Seriously Funny Business

Seriously Funny Business is a brand new series of events that sees University of Nottingham Academics, researchers and professionals debate important and topical issues that impact society at large, moderated by some of the UK’s most popular stand-up comedians.

Starting the ball rolling, the first event features Nottingham University Business School Professors Jim Devlin and Laurie Cohen who will be discussing trust, gender and innovation in the world of finance. The debate will be mediated by the comedian Simon Evans and is based on head of the IMF, Christine Lagarde’s remark, that the world might be a different place if there had been a bank called "Lehman Sisters".

Devised in conjunction with Nottingham’s very own Just The Tonic comedy club all profits will support a series of comedy based workshops to develop confidence and communication skills working with a range of targeted groups – including refugee forum, looked-after young people and mental health support groups.
