How fun is it to be a researcher? The correct answer is great fun! Curiosum is testing a new approach to talking about research, namely through stand-up comedy. The target groups are curious young people and adults and the stand-up comedy event is held in English.
Five brave researchers from Umeå University and SLU in Umeå receive help from Bright Club and St. Andrews University in Scotland to perform stand-up comedy where they tell engaging stories about their research and life as a researcher. The event is moderated by comedian and actress Monica Lindgren who also warms up the audience.
The stand-up duration is about 1,5 hours. If the restrictions allow, we will have a small pre-booked audience on site (35 people). Tickets will be released on 13 September and you will find the booking link on this web page.
The event can also be followed digitally at Youtube, starting at 14.00
