Presented by The International Centre for Life and hosted by science comedian Helen Keen

An evening of stand-up comedy performed by ASTC conference delegates.

You can, of course, come along and watch for an evening of entertainment and laughs, but if you would like to take part and think you can be funny about science on stage for nine minutes, please contact Ian Simmons. Think about this as a “Demo Hour” for science comedy. You can check out “Bright Club” on YouTube for an idea of the sort of things people have done in the United Kingdom if you would like some inspiration!
