Bright Club Ireland

A variety night for lateral minds




Bright Club is a variety night for lateral minds, where researchers become comedians for a night! Each event features academics from science, humanities, and social science talking about their work alongside professional comedians and musicians. Originally pioneered in the UK, Bright Club came to Ireland in 2015 with events in Dublin, Galway, Cork, and Athlone. With comedy, music and more besides, Bright Club is the only variety night where you’ll furrow your brow before laughing your face off.

Bright Club is supported by Science Foundation Ireland. It has been covered by RTÉ, The Irish Times, Newstalk, TodayFM, and Silicon Republic.
