Dr Karl and Night of the Nerds

CONCERT HALL QPAC

Summary

It’s World Science Festival Brisbane’s very own – and very nerdy – variety show! Hosted by satirist Mark Humphries, the big night will kick off with a big bang as Dr Karl shares his latest and greatest moments in science.

An all-star band (featuring Clare Bowditch, Regurgitator’s Seja Vogel and Screamfeeder’s Kellie Lloyd) is all set to rock as Bachelor Matt Agnew, Academic Margaret Sheil and comedian Lawrence Leung compete for the title of ultimate nerd. What is the 10th decimal place of Pi? Who was the best captain of the Starship Enterprise? And exactly how long is a piece of string? Strap yourself in for some seriously nerdy fun!
