Australian Skeptics in the Pub - NEW VENUE - The Occidental Hotel, Wynyard

**Special Guest Speaker**

TIM FERGUSON from the Doug Anthony All Stars on "Skeptical SEX"!

Comedian, TV star, author, skeptic and co-director of the recent hit movie 'Spin Out', Tim Ferguson is also one of Australia's more prominent sufferers of MS.  But that hasn't stopped him travelling the world, doing shows with the Doug Anthony All Stars and lecturing on comedy.

In his presentation, Tim will look at Skeptical Sex and other issues relating to critical thinking from his point of view.

Following the talk, Tim will be interviewed by that other legend of radio, TV and podcasting, the one and only Maynard!

Join us to hear the wit and wisdom of these veterans of Australian entertainment in an evening of insights and humour. 

RSVPs - Numbers are limited and only those who register via Meetup will be admitted on the night.  There will also be a waiting list once the event is fully booked.


On the first Thursday of each month, Australian Skeptics and friends get together in the Occidental Hotel at 43 York Street, Sydney (on the corner of Erskine Street and behind Wynyard train station).

People generally start arriving at around 6pm after work. The talk begins at 7pm and lasts for about 30 minutes. The night finishes when the last person leaves.

Enjoy a meal and a drink accompanied by lively discussion, free spoon bending lessons and the company of other sceptics, as we cover a variety of interesting topics.

There is no need to belong to Australian Skeptics - all are welcome. Bring friends too.

Parking is available nearby at:

The Queen Victoria Building, 111 York Street

The 383 Kent Street Car Park, 383 Kent Street

The 321 Kent Street Car Park, 86 Sussex Street (entry in Sussex Street)

    I forgot to add Mary Ann Irvin. Is there really a waiting list? The anti-vaxxers might be trying a Denial Of Seats on us?

    This event sounds really interesting. I recently heard Tim interviewed on Radio National. Does it cost to attend?
