“The one-man venn diagram intersection of maths, pop and comedy returns. In the follow-up to his award-winning debut BORN TO SUM (Best Stand-up, Swindon Fringe 2018) he once again casts a mathematical eye across popular culture and wonders whether there is a place for all this pedantry in a world seemingly going to hell in a handcart. Expect songs, mathematics, fiendish wordplay and weapons-grade pedantry. If the devil is in the detail, he is Lucifer.
Kyle is an award-winning musical comedian and science communicator (winner, Famelab UK 2016) who takes a borderline perverse enjoyment in using any platform possible to preach the good word of mathematics. He has performed musical/comedy maths shows at various events, such as Cheltenham & Manchester Science festivals, Blue Dot, Green Man, Camp Bestival, London Science Museum, Edinburgh Fringe & various other festivals. He is a regular contributor to Radio 4’s flagship numbers show ‘More or Less’ and the Today programme’s puzzle of the day.”
I have been a fan of Kyle D Evans for over 12 years, since his days in the bands The Dawn Chorus and The Retrospective Soundtrack Players. He’s worked with Frank Turner, Chris T-T and Ben Marwood. Kyle has recorded albums based upon The Catcher In The Rye, Cool Hand Luke and even a Dickens-themed Christmas album. He’s also a mathematics whizz, and has written a maths book for children. Think maths, music and humour can’t possibly mix? Come down to the Courtyard at 8pm on Monday 9th December and see how.
This show is suitable for adults and older children, especially those studying GCSE or A-level maths, when accompanied by a responsible adult.
Tickets from the Courtyard. £3 in advance, £5 on the door.
All profits from this event will be donated to the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
