Bursting with enthusiasm, charm and 19th century wit, Ernest will take you on a verbal walking tour through his unbelievable life of science and adventure. Be warned, the front three rows might get wet … with knowledge!

Written and performed by Nic Sampson (writer for Funny Girls and star of The Brokenwood Mysteries).

Everyone Can Science is the perfect comic equation. Sampson + Rutherford = Absolute Hilarity. Or in layman’s terms: it’s bloody funny, go.” THEATRESCENES
