Bright Club – science comedy from the Wellcome Genome Campus

Biology and medicine researchers become comedians for one night only.


Wed 25th Nov, 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm

The Wellcome Genome Campus is home to some of the world’s best researchers studying the basics of life, disease and humanity at a molecular level. Tonight they’ll join some scientists friends to put aside their microscopes, computers, robots and equipment for one night to tell you jokes about their work.

The show will be hosted by comedy veteran Steve Cross, who has MCed hundreds of comedy shows of all kinds across the world, and who has trained these brave brainiacs to take to the stage. I say stage, they’ll be on a videolink from their own homes.

Tonight’s performers are:

Elo Madissoon

Elisa Clemente

Jonathan Cairns

Simona Della Valle

and more!
