Bright Club Brussels
Bright Club is an evening of stand-up comedy, by researchers, for everyone. Bright Club started at University College London and has been gathering crowds in Britain for more than a few years now. Since 2015, Brussels has had its own science comedy night! Participants receive a short but intensive training by a professional comedian and then have three weeks to prepare a short comedy set about their work and life as a researcher. Expect an evening of scientifically sound humor, performed by scientists from different fields. Bright Clubs are held in English or Dutch.
