For the past five and a half years I have been organising a public science series called BrisScience. In two weeks (13th of October) BrisScience is holding a very special event: a science-based comedy panel show (think along the lines of Good News Week or Spicks and Specks). Usually I MC BrisScience events, but this time I will actually be a part of the fun as I’m one of the panelists competing for scientific glory.
If you’re worried that it’s going to be a train wreck because you think I’m as funny as a door stop, don’t be; professional comedians on both teams to ensure you have plenty of laughs. If you’re concerned that the scientific competency will be quite low, don’t be; world-leading scientists will be each team.
The event is on the 13th of October from 7:30-9pm (doors open at 7pm) at The Edge, State Library of Queensland, South Brisbane. Tickets are $15 and available online here. More info, including a list of everyone participating, can be found at www.brisscience.org.
