How do you make climate change funny? You weave in a few funny personal stories, tell surfer jokes, impersonate a few well known and not so well known personalities. And you are a biologist turned comedian. And by the way, enjoyed the eye candy – not a bad guy to look at if you enjoy that sort of thing.
