✶✶✶✶✶ "Scientifically verifiable songs and statistically significant laughter … she delights the audience with her pitch-perfect humour … Hugely entertaining, clever comedy at its best"
– The Skinny
✶✶✶✶ "Lots of distinctive laughs … an intelligent mixture of her now trademark song, gags and science all bound up in a stylish package … Classy stuff"
"An all-round smartypants, Arney is on a one-woman, almost Renaissance-like mission to reunite her two passions of music and science … collage of geekily themed projections and songs … the confidence and clarity of Arney's performance (both spoken and sung) are exceptional. Comedy for your inner mathematician?"

In case you missed it (you would only have had to blink a few times) here’s my *new* *updated* version of Tom Lehrer’s “Elements” as seen on Channel 4 News last night. I’m still waiting for the IUPAC to actually name elements 113, 115, 117 and 118 before I can truly finish the song, but let’s call this New Version 1.0 for now.
In other news, I helped the Royal Institution Christmas Lecture smash a glass on TV (yet again) but have no fear if you missed it, you can see the lectures here with the glass-smash around 42 minutes, or watch my live stage version from “Full Frontal Nerdity” where I sing my little heart out here.
Also there’s an epic sale on at the Festival of the Spoken Nerd shop right now… everything is in multiples of pi pounds, from t-shirts to totes and tea towels, so you can pick up a bargain from just £3.14 if you are quick…
Finally, a childhood dream has been realised! I did a smashing bit of science live on Blue Peter last Thursday – click the image on the left to watch it happen.
For more updates on what I’m doing right now, take a look at my latest Newsletter here. There’s new videos from my piece about Dark Matter for BBC2 Coast, free songs to download, and a tonne of tour dates with our new “Just For Graphs” show all around the UK.
We’re about a quarter of the way through the tour now, and you’ll be gutted if you miss out on four types of fire, big spectacular musical numbers and an “electrifying” live experiment that involves the whole audience.
