Festival Of The Spoken Nerd (Phil McIntyre Entertainments by arrangement with Noel Gay)

By | Published on Saturday 24 August 2013

Whilst it might seem like this show is designed to cater to a rather niche audience, in reality, most people, deep down, have at least some interest in science. And this trio of enthusiasts were very successful at showing some truly fascinating aspects of a subject that so many people approach with a groan; whether it was lauding the wonders of spreadsheets, enlightening us on the world of binary, or simply making a tornado of fire with a waste paper bin and some lighter fluid, all experiments and presentations were performed in slick, engaging, yet still humorous fashion. It was indisputably informative as well, so the show felt like it served a real purpose, as opposed to just wowing the crowd for the sake of it.

Assembly George Square, until 25 Aug, 6.10pm.
