A night of chaotic science comedy cabaret
Science Showoff came to Cambridge on 10 October 2016 for a night of laughing, learning and larking about. MC Steve Cross, science comedian and celebrity nerd, was joined by headliner Sarah Bennetto and some amazing new Cambridge science comedy talent tackling the big questions about life in research.
Researchers-come-comedians who took part included:
- Philipe Bujold
- Paul Kirk
- Dana Galili
- Sarah Madden
- Alisa Molotova (Franklin Lab)
- Stanley Strawbridge (Smith Lab)
- Heidi Solberg Økland
This event was part of Biology Week 2016 and raised money for Parkinson’s UK. The Institute provided science comedy training to all the researchers who took part from across the Graduate School of Life Sciences.
