Nesta and Science ShowOff have teamed up to bring you My Other Future, two evenings of comedy that poke fun at common visions of the future.

On the 4th of March at Sutton House in Hackney, nine show-offs will examine nine imaginary futures – from robot companions to living on Mars – to either big up or pull down. Steve Cross will be our chat show host for the evening, helping the audience decide whether to throw each future into Room 101 or onto Dragon's Den.

Show-offs on this night are:

  • Alistair Linsell - Nuclear Technical Tutor, EDF Energy Nuclear New Build
  • Ansgar Koene - Senior Research Fellow, HORIZON Digital Economy Research, University of Nottingham
  • Dan Williams - Software Developer
  • Ina Dimireva - Project Manager, InnoCentive
  • Lydia Nicholas - Researcher, Nesta
  • Toby Chambers - Masters student, Goldsmiths
  • Yasmin Ali - Development Engineer, E.ON

Doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 7:30. Click here for directions to Sutton House

The winner of each night will present their show-off at FutureFest, Nesta's weekend festival of the future on the 14 and 15th of March at Vinopolis, London.

The second installment of FutureFest Fringe: My Other Future is on the 11th of March at the Star of Kings in Kings Cross. Click here for details and tickets.
