Science Says! 2019

Science Nation

Science Says! is science with laughter added. Join us as Victoria’s brilliant scientists, gifted comedians and talented communicators use their wits and wittiness to uncover the top scientific discoveries of 2019 – and a few of the odder ones, too!

It’s an evening in the style of the great panel shows – think mixing Mock the WeekSpicks and Specks, and just a dash of QI. Last years’ shows saw physicists miming sticky saliva, professors donning hard hats, and biologists serenading the audience – all in the name of science.

Hosted once again by Dr Joel – scientist, comedian and co-host of Food Lab on SBS – you’ll be guaranteed a night of entertainment, competition and comedy – and education, too. So secure your tickets early and join us in November to find out what Science Says!


Competing in Melbourne for all the glory science has to offer is: reproductive biologist, science communicator and prospective Ig Nobel laureate, Dr Kiri Beilby; theoretical physicist and jazz pianist manqué, Prof Jared Cole; biomedical engineer who believes diamonds really are a girl’s best friend, Dr Kate Fox; science educator, boardgame designer and comedian, Tom Lang; engineer of novel materials, writer of non/fiction and bow tie enthusiast, Dr Mohammad Taha; and immuno-virologist, turning being curious into a profession and wannabe artist, Dr Carolien van de Sandt; with another participant to be announced. This event will be hosted by scientist, comedian and TV personality, Dr Joel Gilmore.

Tickets: $10 (below), $15 at the door (cash only). Discounts apply to RSV members online (check emails from the RSV for your code).
