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.
