Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas - live stream shows in July

Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas - now online during July 2020, streamed live from The Stand Comedy Club.


Take three top academics, three dangerous ideas, add one comedian and it’s the force of nature that is the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas (CODI).

Hosted by comedian JoJo Sutherland, and now in its seventh year, CODI is sixty minutes of rapid-fire research from some of the finest minds in the country.

Curated by the University of Edinburgh as part of Beltane Public Engagement Network and produced by Fair Pley, this year CODI moves online. The shows will be streamed live from the Stand Comedy Club starting on the 8th of July as part of The Stand On Demand.

Shows will be a live stream compilation format, with a live Q&A through the page chat box function.

Tickets cost a minimum of just £1.
