365 1/4 Days of Science – The Science of 2014

365 14 Days of Science 500x200

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 EdgeState 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.

I have the pleasure of being a part of this very special BrisScience event. If you like science, laughs and to learn a thing or two then this is an event you won’t want to miss!

365 14 Days of Science

You’re invited to an evening of science in the style of the great panel shows (think Good News Week and Spicks and Specks!), as BrisScience takes a lighter look at the top science stories of 2014 and the scientists behind them. It’s science as you’ve never seen it before, with this year’s panellists including world leading researchers, gifted comedians, and professional science communicators – all with a flair for the dramatic. Hosted by well-known figure of stage and science, Dr Joel Gilmore, you’ll be guaranteed a night of entertainment, competition and comedy – and perhaps even education!

Following the success of the 2014 The Storytelling of Science, featuring Tim Flannery and other guests, and the inaugural 2013 Science Comedy Debate, this is sure to be another sold out evening, so secure your tickets early!
