Avast there me hearties! The brave sailors of Science Showoff are back in town, and this time we’ve left the water behind for a new home, safe above the imminent flooding caused by successive governments’ failure to take climate change seriously due to lobbying by big oil companies.
Other than that, we’re good. You’ll get to see the usual mixture of weird and wonderful, brainy and bonkers as each of our acts gets nine minutes to do ANYTHING AT ALL about science.
Tonight we’re joined by:
Steve Cross – MC, science comedian, troublemaker.
Fraeya Whiffin – How to commit genocide and get away with it.
Matt Camilleri – A journey from Light to Fuel
Will Davies – Lies My Mother Told. Turns out clicking joints and arthritis are not so causally linked after all. What other ‘facts’ have we all been conned ino believing?
Vicky Miller – The awesome power of mutations
Scary Boots (may be a pseudonym) – ‘Everything you know about diamonds is wrong’ – how the world’s most expensive gemstone isn’t expensive, rare, sparkly, or friendly.
Jemma Rowlandson – How to save the world with Leerdammer cheese.
Ezzy Pearson – The psychology of conspiracy theories, though there is a large chance it will just turn into me shouting at Moon Landing deniers for 9 minutes
AND MORE AMAZING ACTS TO BE ANNOUNCED.
The gig is at The Hatchet Inn (NOT THE GRAIN BARGE WE HAVE MOVED) 27 Frogmore Street, Avon, Bristol BS1 5NA on Thursday May 21st. Doors open 7pm.
