Science Showoff, the anarchic cabaret night where anyone can do anything about any kind of science, returns with a new twist. This is the first show where we have a guest curator (the incredible Elise Bramich) taking us into her little black book of performers for a supernatural evening of comedy, science, music, facts and performance.
Our new home is the basement of the Star of Kings because we think we can cause a lot more trouble underground without getting spotted by the po-faced science police.
Here’s the crack squad Elise has chosen to represent her:
Steve Cross – Science Showoff’s MC and “a super well-informed science troll” (Elise Bramich)
Bec Hill – Bec Hill’s acclaimed solo shows and hugely popular YouTube videos which have garnered over 100,000 views globally have gained her a cult status in both Australia and the UK, where she is now based. She also has a prolific Twitter presence, which led to her being named one of TimeOut’s Top 5 Funniest Comedians on Twitter next to the likes of Milton Jones and Steve Martin.
Eleanor Curry – Why you shouldn’t fall in love with a werewolf: A discussion of medieval love poetry using graphs.
Charlotte Young – Charlotte Young is an artist who makes work concerned with the blurring of fiction and reality, and the possibilities of what occupies the space in between, using video, text, installation and performance.
George Major – The unlikely story of Clifford Sidcup’s Project Sisyphus; how a red 1986 Peugeot 305 Estate exposed an international conspiracy to fake an unmanned mission to Mars
Sam Fletcher – An attempt of pseudo-scientific abilities – including graphology, telekinesis and divination.
Chris Boyd – Don’t breathe. Don’t look back. Look forward instead because Chris Boyd will be talking about extreme weather on the stage in front of you.
Elise Bramich (herself) – Choose Your Own Stephen King Adventure
Chris T-T – “One of the great underground artists of our time.” JON SNOW (Channel 4)
Plus three more incredible acts, one of which we are currently keeping secret!
The gig is on Tuesday March 18th. Doors are at 7pm, and the gig will start at 7.30 SHARP.
For this gig we’re anticipating quite a lot of attention (have you seen that flipping lineup!). Because the venue has a limited capacity we’re selling tickets rather than collecting on the door. Rest assured that all of your ticket money (except WeGotTickets’ fees) will go to Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Tickets are available from: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/262017 They will sell out. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
