Thinking that she’d left her geek past behind after graduating in Physics from Imperial College, Helen proved herself wrong when she turned to writing stand-up and songs inspired by science. Since touring the UK in Uncaged Monkeys with Robin Ince and Brian Cox, she’s appeared on Stewart Lee’s Alternative Comedy Experience on Comedy Central, smashed a wine glass with her voice live on Blue Peter and serenaded Jon Snow on Channel 4 News. As the UK’s premiere geek songstress she’s performed everywhere from the Edinburgh Fringe and Hammersmith Apollo to CERN in Geneva and Google’s head office in California. Helen has also presented science shows on BBC2 Coast, Discovery Channel’s Outrageous Acts Of Science and BBC Radio4. She’s currently working on full-length musical theatre projects and has filled several notebooks with rhymes for “Uranus”.
