Journalism: Comedy conference?

Melbourne this week hosts not only the science journalism conference; there is a comedy convention just down the road. On leaving the hotel last night to go to a networking event I was stopped in the hallway by another guest who asked if I was part of the comedy conference.

I explained that I was actually part of the science one and thanked her for the assumption, based on the way I look, that I’m a comic and not a scientist. Now I come to think of it I’m not sure which is more flattering!
