Festival of the Spoken Nerd: TECHNOBABBLE
16 & 17 April, Bloomsbury Theatre, 7.30pm
Extra accessible show, due to popular demand:
18 April, 8pm - with Stagetext, live speech-to-text transcription
Prepare to switch yourselves off and on again as Festival of the Spoken Nerd return to the Bloomsbury Theatre with another great new show this April.
This time stand-up mathematician Matt Parker, experiments guy Steve Mould and geek songstress Helen Arney will be delving deep inside the computer - and then attempting to put it back together afterwards.
Hold on to your bits for a comedy night that covers the whole ZX Spectrum from computers made of dominoes to the future of artificial intelligence plus special guests, interactive experiments and a few extra surprises.
Whether you're a Mac, a PC, or just a human being, don't miss another sellout night of science and silliness.
Festival of the Spoken Nerd is now more accessible! The final show of this run incorporates Stagetext, a live speech-to-text transcription on stage that gives deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people access to what the Spoken Nerds are saying on stage. Book "Stagetext" concession on 18th April for a discount ticket.
