Due to overwhelming demand, The STEAM Room is bringing an encore performance of their sold out night of science and comedy!

The Sydney Comedy Festival is proud to present, The STEAM Room: A Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Maths (STEAM) themed comedy night!

Our crack-team of scientists, headlined by legendary Science-Daddy to us all, Dr Karl, have been in comedy training over the past months to turn their research into stand-up sets! Explore the science behind spider orgies, hydroponic lettuce start-ups, and collecting bat poo from around the world – nothing is off limits! They will share the stage with some of Sydney’s hottest comedians, as they explore the hilarious wonders of science!
