Australia’s best comedy podcast is coming to Newcastle to do a show about the beginning of the end of the world.

A Rational Fear’s “I Feel Fine” show is a night of laughing in the face of the scariest things facing the planet: extreme weather, rising sea levels and global warming.

If your SkyNews watching Uncle doesn’t believe in it, we’re making fun of it — in horrific hilarious detail.

Join host Dan Ilic with Lewis Hobba (Triple J), Kirsten Drysdale (Reputation Rehab), DJ Dylabolical (Newsfighters podcast) Georgina Wood (Lock The Gate) and James Pender (Sammy J) plus other guests for an evening that can only be described as #QandA on crack.

Can satire change the world? Never.

Can satire be more powerful than journalism? Doubtful.

Can satire be journalism? Probably not.

Australia’s top satirists will ask themselves these questions and come up with the same answers during a special live event from A Rational Fear and JNI.

Join some of Australia’s most available smart arses as they wrangle with their (questionable) career choices and take a deep dive into satire’s ability to replace journalists at half the price.

Featuring cartoonist Cathy Wilcox, Alice Fraser (The Bugle), Mark Humphries (7.30), Alex lee (The Feed), Lewis Hobba (Triple J) and Dan Ilic.
