Never miss another 'Festival Of The Spoken Nerd' show

Brighton Comedy Festival: Are You Sci-Curios?: Festival Of The Spoken Nerd
Stand-up mathematician Matt Parker, geek songstress Helen Arney and experiments guy Steve Mould present a comedy night for the fearlessly inquisitive. After sell-out shows in London and science festivals around the country, they're bringing their unique mix of facts and fun to the Brighton Comedy Festival for the sum total of one night only.
Join three of the UK's best (and nerdiest) performers for an evening of comedy, science, music, maths and interactive experiments as they ask those all-important questions: How can you use a parabola to set stuff on fire? How does the angler fish make love? And how dangerous can things get with just numbers?
"Don't miss this gem of intelligent fun" - STV Edinburgh
"A riotously funny show about science...brimming with unashamed geekery" - Three Weeks

This event takes place at Brighton Dome, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Festival Of The Spoken Nerd is the brain child of stand-up mathematician Matt Parker, geek songstress Helen Arney and experiments guy Steve Mould. These wonderfully nerdy performers present a celebration of science, comedy and unashamed geekiness, with live experiments, audience participation, and occasional specially selected guest scientists and comedy headliners.
There's always time for questions at the end, and extra marks are given for showing your workings. Be warned, sometimes things do go BANG!
