Last year’s Ig Nobel show at Imperial College London

The 2020 Ig Nobel Euro (and Brexitannia) Tour was scheduled to visit Imperial College London today, March 21. But alas, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 tour was truncated last week, after its first show.

As compensation, here’s video of last year’s Ig Nobel show at Imperial College, on March 16, 2019. The show concluded with the London premiere performance of the sea-shanty-enhanced version of William Topaz McGonagall‘s most beloved bad poem, “The Tay Bridge Disaster“:

The 2019 show was half of a two-event festival. The other half was BAHFest London—here’s video of that:

The Ig Nobel / BAHFest pairing (with a snazzy name: Peculiar) was going to repeat this year, today in fact, but COVID-19 got in the way. We have high hopes that the 2020 show can happen later in the year.
