Award-winning comedian and popular-science writer Helen Keen uncovers the astounding truths behind the world's most popular fantasy television show, answering questions such as Do dragons actually exist? How does wildfire win wars? Why are scientists working on real 'warging'? Helen sifts fact from fantasy and reveals a world more fantastical than Daenerys Targaryen's wildest dreams. A myth-busting, fun-filled expedition that is perfect for GoT fans. It's time to see the Seven Kingdoms as you’ve never seen them before.
Helen Keen is a writer and performer whose work blends comedy with science, history and a quirky sense of discovery. Her first solo stand up comedy show It Is Rocket Science has toured the UK and Europe, and ultimately launched 3 cult series of her original and critically lauded space comedy on BBC Radio 4. After being appointed the first Comedian in Residence at Newcastle University's Centre for Life Science Village she compered the first ever live comedy night at CERN, ‘Large Hadron Comedy’, before joining the Stargazing Live live roadshow as a comedian & history of space travel expert. Helen was a guest stand-up on the second TV series of The Alternative Comedy Experience (curated by Stewart Lee) on Comedy Central and a special guest StarTalk with Neil deGrasse Tyson. In 2015 she was appointed an Innovation Fellow by WIRED magazine. Her first popular science book The Science of Game of Thrones is in shops now, and her Radio 4 series Big Problems With Helen Keen returns to the airwaves later this year.
