Bright Club is getting all wistful at the end of spring, with a gig all about wishing. Ever wondered what PhD students really want to be doing with their time, or if a post-doc really is aspiring to save the world? All with a comedy twist?
We’ve picked a bunch of brilliant UCL researchers ready to make you laugh with longing as they share stories from their research. To support them through it, we’ll have two brilliant comedians to share their own wistful wants and keep the comedy coming.
So get your giggle on and join comedians:
Nish Kumar – who ‘will leave you with a warm, fuzzy feeling in your belly and a big smile on your face’ (Time Out)
Mae Martin – remember your sunglasses as Mae ‘sparkles from the moment she takes the stage’ (The Skinny)
And your researchers:
Rob Levy digs data
Anna Ploszajski hearts hydrogen
Nick Neasom is vocal about vowels
Michelle Korda harps on about hips
Dana Boebinger studies speech
