Show Information

Please note, unless otherwise stated, all of our performances are strictly over 18s only

Take one top academic, some dangerous ideas, add one comedian and it’s the force of nature that is the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas (CODI).

Hosted by comedian Susan Morrison, and now in its eleventh year, CODI is sixty minutes of rapid-fire research from some of the finest minds in the country.


To live longer we should avoid smoking and fast food, but what if other people are slowly killing us? Dr Mhairi Bowe (Heriot-Watt University) explores the dangers of other folks – fear, aggression, discrimination, and loneliness – and considers when people might be the key that unlocks a long, happy life. Along the way we will explore how psychology can explain why we like some people and can’t stand others, who’d help us if we fell over in the street, whose smelly shirt we are more disgusted by, and whose toothbrush you’d be happiest to share…?
