✶✶✶✶✶ "Scientifically verifiable songs and statistically significant laughter … she delights the audience with her pitch-perfect humour … Hugely entertaining, clever comedy at its best"
– The Skinny
✶✶✶✶ "Lots of distinctive laughs … an intelligent mixture of her now trademark song, gags and science all bound up in a stylish package … Classy stuff"
"An all-round smartypants, Arney is on a one-woman, almost Renaissance-like mission to reunite her two passions of music and science … collage of geekily themed projections and songs … the confidence and clarity of Arney's performance (both spoken and sung) are exceptional. Comedy for your inner mathematician?"
– The Telegraph
✶✶✶✶ "Charming, witty, warm with great one-liners"
– The List
"If the show was peer-reviewed, it would get full marks."

The rumours are true… the Spoken Nerds are recording our first pilot for BBC Radio 4 Comedy on 26th April!
Unfortunately (fortunately?) all the tickets for the actual recording were snapped up within 24 hours of the announcement, but we’re doing 2 tryout nights in the week leading up to the big day.
22 April – Canal Cafe Theatre, Warwick Avenue – tickets
24 April – Camden People’s Theatre, Euston Square - tickets
Hope to see lots of London-based people there… and if all goes well and it gets broadcast, make sure you’re on my mailing list and I’ll let you know when you can hear it going out, and on the iPlayer afterwards!
Next week I’m hosting three big shows for BBC Live Events, in Portsmouth, Norwich and Royal Holloway. They complement the Stargazing Live BBC TV series from 6th to 8th January – if you’re in those areas take a look at the dates and how to get tickets here. I also wrote them a song, click on the image to the left for some sing-along astronomy.
Another new song for the BBC was on Radio 4 yesterday, in More Or Less, for their “Numbers of the Year” programme. If you’ve always wanted to receive the world’s biggest prime number for Christmas (who doesn’t?) you can download it for free here, or listen to the whole programme here.
You also might have caught a glimpse of me on Channel 4 on Christmas Eve, in a programme about the documentary… I mean sitcom… “The IT Crowd” by Graham Linehan. It’s only about 15 seconds of fame, but the whole programme is great and you can still see it on 4OD here.
One last thing! Our Full Frontal Nerdity tour starts in a couple of weeks and tickets are on sale. We’d love to see you at one of them – full listings below, and tickets available here.
