Festival of the Spoken Nerd + Austentatious

July 22, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

£9.5 – £13

For one night only, we bring together Regency-themed Improv and Science Comedy to create the Edinburgh Fringe Preview to end all Edinburgh Fringe Previews!

AUSTENTATIOUS
***** “Joyously performed” (The Times)
Be it ‘Mansfield Shark’, ‘Darcy & Hutch’ or ‘I know what you did last season’, no two shows are ever the same. A seasoned cast presents an eloquent, irreverent, 100% improvised take on the works of Britain’s best-loved novelist. Performed in period costume with live musical accompaniment.

FESTIVAL OF THE SPOKEN NERD: JUST FOR GRAPHS
**** “Great, funny, clever… even the heckles at this terrific show are smart” (The Scotsman)
The science comedy phenomenon is back with a new show, and this time they’re off the chart. Join stand-up mathematician Matt Parker, experiments maestro Steve ‘Danger’ Mould and geek songstress Helen Arney for graph-a-minute fun on an unprecedented linear scale.

With special guest…
PROFESSOR ELEMENTAL
“Fast and fluid… loveably bonkers” (Londonist)
Bridging the gap between literary stylings of the 1800s and twentieth century science we have Victorian-themed chap-hop from the mad Professor and his Fighting Trousers.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to venue licensing restrictions, only over 18s are permitted in this venue.
