Brilliant, cheesy, entertaining...and informative!
21 September 2017 | by saechedSee all my reviews

Disclaimer: I currently work as a physics researcher, so perhaps I should be offended when floppy Cox does his inebriated teenager 'guys isn't the universe amazing' shtick, but with this I couldn't help but laugh!

Brian Cox returns with his tuneful pal, Eric Idle of Python fame, plus a host of celebrities to put a musical spin on his usual lecturing style. Peppered throughout the hour of light entertainment are comic songs, informative interludes and a host of performances from many recognisable faces. The program takes on a similar studio/sketch show style to Morecambe and Wise - with these two stars brought back to life by two impersonators - with a live band and all the trimmings.

Although slightly out of place on the cabaret stage, Cox once again proves himself a skilled teacher with his usual insightful explanations. Sure, some of his jokes are cheesy and a bit forced, but he performs around more seasoned actors with surprising skill. He is joined by Monkey Cage collaborator, Robin Ince, who also brings his comic background to the party.

The rest of the cast feature 'old hands' such as Warwick Davis and Hannah Waddingham, who clearly seem to be having a good time with the pieces. Again, there are some jokes that fall flat, but overall the cast pull together a fun and enjoyable evening of physics.

Highly recommended, but don't take it too seriously!
