Australia’s favourite maths nerd is here to blow your mind with a few of his favourite numerical nerdities. What is the biggest prime number we have ever discovered? Are some infinities bigger than others? What can I do with a deck of cars that has never happened before in the history of the universe? All this and a bellyful of laughs in his first Tasmanian maths show ever.
