Speed... Mating...

Zoology meets comedy in this lecture on sexuality

A German zoology professor and an Irish comic team up to offer a lecture (complete with slides) on matters sexual, looking at how we compare with the animal kingdom. Great idea, poorly realised. Dr Maggio is everyone’s favourite lecturer – funny, knowledgeable and with a glint in his eye – but the show feels structureless, needs better jokes and more facts. Like an inexperienced lover, this 50-minute show leaves one unsatisfied and asking, ‘was that it?’

Surgeons Hall, 0845 508 8515, until 30 Aug, 8.33pm, £6 (£4).
