The evening takes a playful turn as the renowned wit of The Chaser’s Chris Taylor is met with some of the sharpest minds of the Festival. Candid and conversational, highbrow and low, strap yourself in for a lively chat that encompasses everything from pop culture to politics. Relaxed, rollicking and at times risqué, Chris joins guests including My Dad Wrote a Porno’s Jamie Morton; and bestselling author of the Captive Prince trilogy, C.S. Pacat.
