Preview: Bright Club @ Bloomsbury Theatre

Not quite sure how it happened, but we forgot to include the biggest, brightest, brainiest show in town in our last Week in Geek roundup. Bright Club – the variety show that combines academics with stand-up comedians – returns to the Bloomsbury Theatre this Friday for an evening of cerebral hilarity.

This time round, the theme is STARS, and the line-up includes guests who capture both meanings of that word.

The Professionals

  • Lloyd Langford – the evening's compere, from BBC TV’s Ask Rhod Gilbert
  • Lucy Porter – The joke machine from Mock the Week and many other shows
  • Helen Keen – Who lives for jokes and space exploration
  • Colin Hazel – The king of the hilarious singalong
  • Gavin Osborn – Turning guitars into laughs

The Researchers

  • Dr Lucie Green – Solar physicist, award winner and star of The Sky At Night
  • Jen Gupta – Astrophysicist and host of the Jodcast
  • Sheila Kanani – Who looks for life on Saturn’s moons
  • Sarah Dhanjal – Hero-worshipping archaeologist
  • Dr Nic Canty – Expert on publishing celebrity tell-all books
  • Dr Jason Dittmer – Geographer who brings the “…and Stripes” to this night of Stars
  • Dr James Kneale – Geographer of the worlds of Science Fiction
  • Dr Martin Austwick – Social Physicist
The event takes place on Friday 11 November from 7.30pm. Tickets are £8. Buy here.
