An unlikely bond of science and comedy in this YPlan exclusive event
Why did the neuron get in trouble? Because it had trouble controlling its impulses. See? Science can be funny. And we're not even real comedians. Baba Brinkman, on the other hand, is. The Fringe First winner and science rapper (yes, you read that correctly) has teamed up with his neuroscientist wifey Dr Heather Berlin to explore the brain basis of improvisation. What's happening under the hood when someone improvises? And does anything actually rhyme with Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex? Receiving vast swathes of critical acclaim, this show is as funny as it is clever, covering freestyle experimentation, scientific findings and audience interaction. And with a free Baba Drinkman cocktail included (Bulldog Gin, allotment vegetable sugars, citric acids, MRI scan garnish), now's the time to grab your goggles and lab coat and get involved. Doors open at 7pm. Show starts at 7.30pm. Includes a free cocktail. No latecomers accepted.
"If you ever wondered what it would be like if Eminem rapped about the brain, catch Baba Brinkman freestyling about neuroscience with his wife Heather Berlin. Conclusive proof that it is possible to be funny and clever."
