Bright Club Manchester is the comedy club where researchers, from all fields and backgrounds, take to the stage to perform short stand-up comedy routines about their work.

Our next event Thursday 12 June: Big, small, new, old; ideas make the world go around and there will be plenty for you to think about, and laugh about, at this special event for Universities Week.

At The Deaf Institute on Thursday 12 June Dave Williams (regular MC for the Comedy Store) will be compereing a line up of some of the finest and funniest minds around:

Liz Granger, biowoman; James Sumner, historian of science; Charlotte Wildman, historian of everything; Emily Prestwood, energy investigator; Katie Steckles, multicoloured mathematician; and the atomic Matt Gunther.

We’ve also got the musical antics of Pyjama Party.

Tickets: £6 available in advance from and on the door.
