Smart meets silly in The Peer Revue, where cutting-edge research fuels improv comedy. Each show features a different superstar researcher who tells stories from their research, which inspire a cast of talented improvisers to create brand new, unscripted comedy. The Peer Revue is a hilarious celebration of social sciences and all things academic. You’ll laugh, and you also might learn.
Why our young adults are getting a raw deal | The Peer Revue Improv Comedy
If you listen to the media, young people should just pull their socks up and cut back on the avocado toast and oat milk lattes. Then they’ll be able to afford the three-bedroom suburban dream, just like their parents’ generation. Is any of this true, or have the ‘Millennials’ and ‘Gen Z’ been sold a lie? Find out with our guest Professor Dan Woodman. Dan is a sociologist of young adulthood and generations at the University of Melbourne, President of the Council for the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, and an Editor in Chief of the Journal of Youth Studies. This special Peer Revue show is part of Social Sciences Week and presented in conjunction with the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia.
