Episode 2: Bright Club: Outright hilarious outreach
Have you heard the one about university lecturers and researchers doing stand-up? This podcast looks at how academic minutiae can be a vehicle not only for gut-busting laughter but a strategy for public engagement. Bright Club, a self-styled ‘thinking person’s variety night’ started first and foremost as a comedy night – but with one twist – the comedians were also university researchers. Bright Club co-founder Steve Cross and comedians Alex Hall, Chiara Ambrosio, and Sarah Wiseman show us what’s so funny about academic research.
