I am now a stand-up comedian

That’s something I never thought I would say – “I am a stand-up comedian”. Well, as of the evening of December 18th 2012, it’s true!

As an outreach veteran, I was convinced (rather easily) to take part in Bright Club Dundee. This was outreach like I have never experienced before. Not to worry though, training was provided beforehand, rehearsals were had, and despite my nerves on the night, I was happy with the results. Watch my debut performance below.

Bright Club Dundee is a public engagement opportunity like no other! Researchers are given training in the art of stand-up before being let loose on the public at regular stand-up shows. You need no previous experience to give it a go. You might be surprised by just how much fun it is.

Anyone interested in joining the exclusive list of Bright Club performers should contact Jon Urch (brightclubdundee@gmail.com). Alternatively, I am happy to put you in touch with the right people to make it happen. You could also go along to a performance to see what it’s all about.
