Theater of Public Policy

The Theater of Public Policy joins TEDxMinneapolis at the end of the show to mix up the ideas, messages, and topics from all the speakers at the 2016 event to bring some laughter to the audience, speakers, and the volunteers.

The Theater of Public Policy is Minnesota’s favorite (and coincidentally only) civics-inspired improv comedy company. The troupe uses unscripted comedy to bring hard “thinky” issues to life. Since 2011, the cast has tackled everything from healthcare policy to education, the Farm Bill to national politics. Each show is different, but each promises audiences learning disguised as entertainment. Learn more and see some videos of past performances at Follow them on Twitter at @T2_P2.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
