‘Great, funny, clever… even the heckles at this terrific show are smart.’
★★★★ Scotsman

Are you sci-curious? If so, Festival of the Spoken Nerd are bang* in the middle of the comedy / science Venn diagram.

At last they are bringing the best of their science, songs and spreadsheets here in a laugh-a-minute extravaganza (rounded to nearest whole laugh; actually 1.12 laughs per minute).

Together, experiments maestro Steve Mould, geek songstress Helen Arney and stand-up mathematician Matt Parker have been featured on Qi, created a genuinely “experimental” comedy show for BBC Radio 4, played the Hammersmith Apollo with Professor Brian Cox and toured their latest show to the Edinburgh Fringe and an audience of 15 kilo-people around the UK.

This show is a strict subset of the greatest material from the ‘resplendently geeky trio’ (Times). Full Frontal Nerdity guaranteed!

*show also contains things that go bang

Wed 18 Jan, 9pm

Thu 19 Jan, 9pm. For people who use British Sign Language.
