You Can’t Polish A Nerd pre-order

Festival of the Spoken Nerd have filmed their latest show packed full of science, songs and spherical geometry – and you can be among the first to own it on DVD, download and floppy disk. Yes. We really mean it.


Since their last UK tour, experiments maestro Steve Mould, geek songstress Helen Arney and stand-up mathematician Matt Parker have featured on BBC2’s QI, created a genuinely “experimental” comedy show for BBC Radio 4, played the Hammersmith Apollo with Robin Ince and Professor Brian Cox and the Royal Albert Hall with astronaut Commander Chris Hadfield.

Now they’ve committed their new science comedy spectacular “You Can’t Polish A Nerd” to a digital versatile format over two nights in London. Don’t miss this ‘resplendently geeky trio’ (The Times) as they put the “oooh” into zoology, the “fun” into fundamental theorem of calculus and the “recursion” into recursion in the ultimate show for nerds and non-nerds.
