Zombie Science: Genes of the Damned
"You won't survive a zombie outbreak if you don't know your science",
explains Doctor Smith, "All the crossbows and machetes in the world
won't help you when your brain's turning to goop because you
underestimated the importance of washing your hands after having a wee."
Genes of the Damned is the fourth show in the Zombie Science spoof
lecture series, which has attracted audiences of over 36,000 at more
than 400 lectures across the UK and Ireland - including sell-out
performances at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival and Edinburgh
Taking its cue from today's popular zombie "documentaries" and records
of historical epidemics, this lecture considers who's most likely to
become a zombie, contemplates the ethics of dealing with the infected
and concludes with how stem cells might be used to treat the survivors.
Presented by a Theoretical Zombiologist and featuring a multimedia
presentation with audience participation and multiple choice quiz, the
outcome of the show will be decided by the audience ... how will you
deal with the Damned?
