Cosmic Shambles LIVEA night of live science, comedy and music on tour across Aus and NZ in March & April 2017
Never experienced outside of the UK before, the celebrated sell-out UK gala nights pioneered by Robin Ince, is headed down under. Expect a captivating night showcasing the best of science, music and comedy.
Starring Robin Ince, Josie Long, Helen Czerski, Lucie Green, Matt Parker and many more local guests, (which you can see below), we’re bringing a series of one-night-only tasting menus of witty stand-up, fascinating scientific explorations and big name musicians to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Cosmic Shambles LIVE is a variety show that celebrates curiosity and reason, an explosion of science, comedy, music and general wonder, with a great sense of fun. In the tradition of Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People and Brian and Robin’s Christmas Compendium of Reason, this is a show that will make you laugh and make you think.
Each show will feature a unique line up of local stars joining our UK cast which features Robin Ince, Josie Long, Helen Czerski, Lucie Green and Matt Parker. Check below for local guests as they’re announced.
Make sure you’re on board for what is bound to be a series of nights like no other. Funky sounds! Nerdy wonders! Dazzling spreadsheets! Confused earthworms! And everything else besides.
Part proceeds from the show will be going to great charities like Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders).

The lineup at each show will be different but rest assured each one will be jam packed with brilliant scientists, comedians and musicians. We’ll be announcing new guests all the time in the run up to the shows and there’ll also be a few special surprises on the night…
