VEGAN SMYTHE AT WORLD VEGAN DAY Talk Description
If you're in the mood to laugh - and who isn't? - come and join Vegan Smythe for 30 minutes of frantic cruelty-free comedy on the speakers' stage. He'll be performing all new material in preparation for his 2020 Adelaide Fringe show "DON'T SHOOT! I'm a vegan".
Candid chat about fad diets, part-time vegans, food labels, the vegan police, mock meat, Facebook groups, Elon Musk and people who think their dogs are their children.
Don’t miss this unless you’re stranded on a desert island - as vegans often are ... apparently.
Vegan Smythe is a plant-based funny guy who writes and performs original songs and comedy about veganism. Although his YouTube videos have had over 400,000 views, he’s best known for his semi-viral hit Where Do You Get Your Protein? (also known as “the mushroom dance”). He has been described by online fans as “hilarious.. brilliant .. and 'a crucial soundtrack to life on Earth!’” His music has been featured on blogs, podcasts and radio programs worldwide including ABC’s Radio National. He’s performed at festivals around Australia and as an invited guest at VegFest UK, London. He was included in the Amazon hot-selling book “Plant Powered Men”, and once made the cover of Vegan NZ magazine.
Vegan Smythe's anthemic “I Will Be Their Voice” has brought praise from high profile animal activists including World Peace Diet author Dr Will Tuttle and was used in a recent media campaign by the Animal Justice Party. He was interviewed as part of VegWorld Magazine’s 2013 Vegan Palooza, on which his music was highly featured.
Smythe is the alter-ego of classically trained musician Brenton Edgecombe who has been a full-time professional entertainer since 1998.
