If nerds are the new hunks then the charming Lieven Scheire was set to win heads and hearts with his unique non-fiction stand-up. Scheire takes little concepts like, oh you know, Einstein’s’ theory of relativity, and discusses them in a way that leaves the audience in fits of laughter. A hilarious genius if you will.
Lieven is a big deal in his native Belgium—He’s the nation’s ‘Science Communicator’ and his TV science-show Scheire’s Barn is being broadcast on VRT, Belgium’s national broadcaster. He is also a weekly guest on popular Dutch TV show Guinea Pigs.The QI team are fans, having twice invited him to the ‘No Such Thing As A Fish’ podcast with the QI-elves.
When it comes to his stand-up, Scheire regularly performs to 1000+ seaters in Holland and Belgium, sometimes venturing as far as Spain or Switzerland (he was top of the bill at the first CERN comedy festival in Geneva last summer)…
In 2015 Lieven made his Edinburgh Fringe debut with a sold out run, but he is no stranger to performing in the UK, at high-calibre gigs such as the Barbican’s Wikipedia-festival, or the ‘Pint of Science’ tour, which brought him to universities in London, Oxford and Cambridge.
The AutoSens Awards are set to be an excellent evening and a fantastic way to celebrate everything that is great about the automotive sensor technology industry.
This year’s ticket price includes the Awards ceremony, a glittering evening of entertainment at the iconic Atomium venue, a three-course dinner, science-themed comedy from Lieven, table entertainment, an attendee goodie bag and free flowing drinks throughout the night.
