Science & Technology Comedy Night

 Friday 8th October 2021 (evening)

 The Old Con Club (TBC), Great Malvern, WR14 2AY

Abstract: We outline an innovative experiment to lighten the mood. Apparatus: Some science eggheads, computer nerds and engineering geeks (together referred to as boffins [1]), a stage, a microphone, some props, a digital projector, some drink and an adult audience. Method: Allow the boffins to speak consecutively into the microphone from the stage using the digital projector and their props to amuse the audience.  Results: Laughter out loud and consumption of drink.  Conclusion: Science and technology comedy is not an oxymoron.  References: [1] The Times, 15 Sept. 1945 referring to a band of scientific men who performed their wartime wonders at Malvern.
