Brainiac Live! Tickets

Garrick Theatre

Fall in love with science thanks to the outrageous Brainiac Live!, an experiment-fuelled, explosive exercise in daredevilry based on the hit television programme. It runs at the Garrick Theatre for a strictly limited four weeks.

A beloved science-centric TV programme has been translated to the stage in glorious technicolour. Brainiac Live! is an explosive hour of experiments, facts and fun that runs at the Garrick Theatre for a limited four weeks from 31 July 2019.

The original TV show ran between 2003 - 2008 and was presented by Richard Hammond and then Vic Reeves. Brainiac Live! has delighted adults and children across the world since 2008. The larger-than-life show has headlined science festivals and garnered fans from Abu Dhabi, Australia and beyond. More than 400,000 people have so far seen this bonkers and brilliant display, which The Guardian summed up as, “Science Museum meets Top Gear”.

Much like the television show it spawned from, Brainiac Live! is a giddy exploration of the world of science with no shortage of hi-jinks. There are exploding dustbins, Airzooka, superpowered spinning chairs and a dash of Beyoncé to top it all off.

The show is directed by Andy Joyce, who also stars in the show along with science buffs Rik Warren and Maggie Frazer.

Whatever you do, don’t try this at home! See the mind-bending Brainiac Live! when it plays for just four weeks at the Garrick Theatre from 31 July 2019.
