A Co-Production Between Team Sunshine Performance and The Philly Pigeon
Talkers, drunk debaters, sidewalk weather reporters, water cooler pundits, backseat philosophers, pseudo intellectuals, haters, hype-men, chatter boxes, gossips, and even the silent types.
Members of the Society of Civil Discourse are coming together in search of new members. All are welcome.
Join us in hating on, loving, philosophizing about and debating, things that don’t matter. Show up on time for our induction ceremony. Discuss silly things with your fellow inductees, then watch and heckle the Great Debate.
What is it?The Society of Civil Discourse is an interactive debate/bullshitting/appreciation event. It’s about style, not substance.
It happens in two phases.
