October 9: Calling all Bright Clubbers!
Bright Club is an evening of stand-up comedy by scientists. After five successful editions, we will host a sixth science comedy night in Brussels on the 9th of October.
After a short, yet intensive comedy training, you have three weeks to prepare an eight minute comedy set in English about your life and work in academia. On October 9th, you will perform alongside the other Bright Clubbers, comedians and a professional MC.

Step 8: Bathe in the adoration of the masses. Bright Club is not a competition. There is no jury and there will be no prizes to hand out. Instead, you’ll go home with a warm glow of confidence in your ability to communicate succinctly, to the point and above all with humour about your work.
