I'm pleased to announce the next training session at Mill Lane Room 6 at 3pm on11th October.

The session should last an hour and it's not just a talk, we'll go through some actives on how to to make things funny and how comedy works, the ideas behind writing jokes and what goes in to a set a Bright Club . When you leave you should have everything to need to deliver a Bright Club set or add humour to your own talks. I will also be looking for some people to fill the slot for our upcoming Bright Club events, where we get academics/post docs/PhDs and undergrads to give 7-8 minute humorous talk on their work. (The next event is on the 1st November http://cambridge.brightclub.org/)

Please contact me on anh25 at cam.ac.uk if you can attend, taking part in the training results in no obligation to actually do an event so do come along and see what it is all about.

Ugly Animal Preservation Society

Thursday 19th September at The Portland Arms
Doors 7:30pm, Starts 8pm

The UGLY ANIMAL PRESERVATION SOCIETY is a comedy night with a conservation twist.

It is dedicated to raising the profile of some of Mother Nature's more aesthetically challenged children. The panda gets too much attention.

Our society needs a mascot, one to rival the cute and cuddly emblems of many charities and organisations. And so I have gathered a terrific line up of comedians who will each champion a different ugly endangered species and at the end of the evening the audience shall vote for what will become our society's symbol. It is going to be a great night!

Comedy from Simon Watt, Sarah Bennetto, Punk Science, Andrew Holding, Suzi Ruffell, Iszi Lawrence & more

Tickets are available on the door.
