Ray O'Leary

A PESSIMIST'S GUIDE TO OPTIMISM

new zealander flag small88

Ray O’Leary (Billy T Nominee 2017) presents a timid unleashing of opinions from an overeducated man with too much time on his hands. Armed with nothing but a philosophy degree, this pessimist will show you how we can be optimistic about the big moral dilemmas facing society – charity, criminal justice, psychic dogs. His analytical, sometimes dark and always hilarious style will have you laughing and feeling like you almost learnt something.
