Iszi Lawrence

What's the talk about?

With great regret Nessa has had to cancel her talk. Stepping into the breach is Iszi Lawrence with her new show. Thank you Iszi.

Skeptic, comedian and voice of the Skeptics Guide To The Universe, Iszi Lawrence is at Eastbourne Sceptics in the Pub with her new show The Z List Dead List. The Z List Dead List is a live comedy show about obscure people from History. As a skeptic, Iszi has found a few that will peak your interest. Expect woo, violence, sex and death. And a competition.

The show is also a podcast with guest interviews from Jon Ronson, Griff Rhys Jones, Natalie Haynes, Neil Denny, Richard Herring etc. You can find it on iTunes here: or go to the website

Members of the Z list include:

Dr Joseph Mortimer Granville, 1833 -1900. Designed and patented a popular medical vibrator to cure hysteria.

Tycho Brahe, 1546-1601. Danish nobleman and astronomer. Discovered supernovae. Got his pet elk drunk, upstairs.

Mad Jack Churchill, 1906-1996. Made the last recorded kill with a bow and arrow by a British soldier. Fought WWII with a sword.
