezebel, Rolling Stone, BuzzFeed, The New York Times, Slate, etc.
