What is FOTSN?

Festival of the Spoken Nerd is a comedy night for the insatiably sci-curious, hosted by musical comedian Helen Arney, stand-up mathematician Matt Parker, and Blue Peter science expert Steve Mould.

Whether you loved or loathed the school science lab, Festival of the Spoken Nerd is here to feed your brain, tickle your ribs and light your Bunsen burner. It's a celebration of science, comedy and unashamed geekiness, with live experiments, audience participation, and maybe some things that go BANG!

There's always time for questions at the end, and extra marks are given for showing your workings. Full Frontal Nerdity guaranteed!

  • "Harnesses comedy to highlight
    what is fun, and funny,
    about science"
    • NewScientist.com


  • "A riotously funny show about
    science brimming with
    unashamed geekery"
    • 4 stars, Three Weeks


  • "what a show about science should
    be; informative, but
    also human, vulnerable,
    and exceptionally witty"
    • 4 stars, Edinburgh Festivals
