Festival of the Spoken Nerd: You Can't Polish a Ne

Festival of the Spoken Nerd: You Can't Polish a Ne


The Nerds are back with a brand new UK tour this Autumn “You Can’t Polish A Nerd”.
Since their last tour, 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!
“Charm and perky curiosity is in its DNA”
**** "Great, funny, clever… even the heckles at this terrific show are smart"
 (The Scotsman)
**** “The geeks have inherited the earth in a show that's smart and funny”
(The Skinny)
