Watch The Simpsons star Harry Shearer at Intellectual Forum event

You can now see one of the stars of the internationally renowned TV series The Simpsons take questions from the public on the livestream of an Intellectual Forum event.

Harry Shearer voices some of The Simpsons most loved characters including Mr Burns, Smithers, Principal Skinner and Ned Flanders. He answered questions from the audience including: is satire still important today? What are the differences between American and British political satire? Is it possible to be too angry to create good satire? Is The Simpsons still relevant? What would Ned Flanders have to say about this topic?

The audience at the sold-out event also enjoyed special guest appearances from some of Shearer's best known characters. The livestream is available to watch now and you can also see shorter videos of some of the highlights on the College YouTube channel. Please be aware that some of the videos contain strong language.
