Brainiac Live! London Garrick Theatre tickets on sale now!

Don those safety goggles, kiddos! Having toured around the world since 2008, Brainiac Live! is heading to London's West End this summer for a strictly limited season. Based on the cult-classic television series Brainiac, this weird science show is packed with death-defying stunts, microwave combustions, dustbin explosions, and naughty experiments you probably shouldn't try at home. Watch from the safety of your own seat as you are taken on a wacky and wild ride through the crazy world of science.

About the Brainiac: Science Abuse TV show

Beloved entertainment documentary show Brainiac: Science Abuse first aired on Sky One in 2003 and was first presented by Charlotte Hudson, Jon Tickle, and Richard Hammond, and later by Thaila Zucchi and Vic Reeves. The show itself, which was created by Andy Milligan and Stewart Morris, would carry out a different strange experiment in each episode to verify whether certain common myths were true. Often times, said experiments involved creating an impressive explosion, all performed by their team of 'scientists' known as 'Brainiacs'. A common occurrence at the end of each episode was the complete destruction of a caravan vehicle. After 58 episodes on air, the bizarrely entertaining show was not renewed for a seventh series.

Braniac Live! West End cast and creatives

Brainiac Live! is directed by Andy Joice and also stars Joice alongside Rik Warren and Maggie Frazer. In a comment on the show's transfer to the Garrick Theatre in London's West End, the show's director Andy Joice expressed his excitement for taking Brainiac Live! back to the London stage after touring the show all across the UK and everywhere from Australia to Abu Dhabi.

Kirsty Davis2nd September

Absolutely brilliant! Can’t recommend it enough. Major disappointment was they didn’t pick me to blow up a microwave!

Amanda Howden30th August

Not only did my children learn & had fun us adults did too. My eldest now 22 said she loved reliving her childhood watching her favourite program for years back. & loved that 2 of the old scientist were still part of the show!!!!! I'd recommend this show for all ages!

Jill Hunt30th August

Great for my two granddaughters ages 8 & 10. They really enjoyed it and so did their mum and myself. Small theatre so easily able to see all going on. The presenters were great. Highly recommend *****

Ann Measor28th August

Under 10'section will get the most out of this show

Sharon Raymond26th August

So impressed with this show if only science lessons captured kids' interest like this! Please consider putting in more medical stuff thank you!

Hannah Lethbridge24th August

We didn’t make it to the show as I had an accident on that morning and wasn’t able to have a refund or rearrange the tickets, even though I called before the show to ask. Disappointed to have lost our money and tickets.

Allison Shayle22nd August

I haven’t ever seen my 9 year old grandson so animated!! It was a pleasure for me just to watch him enjoying the show. He loves science and this has only increased his love of the subject. Thank you for a great show.

Diane Jones22nd August

Fantastic show for the family and caters for all ages

Ms Saskia R Webster21st August

Meant for a very young audience. My 10 & 11 Yr old found it cringey.

Anders19th August

Value for money: slightly more expensive than a good visit to e.g. the Science Museum's shows. Overall fun. A few negatives: the show starts with a relatively unannounced loud bang which put my kids on edge for the rest of the show and overall reduced our enjoyment (had to keep telling them they don't need to constantly cover their ears etc). Also a larger than expected proportion of such a short live show consists of videos. Unnecessary.

Susan Cousins19th August

It was very good. We took our grand-daughter, age 11, she thoroughly enjoyed it which slightly surprised us, also she does not usually get too visibly involved in show but on this occasion she did.

Adrian Lovell19th August

Excellent interactive structure, but some experiments were basic and the duration could be extended 15mins to create more value for money. Brilliant show would take my 5 year old again.
