✶✶✶✶✶ "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?"

Some news for today… if you’re listening to 5 live between 3pm and 4pm today you’ll hear me and biologist/author/fellow science cheerleader Adam Rutherford on Richard Bacon’s afternoon show. We’re discussing this week’s science news and taking questions from the public – tune in here or listen again for the next 7 days on the same link.
Also, if you’re in the US or Canada, you can finally see my Discovery Channel show where we look at the science behind crazy YouTube stunts… in the UK it’s called You Have Been Warned, but in the US they call it Outrageous Acts of Science - ha, crazy Americans! It’s on Saturday nights at 10pm on the Science Channel.
During April I spent a couple of fun*-filled weekends creating a showreel – click here to take a look!
It has a whole heap of TV, radio, voiceover, youtube and live stuff that I’ve done over the last few years. There’s everything from a BBC 2 series about computers to a Channel 4 piece about how I celebrate christmas, a science-comedy feature for Norwegian TV, some funny stuff I did on Radio 3, and my voice in a Tim Key comedy documentary about famous first lines for Radio 4. Oh, and Spoken Nerd live on stage at the Hammermsith Apollo
Turns out I’ve been pretty busy the last few years. Do take a look, and if you know of anyone in need of a geek songstress, live event host or science presenter please do pass it on!
