Damien Power

Man Puts His Dreams in a Sock

Presented by Token Events

Achieve your dreams. Reach your full potential. Be the best that you can be. God is dead but not to worry – there is a new religion of our time: You!

In this hilarious new hour, multi-award winning comedian Damien Power will delve into our culture of narcissism.

He’ll explore how society dictates our greatest desires and dreams. You must be told your dreams by the society you live in, no one is born with their dreams.

No baby comes out screaming “I want to be a financial planner”. What are the dreams we are told by our society, where do they come from, how do they function, what happens when we confront them?
