FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER a new night of science, cabaret, music and fun featuring the cream of Brighton talent, a couple of shipped-in celebs and all curated and MCed by science, hoedown and lipsyncing star Dr Jiggs Bowson. She’s exactly like the west end of Brighton; peerless. Prepare to leave with your tiny hearts broken by her whimsy and wickedness!
DJBCSF is a brand new event designed to represent the city it lives in, blending vintage chic, end-of-the-pier bawdiness and high camp but with one eye on the world-leading science and technology research happening in and around Brighton.
For our first ever gig we bring you these incredible acts:
Katie Ptasińska – Scientist by day and comedian by night, Katie is Poland’s answer to Tina Fey & she is on a personal mission to improve public perceptions of her experimental organism – yeast.
Dr Kayleigh Wardell – Prepare for the silliest and most hilarious explanation of human fertilisation you will ever see by genetics researcher and science communicator Kayleigh.
Oliver Assetts – Drag King Oliver Assets is the master of a million miserable faces. #ReluctantlySexy, his deadpan performance guarantees there won’t be a single dry seat in the house.
Alex Lathbridge – Cancer researcher Alex brings you Rapstract: All science communication will eventually hit a hip-hop singularity. Come and find out why.
Sam Lake – 2016’s South Coast Comedian of the Year (he’s banned from all other coasts), one-time Countdown contestant and Computer Science graduate (that counts as science, right?) Sam will bring you some gloriously geeky stand-up.
Dr Suzanne Harvey – Suzanne is a Biological Anthropologist interested in primate communication and social behaviour. An aspiring Dr Doolittle, she will be translating gibbon song into English in a bid to answer the burning question on everyone’s mind: Are gibbons really as monogamous as we’re led to believe?
Professor Kaos – Science magician and theatrical producer Prof. Kaos is a master of performing incredible science demonstrations all over the UK. This act is sure to be electrifying!
Professor (actually a professor) Sophie Scott – neuroscientist, brain wrangler and full on sexy science celebrity.
Steve Cross – The End-Of-Level boss of science comedy. A lover, not a fighter. The clever one from the unrivalled Masterpiece Bookshelf podcast. A world leader in naked mole rat fandom. Your secret crush.
