Expression of Interest to be a guest for The Peer Revue
The Peer Revue is a comedy show where we feature a new academic guest each month. The academic talks about their research, which a team of improvisers use to fuel comedy, all in front of a live audience at the Improv Conspiracy Theatre in Melbourne. We've had PhD students to senior professors, diverse disciplines from art history to architecture to biology to psychiatry, and we've been featured in Australian and international media.

We are always looking for new guests who are open to having an on-stage chat with our team of talented improvisers, so if you're an academic and interested then please fill out this form. There’s no expectation on you to prepare anything or to be funny, just interesting and accessible. Our improvisers are supportive and interested in research and helping bring it to a broader audience. And while we always find the funny side to research, we never disrespect our guests or their work, and there’s no hecklers or anything like that.

Does this sound like you? If so, fill out this form. If you're unsure or have any questions, please email the show's producer, Professor Phillip Dawson at We offer free double passes to any academics considering coming on the show.
