How can a stand-up comedian help save animals? David Studebaker, named “One of the 10 Best Comics to Watch,” set out to find the answer. As the creator and host of the YouTube documentary series David’s Ark, he shares some of the challenges animals face and highlights the people and organizations that are fighting to protect them.

In this event David will give some background on the series and the animal advocates he works with. Then attendees will get the chance to ask him questions about animals, animal carers, comedy, and anything else on their minds.
