At the beginning of the year, we welcomed a new Nicer Tuesdays format, inviting two top creatives to address a theme each month via our custom built online events platform. Last month, our speakers discussed the topical theme of ‘creative responses to crisis’. But this month, we’ve decided to go in a cheerier direction, exploring the importance of humour in the creative industry. Taking place on Tuesday 23 February at 6 pm GMT, we invite you to sit back, relax and have a laugh with the Bay Area-based illustrator Min Heo and head of comedy at Blink Industries, Charlie Perkins.
You can pay what you can with our tiered ticketing system and grab yourself a ticket just below. Also, by making an account on our online event platform, you can browse all our It’s Nice That events. If you need more encouragement to attend this month’s event, find out more about February’s Nicer Tuesdays below.
As head of comedy at the London-based production company Blink Industries, Charlie Perkins sure knows how to induce a laugh through the screen. She’s worked on viral cult phenomenon Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared, the alternative comedy show The Paddock commissioned by E4, and most recently, Off The Air showing on Adult Swim. Bringing together dozens of fantastic creatives including It’s Nice That favourites Nadia Lee Cohen, Raman Djafari, Jack Sachs and Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared co-creator Joe Pelling; Charlie will join us for an in-depth Q&A off the back of the show’s release, exploring the value of comedy in the arts. Having curated 18 segments for Off The Air, Charlie is no stranger to what makes people laugh. Discussing the unnerving, weird and surreal comedic take on this latest Adult Swim gem, the head of comedy will explain her view on the importance of comedy; something we’re in need of more than ever right now.
You may recognise the Bay Area-based illustrator’s work from our Weekly Comic back in November, when Min had us in stitches following the storylines of her fluffy bunnies and moody kittens. At the end of this month, we can’t wait to hear from this charming illustrator combining lovable characters with warm colours and a silly sense of humour in an unmistakable style unique to Min. With nearly 30,000 followers on Instagram, Min’s illustrations are often the much-needed pick-me-up (chuckle and all) that her fans need. Having been commissioned by the likes of The New Yorker, The New York Times, Google, Facebook, Vogue and many more, the established illustrator will join us at February’s Nicer Tuesdays to explain her creative process and how she instils these nuggets of creative ingenuity to deliver laugh after laugh for us all.
