What is Festival of the Spoken Nerd?


Festival of the Spoken Nerd is the science comedy phenomenon that will feed your brain, tickle your ribs and light your Bunsen burner. Full Frontal Nerdity guaranteed!

Stand-up mathematician Matt Parker (Discovery Channel You Have Been Warned, Numberphile), experiments maestro Steve Mould (ITV1 I Never Knew That About Britain, BBC1 Britain’s Brightest) and geek songstress Helen Arney (BBC2 Coast, Comedy Central Stewart Lee’s Alternative Comedy Experience) mix astonishing science with statistically significant comedy, plus experiments that electrify their audiences – sometimes literally. Here’s what people are saying about their live shows.

Since their smash hit tour show Full Frontal Nerdity the Nerds have filmed their first DVD and download (available now) 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 in Las Vegas and New York, at Shakespeare’s Globe, Hammersmith Apollo with Robin Ince and Brian Cox, The British Library, TED, Udderbelly and Latitude Festival.

In 2015 they toured the Edinburgh Fringe and across the UK to 15,000 people with their new show Just For Graphs, and their plans for 2016 are also Off The Chart! Join their mailing list below for big news soon.
