Smart meets silly in The Peer Revue, where cutting-edge research fuels improv comedy.

Each month a different superstar researcher tells stories from their research, which will inspire a cast of talented improvisers to create brand new, unscripted comedy.

The Peer Revue is a hilarious celebration of science, philosophy, history, art, and all things academic. You’ll laugh, and you also might learn.


Chemistry can be scary, with all the symbols and Latin names for things. Chemicals can be scarier, and even deadly. On the other hand, nature is often regarded as good and wholesome. But is it really so? To help us find out we have our February guest Professor Luke Henderson. With a decorated career (including a stint at Oxford), Luke is now a professor of chemistry at the Institute for Frontier Materials at Deakin University where he invents unnatural new things. His work has attracted over $30,000,000 in funding from a range of sources including Rolls Royce, the US Air Force and the Australian Government Department of Industry. He is also a theme leader and foundational lead of the Australian Composites Manufacturing CRC funded in 2023 for $250M.
