'Just Enough Doctorate To Perform’ (JEDTOP) is a programme that combines science with improvised comedy. The premise of JEDTOP is simple - scientists, engineers or academics talk about their area of expertise, forming the inspiration of a number of comedy improvisation games themed around the science discussion. The twist is that our experts participate in the improvisation games too!

In this episode of JEDTOP we are joined by University of Surrey’s Professor Jim Al-Khalili, Dr Suze Kundu and Dr Radu Sporea for an evening of science and improvisation!
