Who ARE the people who make the world like THIS? Who are the people making the roads and buildings and sewage pumps and hydrogen storage systems and breweries and tube networks and mobile phone chips and apps and even the quality control processes (but not the weapons because we have standards)?
That’s what Engineering Showoff is all about – meeting the people who make the modern world, in a pub, and listening to them be hilarious for 9 minutes each. It’s a chaotic comedy cabaret about engineering and amazing engineers.
At this special event where engineers become comedians for one night you’ll meet this incredible talent:
Anna Ploszajski – engineer
Aimi Elias – engineer
Philippa Jeffris – engineer
He-In Cheong – engineer
Gwenhivir Moon – engineer
Corina Kwami – engineer
Katie Creswell-Maynard – engineer
Steve Cross – comedian, non-engineer. Your MC for the night. Makes clever people funny for a living.
The gig is on Wednesday 7th December in the basement venue at the Star of Kings on York Way in London. That’s here. Doors open at 7pm and the gig starts at 7.30 sharp! Tickets cost £6 plus a 60p booking fee from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/380259. If we don’t sell out in advance tickets on the door will be £8. All your ticket money will be given to Engineers Without Borders to help with their work taking engineering to where it is needed the most!
