Comedy for the Curious is a comedy panel show with a science twist. It is a comedy show where curiosity and stand-up comedy are combined. 

Each show comprises of three very different stand-up comedy sets all around the topic at hand. Host Robyn Perkins uses comedy to explore the science behind the theme while the comedian guests take a more light-hearted approach. 

The show also weaves in hysterical, personal (and often revealing!) chat while exploring the subject further and wraps up in our outrageously silly game that has you, the audience, compete against the comedians!

The show starts at 8pm (doors at 7pm) and runs for about 2/2.5 hours.  

April 21st: Scariness with host Robyn Perkins & guest comedians Dave Chawner & TBD

June 16th: Accents with Robyn Perkins, Dave Chawner & Greg Faulkner.

July 21st: CANNABIS with host Robyn Perkins & guest comedians  Jack Barry (Feel Good) & Wilson Milton

Comedy For The Curious Ticket


Comedy for the Curious is a unique comedy show where curiosity and stand-up comedy are combined. Now live and in person, the show sets out to answer some of life’s most interesting questions. Why are some people extroverted? Why do we like scary movies? What is better, Cats or Dogs? Strap in because this show has answers.

Each show comprises of three stand-up comedy sets that ponder the big topic at hand. The comedians then explore the subject further in a personal (and often revealing!) chat between them. The show wraps up with a silly game that pits the comics against the audience – for the ultimate prize (spoiler alert: it’s a coaster).

Comedy for the Curious has been running online for about a year and is now being delivered to live audiences. If you love comedy and have an inquisitive mind, this is the show for you.

Each month is hosted by comedian (and former scientist) Robyn Perkins, with two guest comedians (who are not scientists).
