Sara Pascoe
Edinburgh Award-nominated Sara Pascoe is a near-constant presence on television and radio, as one of the contestants on the current series of Taskmaster, on numerous panel shows, in great sitcoms like 2012 and W1A, or doing stand-up on Live at the Apollo. The Science Museum Comedy Club is excited to welcome this intelligent, passionate comedian.

Ella Al-Shamahi
Neanderthal specialist, paleoanthropologist, archaeologist and stand-up, Ella is also a National Geographic Explorer, a celebrated Ted talker and a regular feature on numerous Radio 4 series.

Jack is part of the curatorial team that looks after the Science Museum’s world-leading medical collection, and we work alongside him regularly. His passion for sharing our wonderful collection, along with his keen eye for fascinating humorous items, makes Jack a perfect fit for the Science Museum Comedy Club.

Needless to say, the Science Museum’s resident comedy team will also be serving up the mix of memorable demonstrations and witty science that you’ve come to expect from Punk Science. Book now and let the Science Museum Comedy Club infect you with a dose of highly stimulating hilarity.
