The multi-award-winning No Such Thing As A Fish team are back on the road, with their first tour since 2019! Nerd Immunity is calling into Exeter as it takes in venues from Brighton to Belfast, Cardiff to Canterbury, and Inverness to Ipswich, with an international stopover in Dublin and a one-night-only performance at the London Palladium.
Every show will feature a live recording of a podcast episode plus a first half stuffed to the gills with facts, comedy, and two years’ worth of pent-up nerdery that wouldn’t have worked over Zoom.
Since NSTAAF began in 2014, it has racked up over 300 million downloads, toured the world, and spawned three bestselling books, two BBC TV series and one exclusive-to-vinyl recording.
A million times a week
The show by Dan, James, Andy and Anna – four of the researchers behind BBC2’s QI – is routinely in the top 10 podcast charts on iTunes and is downloaded a million times each week. This March the team raised over £175,000 for Comic Relief with a 20-hour marathon podcast featuring 35 guests, from British stars like Michael Palin and Carey Mulligan to international legends including Tim Minchin and Hannah Gadsby.
Out of the house
The NSTAAF team said: “We’re so glad to be not only getting out of the house but going all over the country, spreading the word of unbelievable facts wherever we go. Subject to government guidelines, there’s no stopping us.”
