A New Year, and a new twist on an old favourite.
Science Showoff, the night where anyone can do anything for 9 minutes on a stage as long as it’s about science, is back for 2013!
2012 has been a huge year for us, at least up until 17th September as I write this. It might all go wrong before January. The world might even end, although to be honest if it was going to end in 2012 it would have been nice if it had happened before the Olympics. I’m glad it didn’t happen after the Olympics and before the Paralympics, because that would have been pure discrimination and I can’t face the idea of the Apocalypse at a tribunal.
“But what does this have to do with science?” you might ask. And you’d be right to ask.
For this gig, we’re inviting women to sign up, but not men. Bold because that way I have to delete fewer blokes from the Doodle and send fewer emails. People from any walk of life can sign up*. Steve** will still be compering, if he**’s alive by then. January is a long way away after all.
It’ll be at the Wilmington Arms, as usual, which is still on Rosebery Ave, EC1R 4RL. Doors 7pm, gig starts 7.30, aftermath, chat and drunken acts from 10pm.
Sign up now! Gigs have been filling up a couple of months in advance recently, so it’s probably a good idea to grab a slot as soon as an idea pops into your head!
*We do reserve the right to veto performances or performers, just in case.
**in 2013 we’ll all talk about ourselves in the third person. I mean “they’ll all talk about themselves in the third person”. Or something.
