About this event
This is a show about how the ancient world isn’t all that ancient. The same cabal that controlled society then controls it now.
If you liked The Da Vinci Code you’ll love this show. It’s my proudest accomplishment to date other than the smash hit success video “Top Ten Cutest Dogs”.
Presented by: Jordan Shanks
Jordan Shanks is a controversial political satirist, investigative journalist and podcast creator.
He has produced over 720 no-holds-barred videos for his YouTube channel, has over 600,000 thousand followers on social media and his videos have been viewed over 160 million times.
Jordan hopes he will foster some sort of interest in socio-political discourse, maybe even stir positive change, but most people keep asking him to dress up as a high school kid he once knew. Sometimes he complies.
Praise for Jordan Shanks
“Shanks, a perfectionist, leaves no stone unturned as he weaves, dodges and dips through his argument equating Ancient Rome to the modern political landscape”…The Advertiser, 4/5 Stars
“It was similar to Horrible Histories if it were loaded with Australian slang, references to Von Dutch hats, and a heart-warming tribute to perhaps the most misunderstood man in Roman history”…The University of Adelaide, 4/5 Stars
“Jordies keeps it balanced with a healthy dose of his signature dumbass voices, deliciously politically incorrect burns (this time directed towards today’s historians) and a dodgy photoshop-filled PowerPoint presentation”…College Adelaide, 4/5 Stars
