Comedy for Science! by Science Riot

July 7, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Scientists doing comedy? You must be joking.

Established in 2016, Science Riot is an event series adapted from a wildly successful UK program billed as “a thinking person’s comedy night.” STEM professions are thrown on stage to perform after completing a crash course in standup comedy! Come show your support for local experts performing standup for their first time ever.

This event is provided in partnership with the March for Science advocacy summit – feel free to join us for a social hour before the show and find out how you can become a voice for science! The Science / Government Institutions and Society (S/GNS) Summit is national conference that empowers those committed to championing evidence-based policy and science for the common good. Scientists and science-enthusiasts are welcome to register for the conference here (not required for show entry): https://www.marchforscience.com/summit-about

Want to see great amateur comedy and learn something new in the process? Get your tickets for our next show at the Field Museum!
