The Levitating Hamster (and Other Definitely True Stories From Science)

Science communicator and host of PubSci, Richard Marshall presents a one-man show about the weird and wonderful stories that sometimes make science stranger than fiction. With science as the warp and imagination as the weft, Richard weaves a narrative to make us laugh and make us think (then make us laugh again). In the space between a science talk and a stand-up comedy show, one man and his powerpoint pick at the loose threads of science to see where they lead us... Doors 6:30 / Show 7pm

By day he is a science communicator, event producer and event host who has been programming and hosting London's PubSci (Science in the Pub) talks for seven years.

He recently worked with TikTok and the Royal Institution to create an industry event for some of the biggest science outreach centres in the UK.
