Do Not Adjust Your Stage (GBR)
In the Wunderkammer, DNAYS improvise scenes, stories and characters
inspired by Ted-style talks from academics and all round huge brains
with a Q&A with the audience. Neither they, nor the audience, have
seen the talks before – every show is unique.
The Wunderkammer is one of London’s most popular improv comedy nights,
selling out consecutive monthly shows since Spring 2014 in residencies
at the Natural History Museum and The Nursery Theatre. Previous speakers
have included a cell biologist from King’s, a bubble scientist from the
National Physical Laboratory, a Cornish hip-hop guru, philosophers, a
medieval linguist, a Cambridge astrophysicist, Government economist, a
military historian, and a Guinness World Record holder.
It has been performed internationally at the Union Hall in Brooklyn
