  • publicise its resources to students, researchers, and the general public;
  • celebrate the art of stand-up comedy in a series of public talks, an exhibition, and an academic conference;
  • enhance the national and international reputation of the University of Kent as a centre for pioneering teaching and research;
  • increase public engagement with University research and learning;
  • raise its profile among potential undergraduate and graduate applicants;
  • and provide a platform for future funding applications.
