Returning to The Stand comedy club on the 15th of November at 8.30pm, Bright Club is offering academics/researchers from the North East the chance to get on stage and have their say, exploring your research through humour, stories and bad puns. This is an incredible way to get your work out there, as well as improve your skills.
Each event is compèred by a professional comedian, and subjects cover everything from pigs and language, to booze and geophysics.
Training is given to help tailor your material to a comedy audience. This will take place on the 1st of November, 12.00-3.00pm at the Centre for Life with further opportunities to rehearse and fine-tune your set before the show.
