SCIENCE OF STUPID

Science of Stupid small logo
This show combines cold hard science with some of the craziest, most spectacular and painful user generated clips ever recorded.

Richard Hammond introduces all manner of mishaps featuring brave, if misguided individuals from around the world and then explains the science behind their failure and humiliation with the use of bespoke animations and super slo-mo cinematography.

Every episode features between 50 and 60 clips of misadventure
