Great Scott, it’s back to Night of the Nerds! Yes, World Science Festival Brisbane’s delightfully dorky variety game show is back.
Comedian Mark Humphries will boldly go where no host has gone before as two all-star teams of scientists, tech heads and funny people face off in a series of challenges to lead their team to the ultimate nerdy triumph.
Keeping a watchful eye on proceedings will be our fact checker and ABC super nerd, Tegan Taylor. If anyone is going to be fast and loose with the truth, it better be funny. And let’s not forget the house superband, adding a touch of razzle-dazzle to the proceedings.
Come one, come all for a side-splitting night of warp speed chaos, and remember, the geek will inherit the earth!
