Ever wondered what goes on in the University of St Andrews? Bright Club brings current research to the stand-up comedy scene.

Bright Club is the place where public engagement and stand-up comedy collide. Academics and researchers - most of whom have never done comedy before - take to the stage to perform an 8 minute routine about their area of expertise. Following successes in Edinburgh, Dundee and other cities around the country, Bright Club is coming to St Andrews.

Bright Club St Andrews I: Introducktion - 26/02/2014

Apologies for the delay in updating the site- academic life continues after Bright Club and I've been testing most days. However I now have a break, and so I shall give you updates!

Our first Bright Club St Andrews event was a resounding success! We filled the room and I think we made a few friends and fans. We're already preparing for the next one, so keep April 30th open, folks!

Here's some of the videos from the night:

Lewis Dean - A Primatologist Monkeying Around

Ana Navarrete - Brain Maniac

Suzanne McEndoo - Quantum Zoo

Mike Corr - The Fluorine Funster

Becky Boulton - Feminism with a Sting in its Tail

Thank you again to the Wellcome Trust for being lovely and giving us money to play with. Until next time Bright Lovers, stay classy St Andrews!
