Dr Phil’s shows are not your average science lecture. Strap in for explosions and experiments, and get ready to cheer, laugh and sing along.
There maybe adult themes, childish pranks, and language requiring parental guidance.
As an MC, Dr Phil will keep your event lively, unexpected and even educational. Science is not to be taken lightly – rather, light-heartedly.
So, email Dr Phil now to book him for your next conference, pub night or VIP event.
