Question: What science or maths qualifications does the comedian Dara O’Briain have?

Answers: While still living in Ireland, Dara studied theoretical physics and mathematics at the University College, Dublin, though we don’t know his exact qualifications.

Although you wouldn’t guess this from watching Mock the Week, the stand-up has recently expressed his more academic side on such TV shows as the BBC’s Stargazing Live and Dara O’Briain’s Science Club plus Dave’s School of Hard Sums.

Science Club returns to BBC Two for series 2 at 8:00 PM on Thursday 25th July, 2013.
