For the first time ever Bright Club, London’s clever variety night where all sorts of people get to make jokes about their work, is going to take on science and the media in one go.
ADVANCE TICKETS ON SALE FROM:
Brainboxes on the night are:
Helen Keen – MC, compere, referee, writer and performer of Radio 4’s It Is Rocket Science. So funny that she can’t be called a “science comedian”. She’s more of a “comedian”.
Strawberry & Cream – the most delicious cabaret band this side of Planet Ice Cream. Two girls, two double basses and a lot of filth. Trying out some new science material. Maybe.
Nic Fleming – Science journalist and author of “Sorry darling, I can’t do the vacuuming. It might damage my sperm count: The best excuse yet for men not to do the housework…” and “Horses can count, new study says”.
Jenny Gimpel – PR guru and the author of the only press release we’ve ever seen about “wobble factor” http://www.ucl.ac.uk/media/library/jellybanquet
Tom Clarke – Channel 4 News Science Correspondent. Sensible enough not to have articles with funny titles that can be easily found via Google.
David Adam – Environment journalist and author of “Spike-nosed tree frog and tame woolly rat found in Indonesian New Guinea” and “Iceland volcano causes fall in carbon emissions as eruption grounds aircraft” (how topical!).
Sam Tazzyman – researcher into reproductive strategies and sperm production. Inspirer of many incredible headlines.
Jay Stone – molecular biologist, science writer, inspirer of design and NOBELini winner.
