Jonny Berliner

Science troubadour and pioneer of geek pop. Educator, songwriter, playwright, musician

Science troubadour, Jonny Berliner, is a pioneer of the Geekpop genre. His unique geeky brand of comedy science songs were originally commissioned for the Guardian Science Podcast and have now been sung in all sorts of scientific places.

He’s sung about DNA at Cambridge's Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Michael Faraday at the Royal Institution, and the Higg’s boson at the LHC! He’s performed alongside Robin Ince and Brian Cox at the Hammersmith Apollo, been the warm up act for Richard Dawkins, been featured on the Radio 4 Rambling Show, and played science festivals up and down the country.

Jonny is also an experienced science educator in the formal and informal education sectors, a playwright who has penned straight plays and musical comedies for both adult and young audiences and a versatile multi-instrumentalist.

We’re going sub-atomic this festive season with a quantum physics-themed science cabaret that will be out of this universe – and possibly out of several parallel universes too. All I Quanta Christmas features time-travelling Santas, carols with a quantum twist, particle poetry and music from pop science troubadour Jonny Berliner. Watch our dazzling group of acts wrestle with light-particle duality and red-nosed reindeer in a stupendous and unique evening of performances that would make Max Plank proud.
