Kevin Blackmore of Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers, is a madman on stage and according to Billboard Magazine writer Larry LeBlanc, is famous for "leaving audiences breathless with laughter". This, would you believe, is an entertainer who was too shy to join his high school drama club.
Kevin has been known to delight audiences with a mixture of song and buffoonery, flavored with themes that are unique to Newfoundland and at the same time possessing universal appeal.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
