 A Comedy of Maths Errors with Matt Parker

Stand-up comedian and mathematician Matt Parker visits The Dukes Playhouse this autumn with his comedy of maths errors, Humble Pi.

Regularly appearing on TV and online, as a presenter on the Discovery Channel Matt’s videos have been viewed over 85 million times.

After calculating the number Pi live on-stage to a sold-out audience using a real pie in 2018, Matt Parker is heading out on a UK tour this autumn, visiting the Lancaster Theatre on Wednesday 20 November 2019.

Humble Pi explores the greatest mathematical near-misses and mishaps involving planes, bridges, the internet, big data and more. Being wrong has never felt so right.

His best-selling book of the same name was released in March 2019 and became the first ever maths book to be a No.1 Best-Seller.

Audiences can expect to be shown the bizarre ways maths trips us all up in this comedy show that’s not afraid to show its working out.

No stranger to The Dukes, in 2017 Matt performed on The Rake stage in Festival of the Spoken Nerd: You Can’t Polish A Nerd.

Tickets are priced at £15. Concessions receive £1 off. Getting your tickets is easy as Pi. To book visit www.dukes-lancaster.org or call The Dukes Box Office on 01524 598500.
