Comedy, Science, Music, Random Facts – join Robin Ince and Josie Long for Cosmic Shambles LIVE!


With only a few weeks to go before the sell-out UK show reaches Australia, Cosmic Shambles LIVE is thrilled to announce the first local acts to join a cast headed by the co-host of The Infinite Monkey Cage and self-described “interested idiot” Robin Ince.

Science communicator Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, comic Peter Berner, and adventurer Tim Jarvis will feature in the Sydney show on 28 March. In Melbourne on 1 April, indie musicians Killing Heidi, comedian and self-confessed geek Lawrence Leung, and astrophysicist Dr Katie Mack will share the stage. For the final tour stop in Perth on 13 April, folk group Simone and Girlfunkle, and “spray on skin” genius Prof. Fiona Wood will add to the organised chaos that is Cosmic Shambles LIVE. Oh, and there will be more local guests announced in the lead up to the shows!

In addition to multiple award-winning science comedian Robin Ince, the UK cast includes bubble physicist (which is a real thing) and BBC Presenter Dr Helen Czerski, “stand-up mathematician” Matt Parker, solar scientist Prof. Lucie Green, and comedian Josie Long.

It will be dynamic, it will be intelligent, it will be a little bit crazy, and it will be unlike any other show you have seen.

From reviews of Robin Ince’s UK shows:

  • “No other gig has ever started with chatter about gravitational waves and ended with waves of 1980s nostalgia”
    UK Evening Standard
  • “an eclectic assortment of mini-lectures and erudite amusements”
    Telegraph UK
