What's On From Slapstick to Brains, and back again Curated by UCL this night of entertainment explores comedy and performance, and investigates the neuroscience of humour and laughter, with comedians, performers and neuroscientists. Hosted by the incomparable Abigoliah Shauman, comedians including Ian Stone, Ramadeep Mungur and Howard Read will make us laugh, while neuroscientists Sophie Scott, Antonia Hamilton and Dwaynica Greaves find out what is going on in their heads, and in the audience’s brains. Impressionist Duncan Wisbey (from BBC Radio 4's Dead Ringers) will explore what makes voices funny, and the musician Jonny Best will show how a piano accompaniment can help the punchlines land in a silent movie. The evening will finish with a Q&A with the performers, joined by Told by an Idiot's Paul Hunter, and a chance to pick some comedy brains. Performance Date and Tickets Wednesday 27th March 2024 Bloomsbury Theatre, London All profits will be going to Told by an Idiot to help fund our work, which enables us to take theatre and comedy into communities that get little access to theatre.
