The Nerds are back with a brand new tour this Autumn “You Can’t Polish A Nerd”.

Since their last tour, experiments guy Steve Mould, geek songstress Helen Arney and stand-up mathematician Matt Parker have featured on BBC2’s QI, created a genuinely “experimental” comedy show for BBC Radio 4 and played the Hammersmith Apollo with Professor Brian Cox. Don’t miss the “resplendently geeky trio” (The Times) as they put the “oooh” into zoology, the “fun” into fundamental theorem of calculus and the “recursion” into recursion.

Together they’ll be buffing up a veritable Periodic Table of new science, songs, and spreadsheets that will tickle your ribs and light your Bunsen burner. Full Frontal Nerdity guaranteed!
