Opportunity to engage new audiences with your research!

Hi all,

Please see below for details of a nice opportunity to engage new audiences with your research:

“If you’d like to disseminate your research in an unique and innovative way, perhaps it’s time you tried your hand at stand-up comedy with Bright Club.

Each event is compèred by a professional comedian then academics and researchers take the mic to talk about their subject in a light-hearted and entertaining way. Bright Club was born from a collaboration between UCL, One Green Firework and music promoters Duel in the Deep before spreading across the country.

After two and a half sell-out years on the Newcastle comedy scene, Bright Club Newcastle returns to The Stand on 26 November at 8.00pm, and organisers The Centre for Life in collaboration with Newcastle and Northumbria Universities are offering the opportunity for academics/researchers from the north east to perform. Training is given to help tailor your material for an audience of comedy enthusiasts.

This training will take place on Monday 21st October, 12.00-14.00pm at The Centre for Life and will be run by professional comedian Susan Morrison and science communicator (and previous Bright Club act) Elin Roberts. There will be other opportunities to rehearse and fine tune your set, including a 2 hour rehearsal on the day of the event itself.
