About Dean: The UK's only stand-up comedian who is also a Doctor of neuroscience (as far as he knows), Dean is a prolific writer, performer, amusing video maker and more, in between correcting his PhD thesis and looking for more research work. Having performed with legends such as Simon Pegg, Jo Brand, Russel Howard and Michael McIntyre, Dean is a thoroughly experienced comedian, but 10 years of neuroscience has not left him unscathed, and everything he does has the scientific (i.e. geeky) edge. Having already given several "humourology" lectures on his You Tube channel, his latest, on intelligence, is a Geek Pop EXCLUSIVE made especially for the festival. >>> You can read Dean's series of letters 'From Science' at his website.
