What is it?
The Festival of Bad Ad Hoc Hypotheses (BAHFest) is a celebration of well-argued and thoroughly researched but completely incorrect scientific theories. Six speakers take the stage and present their theories to an illustrious panel of judges in front of a packed house.
BAHFest has celebrated terrible ideas for four years on three continents.
Sarah Hird – Why do Mammals Sleep?
Matt Inman – Jibbers Crabst
Tomer Ullman – The Crying Game
BAHFest is the brainchild of sometimes artist, always curmudgeon Zach Weinersmith, the auteur behind SMBC Comics. Inspired by a comic, BAHFest started as a live event in 2013 at MIT. Since then, BAHFest has held shows across the globe.
