Dr. Bunhead's Receipes for Disaster
Played 8th - 23th October, 2005
Produced by Chae Lian & Richard Harding Gardner
Staged in The Actors Studio @ Bangsar Shopping Centre
 
Dr Bunhead's Recipes for Disaster After an explosive season in London's West End, our first science comedy, DR BUNHEAD'S RECIPES FOR DISASTER, blasted into KL for a dynamite two-week run at The Actors Studio @ Bangsar Shopping Centre. Presented by Malaysia Airlines and supported by Malaysia Oxygen, the "resident scientist" of Sky TV's "Brainiac" television programme, Tom Pringle aka Dr Bunhead, delighted both children and adults alike with his unusual combination of science trivia and stage comedy. He also re-created his Guinness World Record-winning stunt of making the fastest potato chips in town!
 
CAST
Charicature of Dr. BunheadDr. Bunhead (aka Tom Pringle) has worked professionally as a freelance science communicator since 1996, developing and broadening both public understanding and enthusiasm for science, bringing it out of laboratories and into classrooms, theatres and TV. He has written and presented material for BBC, ITV, Discovery, Disney, New Zealand TV and a few more not well enough known to impress anyone.

He writes and presents educational material, for primary through to post-grad level, for many organisations such as The British Council, Royal Institution, BBC and BP.

The Bun has delivered over 1,000 shows at more than 400 venues worldwide (UK, Brazil, New Zealand, Australia, America), with sell out performances at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, science festivals, arts festivals, theatres, arts centres, pubs... (you name it).

For older audiences he provides seminars in creative approaches to communicating complex ideas (not just science) in addition to In-Service training for teachers. He also does adults-only shows, like "The Filthiest Show on Earth" and "The Chemistry of Love & Lust" (extracts of which were shown on Discovery Channel's 'The Sex Files').

When he's not working too hard, he goes rock-climbing and cycling (but not at the same time). He likes milk but no sugar, and a couple of biscuits would be nice (preferably chocolate).

MAKING SCIENCE FUN
