As punishment for his self-aggrandising craftiness and deceitfulness, Sisyphus was forced to roll an immense boulder up a hill only for it to roll down whenever it neared the top, consigning him to an eternity of useless efforts and unending frustration. Join award-winning comedian Matt Stellingwerf ("Thor & Wendy had a baby...and it was raised by Stephen Fry & George Carlin!" - Libel) as he rolls his own boulder...searching for meaning in a life, seemingly, wasted. From his worthless PhD, to his obsession with Wikipedia. From the pointless lies he tells, to the hubris of thinking he's worth listening to in the first place.
Is there joy to be found in uselessness? Maybe...
