Cambridge Science Festival: Full Frontal Nerdity: Festival Of The Spoken Nerd, Helen Arney, Matt Parker, Steve Mould, Special Guests
The Spoken Nerds return to Cambridge Science Festival with a new night of comedy, science and special guests at the Union Society. Fresh back from
their first UK tour, stand-up mathematician Matt Parker, geek songstress Helen Arney and BBC1 experiments guy Steve Mould have created a showand-
tell night out of all their favourite things. If you enjoy comedy at the geeky end of the spectrum, join Spoken Nerd for an evening of laughter, wonder –
and full frontal nerdity!
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
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!
