This Funzing Experience:
So you’ve found a healthy, fertile mate, you’ve fought off your rivals and you’ve convinced them that you are what they were looking for. Sorted! But the reproductive race is far from over, my friend. We have entered the realms of Sperm Warfare. Come learn about the devious tricks used by cells, organs and bodies to win the race to fertilisation. Topics- evolution, sexual selection, sperm competition, reproductive physiology, mating systems.

Simon Watt is a biologist, writer, science communicator, comedian and TV presenter. He runs “Ready Steady Science”, a science communication company committed to making information interesting and takes science based performances into schools, museums, theatres and festivals.

He runs the “Ugly Animal Preservation Society” which is a comedy night with a conservation twist. It went on to find global fame/notoriety when it teamed up with the National Science and Engineering Competition to host an online campaign resulting in the election of the blobfish as the ugliest animal on the planet.


Venue: Trapeze, Shoreditch

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm
