Festival of the Spoken Nerd




Festival of the Spoken Nerd is where sparkling wit meets fascinating science in a comedy night for the insatiably sci-curious. It's hosted by award-winning geek songstress Helen Arney, stand-up mathematician Matt Parker and BBC 1 science experiments guy Steve Mould.
It's a riotously funny celebration of science with comedy, songs, live experiments and unashamed geekiness. Sometimes the Spoken Nerds are joined by guest scientists and comedy headliners, and there's always time for questions at the end with extra marks for showing your workings.

Spoken Nerd has appeared at venues across the country. They've sold-out shows at London's Bloomsbury Theatre, Shakespeare's Globe, Hammersmith Apollo, Theatre Royal Haymarket and Udderbelly on the South Bank, plus at Green Man and Latitude music festivals, TED and the Edinburgh Fringe.
In 2013 they returned to the Bloomsbury Theatre with an all-new show Technobabble, as well as Brighton, Cambridge and Edinburgh Science Festivals and the British Science Festival in Newcastle.
After a successful first UK tour in 2012 they made a return visit to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013 and will be back on tour in early 2014.
