Together the Spoken Nerds create a celebration of science with comedy, songs, live experiments and unashamed geekiness. Since 2011 they’ve appeared in venues across the country, from sold-out shows at London’s Bloomsbury Theatre, Shakespeare’s Globe, Hammersmith Apollo, Theatre Royal Haymarket, British Library and Udderbelly on the South Bank, to Green Man and Latitude music festivals, TED and all the major UK science festivals. After their first successful tour in 2012 they returned to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013 with “Full Frontal Nerdity” before taking the show on a 10,000 seat tour of the UK. They’re back on the road in 2015, at the Edinburgh Fringe and an even bigger tour of the UK with new show “Just For Graphs”.
