Edinburgh Festival Fringe - Full Frontal Nerdity: Festival Of The Spoken Nerd
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!
'Harnesses comedy to highlight what is fun - and funny - about science' (NewScientist.com)
'Wonderfully witty... What Top Gear would be like if it were about Science' (Chortle)
'Charm and perky curiosity is in its DNA’ (The Guardian)
'A riotously funny show... brimming with unashamed geekery' (Three Weeks)
'Immature, irreverent and a wonderfully imaginative way to present both comedy and science' (Broadway Baby).
