> Dear all at Durham LUG,
> My name’s Jo, and I’m emailing about Festival of the Spoken Nerd, the “resplendently geeky” (The Times) trio of sci-curious comedians coming to a theatre near you.
> The Nerds are touring from September to November with an all-new night of science, songs and spreadsheets: “You Can’t Polish A Nerd”. 
> For just 27 nights, stand-up mathematician Matt Parker, experiments guy Steve Mould and geek songstress Helen Arney will be putting the “oooh” into zoology, the “fun” into fundamental theorem of calculus and the “recursion” into recursion. 
> Since their last tour, you might have seen them on BBC2’s QI, or heard their Radio 4 comedy series Domestic Science. Their most recent live show “Just For Graphs” was seen by 15,000 nerds and non-nerds across the UK, received rave reviews and is available now on DVD and download.
> “Charm and perky curiosity is in its DNA” - The Guardian
> **** “Great, funny, clever... even the heckles at this terrific show are smart” - The Scotsman
> **** “The nerd show to end all nerd shows” - The List
> **** “Fantastic and funny… you don’t need to be a ‘nerd’ to enjoy this show” - Broadway Baby
> **** “Somewhere between Dave Gorman and The Big Bang Theory lies nerd-heaven… hilarious” - Latest 7
> This new show for 2017 is another great night of entertainment and we’re hoping to “spread the nerd” far and wide. 
> The closest dates to you are: 
> Sat 14th of November at Gala Theatre in Durham 
> The full “You Can’t Polish A Nerd” tour schedule with tickets links and interactive map is here. 
> We love to fill our audiences with people who appreciate a unique mixture of comedy, theatre and unashamed nerdiness, and we hope you’ll join us. Do feel free to cut, paste or forward this email to any​​ members, colleagues, friends and family who may like to hear about it. Most venues can arrange a group discount if you contact them directly.  
> Please note that the show is only suitable for ages 14+ as it contains scenes of multiple recursion.
> Thanks very much!
> Jo
