Future Science Talks: Comedy Edition returns for National Science Week after three sold-out shows at the Sydney Comedy Festival.

Each show features six scientists who have partnered with comedians to bring laughter to their science talks.

Laugh and learn at the same time.

Just how much alcohol consumption really is good for us? Can science predict the next gen of emojis? And how is Australia leading the world in psychedelic therapies?

Come hear the answers to these questions and more from Sydney’s best new and emerging scientists.
