Ugly Committee (Our Acts)

@simondwatt Simon Watt is a biologist, writer, science communicator and TV presenter. He runs Ready Steady Science, a science communication company committed to making information interesting and takes science based performances into schools, museums, theatres and anywhere else that will have him and has performed live to well over 100 thousand people. As a writer he has written for national newspapers and websites including The Times, The Sunday Times and the Daily Telegraph. He is perhaps best known as a presenter on the BAFTA winning documentary series Inside Nature's Giants and lead presenter on the Channel 4 special, The Elephant: Life After Death.

So, this is how it works.

Each night has about six acts and an MC (president for life, Simon Watt). All the comedians have ten minutes to humorously champion an endangered ugly species of their choice and convince the audience that their animal should become the society’s emblem. At the end, the audience votes for what is to become the local branch’s mascot.

The Ugly Animal Preservation Society has been lucky enough to have had quite a range of wonderful people standing up to champion an ugly endangered species so far. Here are some of our performers.
