Bright Club
The thinking person's comedy night

Bright Club is the thinking person's comedy night, where UCL researchers become stand up comedians. Run by the UCL Public Engagement Unit, Bright Club aims to bring UCL researchers together with a new audience: 20-50 year olds who have no existing relationship with academia.

Our next live performances are on Friday 9 and Thursday 22 February 2018 at Stratford Circus. Book your tickets now!

Bright Club 2018

It's a great opportunity for UCL staff to get experience of sharing what they do with a friendly, informal audience. So that they're pitch-perfect on the night, presenters are trained in performance skills by experts in stand-up comedy.

Bright Club started in May 2009. Since then we've tackled subjects like London, Time, Light, Metal, Film, Crime and Sea, and we've received financial support from the  Science and Technology Facilities Council and The Wellcome Trust.


''Taking part in a Bright Club was an interesting experience: a really positive experience. I found it useful for both communicating my research and meeting colleagues at UCL".
