Full Frontal Nerdity - Festival of the Spoken Nerd's New show! 

Fresh from the Edinburgh Fringe, the sell-out comedy phenomenon is back on tour with a brand new show for the insatiably sci-curious. Whether you loved or loathed the school science lab,

Festival of the Spoken Nerd

is here to feed your brain, tickle your ribs and light your Bunsen burner.

Stand-up mathematician Matt Parker (BBC2 Things You Need To Know) experiments maestro Steve Mould (BBC1 Britain's Brightest street scientist) and geeky songstress Helen Arney (BBC Radio4 Infinite Monkey Cage) mix astonishing science with statistically significant comedy – and maybe some things that go BANG!

With over a million views on YouTube for their experiments, songs and stand-up, this is your chance to see three of the UK's best (and nerdiest) performers in an unforgettable night of comedy and curiosity. Full Frontal Nerdity guaranteed!

"A riotously funny show about science… brimming with unashamed geekery." Three Weeks
"and perky curiosity is in its DNA." Guardian
"Don't miss this gem of intelligent fun." STV Edinburgh
"Harnesses comedy to highlight what is fun – and funny – about science." NewScientist

    Very enjoyable - even if the spreadsheet obsession on display was a bit...disconcerting.

      Yup - the whole lot of us were there. I prefer R dataframes to spreadsheets :P

    I arrived late so I didn't manage to meet anyone (well, the person sitting next to me might just be one :-)). The show was great though! Love it!

    Hi, I'd love to go to this (it would be my first meetup) but as I work just outside of London I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it for 7pm - I noticed on the ticket booking website it says the show starts at 8pm, so will I be OK as long as I've arrived by then? Looking forward to meeting everyone!

    Are these allocated seats? Would like to come along and don't mind paying the extra but wouldn't want to sit on my own.

    • Paggy

      Will there be a group meeting before or after? I got a ticket but will be sitting solo for the show.

      January 20, 2014

    • Jobeda A.

      You can meet the group from 7pm for a drink at the theatre bar and also during intervals - we'll have a Meetup sign.
