The Nerds are back! Join them as they prepare to tour the UK this Autumn with brand new show “You Can’t Polish A Nerd”.

Since last year, experiments guy 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 and played the Hammersmith Apollo with Professor Brian Cox.

Together they’ll be buffing up a veritable Periodic Table of new songs, science and spreadsheets that will tickle your ribs and light your Bunsen burner. Full Frontal Nerdity guaranteed!

**** “Fantastic and funny… you don’t need to be a ‘nerd’ to enjoy this show” Broadway Baby
**** “Gleefully geeky… impossible to resist, whatever your level of scientific knowledge” Edinburgh Reporter
***** ”The geeks have inherited the earth in a show that’s smart and funny” The Skinny
