Join Alex Lathbridge, host of the Science Museum's Large Standup Collider, as he brings you a special night of nerdy comedy.

From baking with chemicals to the wacky events involved in heart transplants, he's curated a lineup of brilliantly funny talent for Science Showoff on the 14th of November.

Here's who to expect:

Vivian Tong is a full-time baker: she bakes zirconium by day and cake by night. In ‘Baking with Zirconium’, she’ll be exploring (somewhat tenuous) similarities between baking cake and baking metal

Rohin Francis — To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the heart transplant, Dr Rohin Francis is offering one lucky Showoff attendee a free transplant (replacement heart not included)

Shalaka Kurup — What’s worse than being subjected to a conversation with an engineer? Giving one some wine, a stage and nine minutes to rant about being single. We apologise in advance

Nidhi Gupta is a doctor, professional filmmaker, entrepreneur and mountain trekker. In 'Trust me, I'm not a TV doctor', Nidhi will explore the impact of art imitating life, imitating art and how the film and television depiction of medicine has altered perceptions and expectations and even the language of modern day medicine

Ana Gomez Ramirez, a biochemical scientist, will take us through a brief analysis of some of the most common stereotypes about scientists and challenge their validity

Lorit Dror is a Human Evolution and Behaviour MSc Student. Over the course of nine minutes learn more about the human species, but also the pros and cons of being an anthropologist

Plus more from Shivani Dave and Khalid Abdul Jabbar

Tickets are £6.60 in advance or £8 cash on the door.

Doors are 7pm for a 7.30 start.
