If you’re thinking of coming, please comment on this page – then we can know who’ll be there, and you can find other friendly faces!
Venue: Quays Theatre, The Lowry
Time: Thursday 13th February 2014, 8pm
Festival of the Spoken Nerd is where sparkling wit meets fascinating science in a comedy night for the insatiably sci-curious. It’s hosted by award-winning geek songstress Helen Arney, stand-up mathematician Matt Parker and BBC 1 science experiments guy Steve Mould.
It’s a celebration of science with comedy, songs, live experiments and unashamed geekiness. Sometimes the Spoken Nerds are joined by guest scientists and comedy headliners, and there’s always time for questions at the end (with extra marks for showing your workings).
They’ve performed in sold-out shows at London’s Bloomsbury Theatre, Shakespeare’s Globe, Hammersmith Apollo, Theatre Royal Haymarket and Udderbelly on the South Bank, plus Green Man and Latitude music festivals, TED and the Edinburgh Fringe.
