The science comedy phenomenon, Festival of the Spoken Nerd, is back on the road and heading to the Wyvern Theatre with a brand new show and this time it’s off the chart. Join this “resplendently geeky trio” (The Times) as they Excel themselves with graph-a-minute fun on an unprecedented linear scale.
Just for Graphs will be packed with electrifying live experiments and statistically significant laughter but will “the Nerds” stay on-trend, or lose the plot completely? Experiments maestro Steve Mould (BBC1’s Britain’s Brightest) will perform stand-up based on data from the birth of his first child, geek songstress Helen Arney (BBC2’s Coast) sings an emotional tribute to the intrepid Philae lander, which travelled 4 billion miles only to run out of batteries on comet 67P, while Matt Parker (Discovery’s You Have Been Warned) will be “setting charts on fire” with the worlds greatest graph. Don’t miss them turning the audience into a live speaker cable, complete with retro Fax machine solo.
Since their last smash hit tour show Full Frontal Nerdity, Festival of the Spoken Nerd have filmed their first DVD and racked up over a million views on YouTube for their experiments, songs and stand-up. As well as sell out shows all over the UK, the Nerds have performed at Shakespeare’s Globe, Hammersmith Apollo (with Robin Ince and Brian Cox), The British Library, TED and this summer they will make their Las Vegas debut at James Randi’s ‘The Amaz!ng Meeting’.
Individually they’ve been busy too. Matt published his first book Things to Make and Do in the Fourth Dimension and presented on Discovery’sYou Have Been Warned and Channel 4’s Mating Season. Steve has appeared on The One Show to talk about the infamous Blue/Black (or was it White/Gold?) dress and his amazing beads (The Mould Effect) which have also featured on QI and in a peer reviewed journal of the Royal Society. Meanwhile, Helen has performed at CERN in Geneva and Google headquarters in California, and filmed another series of BBC2 Coast and Discovery’s You Have Been Warned.
Recommended age 14+ due to strong language and graph-ic material.
Festival of the Spoken Nerd will be at the Wyvern Theatre on Wed 4 November at 8pm, with tickets priced from £14.00.
