About Bright Club Manchester: DNA

Join us for a night of standup comedy you won't forget. This month, our eccentric experts tackle the topic of DNA.

Thorny ethical dilemmas? Biological misdemeanours? The inevitable chicken uprising? We've got it all, comedy is in our DNA.*

Bright Club Manchester is the comedy club where researchers and academics, from all fields and backgrounds, take to the stage to perform short stand-up comedy routines about their work. Why? Because it’s fun, interesting, and genuinely useful in the continued pursuit of knowledge.

Most of our performers have no experience doing stand-up comedy or haven’t even considered it before, but that does not matter. We provide training and support and a transformation occurs.

Bright Club started in London in May 2009 by the brilliant Steve Cross and Miriam Miller. Manchester was the first offshoot event 12 months later in May 2010 and holds events several times a year. Bright Club Wales came shortly after in November 2010. It has since turned up in many cities across the UK and even made it to Australia.
