Punk Science: Aliens

A rip-roaring ride through star systems, crop circles, UFOs, extraterrestrials and maybe a peek at the 1986 cult film. An explosive fusion of Edinburgh style stand-up and serious science lecture, Punk Science asks: is anybody out there? If so…How do we find them? What would they be like? Are they already here? Does anybody actually care? Punk Science finds out the answers in 60 minutes of action packed science experiments, music, audience voting, gags and demos.


The truth is out there, and now four nice boys from the Science Museum can prove it…

This October sees the launch of a new comedy night, Aliens a rip-roaring ride through star systems, crop circles, UFOs, extraterrestrials and maybe a peek at the 1986 cult film.

Aliens is brought to you by Punk Science, the resident troupe of stand-up comics at the Science Museum’s Dana Centre - the UK’s only venue for adults to experience contemporary science.

Aliens launches on Tuesday 18 October and is part of a season of Alien themed events, debates and comedy nights at the Dana Centre. The series is running in conjunction with the Science Museum’s new exhibition The Science of Aliens.

Punk Science – Aliens· Date: Tuesday 18th and Thursday 20th October· Time: 19.30 – 20.30, · Venue: The Science Museum’s Dana Centre, 165 Queens Gate, London, SW7 5HE· Tube: Gloucester Road· Tickets are FREE but must be pre-booked on: 020 7942 4040 or tickets@danacentre.org.uk

Known for explosive, mind-blowing and unadulterated stand-up comedy shows and performance about contemporary science, Punk Science has proved a huge hit with sell-out nights at the Dana Centre.

Punk Science has performed on a range of science topics including the science of gluttony, the global energy crisis and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and has received rave reviews from the media and public alike. Punk Science also makes its debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year with The Albert Einstein Experience.

“If aliens exist what do they look like? If we believe the movies, then they're scary and want to kill us. If we believe the crackpots then they’re lovely and want to love us. Punk Science aren't taking any chances and are ready to kiss them whilst holding a gun to their heads. But until Aliens do come, we're going to speculate about them.” Jon Milton, Punk Science.

Punk Science combines the talents of comedian Jon Milton, street artist Ben Samuels, actor Dan Hope and drummer Bradford Gross.
