Review: Bright Club ‘Stars’, The Bloomsbury Theatre, London

Image of Stars: Bright ClubBright Club is one of the most original and creative shows at the moment in both the comedy and academic world! The concept was pioneered by UCL and has grown all over the UK and is even spreading across the world! University professors and researchers, namely UCL (although there was one non-UCLer on the bill tonight) performed stand-up comedy about their field of interest along with other top comedians, including Lucy Porter. Each Bright Club show is themed, tonight it was themed on ‘Stars’, which meant that, amongst a variety of academic disciplines, there were lots of physicists, geographers…and even an archaeologist on the bill.
