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.

This month, the show welcomes Professor Andrew Pask as their special guest speaker

 

The Tasmanian tiger (or thylacine) is extinct. The last known live one was captured in 1930, and when it died in 1936, the species was believed lost to the world. That is, until our guest Professor Andrew Pask came along. Andrew is working to de-extinction the thylacine. It’s like Jurassic Park, but real, and hopefully with less chance of humans being hunted. Andrew is Professor of Biosciences at the University of Melbourne, where he leads the Thylacine Integrated Genetic Restoration Research (TIGRR) Lab.
