Following a completely sold out performance at Somerset House with “What Humans Can Learn From Naked Mole Rats” (part of the Utopia Season), naked mole rat lover Steve Cross and friends come to the Star of Kings for a night celebrating the best animal in the world.
Tonight you’ll meet some of the UK’s biggest naked mole rat experts and obsessives, with their amazing stories of letting sabre-toothed sausages into their lives. Expect cancer-dodging science, sweet potato recipes, and more.
The performers are:
Steve Cross – The comedian whose naked mole rat obession has taken him across Europe to meet loads of identical colonies of these basically identical personality-less animals.
Chris Faulkes – the daddy of naked mole rat breeding and science in the UK.
Sarah Cox – Sarah is a self-styled press officer for naked mole rats and has talked many an unsuspecting journalist into publicising the GREATEST ANIMAL EVER. She owns a hand-painted naked mole rat pillow.
Kelly-Anne Kelleher – Naked mole rat zookeeper and the person who brought popcorn into the naked mole rat world.
Charlotte Mykura – molecular biologist and naked mole rat fanatic.
Prof Karmadillo – Singer of science with a strong song about the sabre-toother sausage.
Steve Le Comber – Queen Mary, University of London’s top mathematician and modeller explores how naked mole rats can help us medically treat the results of human violence better.
