Science Comedy Queen Helen Keen loves space rockets. She brings their story to life with a fusion of stand-up comedy and tinfoil in her award-winning show.
Join her joyful exploration of stargazing, space-racing, the boundless possibilities of an infinite universe. With Space Nazis! Satanists! And Aeronautical Engineers! ‘It Is Rocket Science!’ will take you on a whistlestop tour around the Great Brains who put monkeys, ladies, dogs and gentlemen into orbit.
Comedian Helen Keen’s debut solo show, ‘It Is Rocket Science!’ won the Buxton Festival Fringe Award for Best Comedy Performance and extensively toured the UK & Ireland, becoming a huge critical and audience hit before being snapped up by the BBC. BBC Radio 4 has so far launched two popular and critically acclaimed series of ‘It Is Rocket Science!’ with Helen, also starring Peter Serafinowicz (Look Around You, The Peter Serafinowicz Show) and produced by Gareth Edwards (Mitchell & Webb, Spaced) and a third series has been commissioned for 2013.
“A sort of stand-up version of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” (The Times)
“Harnessing a sharp comedy sensibility to an arsenal of fascinating facts, she’s a treat for anyone who matches a sense of humour with an inquiring mind.” (The Guardian)
