It’s another new talent night here at the top chaotic science comedy cabaret night in London.
We’ve sourced five incredible acts, all new to Showoff, to join our merry community where anyone can do any kind of performance about any kind of science. They’re a mixture of new talent and experienced science communicators making their Showoff debut.
– ‘the seasonality of death’ (fun eh?)…about the times of the year and the times of the week when people are more likely to die (as well as the reasons behind such seasonality).
– I’ll be doing a spoken word poem called “This is your brain on…”
– I’ll be talking about about how volcanoes can both kick-start life on Earth, before spending the rest of their time trying to end it, the bastards. Expect supervolcanoes, nuclear weapons, North Korea and Prometheus to come into it all, somehow.
Abi Aspen – Meat engineer, with set details soon to follow.
Donal Vaughan – Donal is a multi-award winning Irish comedian who does science-based comedy all over the UK and Ireland. Covering many topics he specialises in the ‘Physics of Fatness’.
We’re also welcoming back a few old hands, rejoining the Showoff crew to hold the hands of our newbies.
– nanomaterials researcher, unicorn-botherer and television star
– King of Glasgow public engagement, salsa machine and science comedian
And of course they’ll be marshalled by grizzled science sergeant major, compere and comedian, Steve Cross
The gig is on Tuesday March 15th in the basement at the Star of Kings, London. Doors open 7pm and show starts at 7.30 sharp. These usually sell out (we keep the room small to make the gigs lovely) so do buy early to ensure a place!
TICKETS COME FROM HERE They are £6 plus booking fee (60p). If we don’t sell out there will be tickets on the door for £8 each.
