About Shawn Jay’s Fun Guide to Nihilism

Shawn Jay is a wandering vagabond philosopher searching for the meaning of life. Will he find it? Does it even exist? Does anybody care?

Ever wondered what happens when an optimist, a pessimist and a nihilist walk into a bar? Or what it would be like to be stuck in a joke for eternity? Or why exactly The Killers are so annoying? Answers to these questions and more in this acclaimed hour of stand-up.

A smart, dark comedy show for thinkers. Prepare. Mentally.

'A brilliant surrealist. Laugh-out-loud humour. Surreal, poignant, inspired' (International Times).
