That’s what you get when you throw together mathematician, a Blue Peter scientist and a musical comedian.

This unique show for the fearlessly inquisitive, is a celebration of all things terrifically geek, with Helen Arney singing jaunty songs about the sun, science expert Steve Mould with his sound waves of fire, and Aussie Matt Parker wowing with his remarkable knack for probability.

Add to the mix stellar comedian Kent Valentine, and guest scientist Professor Andrea Sella who likes to blow things up, then you have a highly unusual night of variety for the insatiably sci-curious.

Even non-geeks will laugh.

After sell-out shows at the New Red Lion in Angel, and at the Bloomsbury Theatre in January, tonight’s is a last minute addition, promising to be “Bigger, Better and More Dangerous” as the theme goes.

We just call it explosive.
