One month from today: The 29th First Annual Ig Nobel Prize ceremony

The 29th First Annual Ig Nobel Prize ceremony will happen one month from today—on Thursday, September 12, 2019—at Sanders Theatre, Harvard University.

Some (but not a lot of) TICKETS are still available from the Harvard Box Office.

Ten new Ig Nobel Prize winners will be revealed. Their prizes will be handed to them by a gaggle of bemused Nobel laureates.

The theme of this year’s ceremony (though not necessarily of the things that win prizes) is HABITS. The ceremony will include the premiere of the mini-opera “Creatures of Habit,” about a visit to the (fictional, alas) Museum of Bad Habits.

The ceremony will be webcast live, as it has been every year since 1995. (Webcasting was more or less invented for that year’s ceremony. Our broadcast engineer in the early years was none other than Robert T. Morris).
