It’s the start of year 4!
After an August of sweet, sweet rest Science Showoff rises again. Like Godzilla after a nutritious breakfast of Frosties, orange juice and nuclear waste. Like a superhero killed off eight months ago in an attempt to get more coverage for comics in mainstream media. Like Jesus. We rise again.
2014-5 starts in Birmingham, for a gig with our good friends the British Science Association. This is our first time at the British Science Festival, but the second time we’ve been to Brum. Last time we played the amazing Birmingham Rep studio, with dancers, actors, storytellers, comedians and scientists on the bill.
The rules of Showoff remain the same: Anyone can sign up to do anything on stage about any kind of science. Your set has to be under 9 minutes in length and… that’s it. We’ll bring a compere who will keep you safe and we’ll sort out a really friendly crowd of only adults (so you can swear A LOT should the mood take you).

The gig is going to be at the Elgar Concert Hall, Bramall Music Building, University of Birmingham. That’s here http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/bramall/hire/index.aspx on Saturday September 6th. We’ll need you from 7pm-10pm. No-one is getting paid (not even the organisers) in order to keep ticket costs down for the Birmingham science fans.
Sign up. Play the original science festival. Blow people’s minds.
