Nerd Nite London – Wednesday 21st March – Backyard Comedy Club

Nerd Nite is like a series of TED talks, but with chips and drinks. 3 speakers on the night come and educate you on a topic they know way too much about, whilst you sit back, relax and cram some more detail into that tiny mind of yours. Evidence based entertainment, in a bar. Pharrell would surely approve. 

7.30pm-10.30pm, £6-£7.50

Backyard Comedy Club, 231 Cambridge Heath Road, E2 0EL
