Every week, Scratch Paper is a smart, supportive open mic for informative comedy, research-inspired storytelling, and charismatic talks. This week, Caveat is celebrating the Underground Science Festival, to shine light on science and scientists that have been suppressed by sexism or racism. Join us!
In the spirit of exploring “intelligent nightlife,” we’re hosting an open mic like no other. Researchers, teachers, and comedians will share the stage to hone their sets in a room that GETS IT.
Are you a researcher or science writer who wants to work jokes into your upcoming piece? Are you a stand up comedian who wants to use history, science, or your other nerdy obsession to fuel your sets? Whether it’s comedy based in research or research with a little something extra, Scratch Paper will help you test out new material that offers audiences exciting insights into the world… before the punchline.
We’ll have old hands and new present, so no worries if it’s your first time! Even if you just want to come check it out from the audience, everyone will leave a little smarter (and a little drunker).
Sets will be kept to a strict 4 minutes limit. Sign ups open the Monday beforehand and are announced on our Facebook page. Missed the sign up window? We save room for drop-ins!
