Bright Club Manchester is the comedy club where researchers, from all fields and backgrounds, take to the stage to perform short stand-up comedy routines about their work. Why? Because it’s fun, interesting, and genuinely useful. Comedy and research have a lot in common.
Most of our performers have no experience of doing stand-up comedy, or haven’t even considered it before, but that does not matter. We provide training and support and a transformation occurs.
We don’t discriminate by subject, experience or fame: we just pick brilliant people, telling jokes and funny stories about what they know best to an attractive and intelligent audience!
Bright club started in London, and Manchester was the first off shoot. It has since turned up in many cities across the UK and even made it to Australia.
