Geeks rejoice for the Festival of the Spoken Nerd

Posted at 2:30 pm, February 2, 2012 in Arts & Entertainment

Nerd’s the word at this comedy night for the insatiably sci-curious. Festival of the Spoken Nerd, hosted by musical comedian Helen Arney, stand-up mathematician Matt Parker and Blue Peter science expert Steve Mould straddles the worlds of comedy and science, entertaining their audience with a mixture of stand-up, songs and science experiments. What’s more, the regular hosts are often joined by a guest scientist and comedy headliner with previous guests including comedian Robin Ince, space scientist Lucy Green and roboticist Heather Knight, so expect a high standard. Following a run of sold-out shows last year, the super geeky triumvirate light up the Haymarket Theatre Royal on February 2 for a night of unapologetically intelligent comedy.
