Glasgow Science Festival: Bright Club Science Special: Simon Watt
Scientists do stand up! Glasgow's favourite research-fuelled comedy night presents a science special for Glasgow Science Festival, hosted by biologist and broadcaster Simon Watt.
Simon Watt is a biologist, writer, science communicator, comedian and TV presenter. He is a regular contributor to TV, radio and web and is perhaps best known as a presenter on the BAFTA winning documentary series Inside Nature's Giants and the Channel 4 special The Elephant: Life After Death.
He runs the Ugly Animal Preservation Society which is a comedy night with a conservation twist. It went on to find global fame/notoriety when it hosted an online campaign resulting in the election of the blobfish as the ugliest animal on the planet.
The society's aim is to use comedy to make some of Mother Nature's more
aesthetically challenged endangered species into stars.
