– 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?"

Some lovely, exciting news – I am finally far enough out of the mainstream to be an Alternative Comedian!
On 11th July I’ll be recording a set at Edinburgh’s Stand comedy club for Stewart Lee’s Alternative Comedy Experience. It’ll go out on Comedy Central, I’m not sure when, but some time this year… so look out on your digital boxes for some supernerdy and science-inspired musical comedy from me.
Until then, you make make do with one of my songs on mega YouTube channel Numberphile, recorded with the help of Spoken Nerd’s stand-up mathematician, Matt Parker.
It went out as part of YouTube Comedy Week and also on Wagner’s birthday, which is especially suitable because it’s the most epic singalong you will ever attempt – IT’S THE GOOGOLPLEX!
Some news for today… if you’re listening to 5 live between 3pm and 4pm today you’ll hear me and biologist/author/fellow science cheerleader Adam Rutherford on Richard Bacon’s afternoon show. We’re discussing this week’s science news and taking questions from the public – tune in here or listen again for the next 7 days on the same link.
Also, if you’re in the US or Canada, you can finally see my Discovery Channel show where we look at the science behind crazy YouTube stunts… in the UK it’s called You Have Been Warned, but in the US they call it Outrageous Acts of Science - ha, crazy Americans! It’s on Saturday nights at 10pm on the Science Channel.
