‘With our finite planet as the star of the evening, the seriously funny Rod Quantock takes his hatchet of humour to the unspoken threats of peak oil, peak soil, peak water, peak food, peak money, peak everything. And, of course, the pachyderm in the parlour: Peak population.

Oh, and Climate Change.

From the carbon cycle to resource crises and population over-shoot, “Pardon My Carbon” brings clarity and honesty to the greatest issues of this or any other age.’

Rod Quantock is an award-winning comedian who has for the last decade been researching, writing and performing shows about Climate Change, Limits to Growth and grim realities.
Shows like ‘Bugger the Polar Bears, This is Serious’, ‘The Wonderful World of Climate Change’, ‘Pardon My Carbon’ and ‘The People We Should Eat First’ have won acclaim and taken him around the country.

What the critics have to say:
(Rod) is the refreshing word on climate change… (He) has found a way through the science, the economics, the politics, and the apathy. His formidable knowledge is slathered in wit.’ THE CANBERRA TIMES

‘You’ll learn some great tips for rebuttal when it comes to the deniers and the do-nothings polluting the climate change debate. Rod says everything you want to say. Everything you want to scream. He’s right, but Bugger The Polar is more than just catharsis for greenies. Much more.’ AUSTRALIAN STAGE REVIEW

‘In today’s world it’s important to learn, but it’s equally important to laugh. Quantock had us doing both (with) wit, character and knowledge. He is current, relevant, honest and hilariously brutal.’ THE PUN

‘Quantock is the archetypal wise fool adrift in a dark and dangerous world. Very funny and very true.’ THE AUSTRALIAN

‘We walked away entertained, reflective and finally, amazed.’ DAILY TELEGRAPH

‘Hilarious, accessible and passionate” HERALD SUN
