Dictators have fallen. Empires have been won and lost. Now Geeks rule the world. Combining spoken word, music and comedy, Hayden shows how the Geeks have inherited the earth. Staring longingly into the heart of all things Geeky, this is a show that will entertain you through our impending technological doom.

Media Coverage

‘I was treated to an unashamed peek behind the curtain of geekdom…Not only could this geek carry a tune but his songs were funny and cleverly written with some great lyrics… there were some spot on comments about the dark side of social media that will get you thinking… Age of the geek is a witty and inventive look at the geek lifestyle.’
Barry Nugent – Geek Syndicate

‘Cohen shows real wit and understanding….a genuine and likeable individual.’
Paul Cockburn, Broadway Baby
‘Cohen has a surprisingly good singing voice, used to comedic and genuine merit, and is a talented musician, too…

One of the most commendable parts of the show was his genuine and likeable personality… It was impossible not to warm to him and the subtleties of the performance that made the show so believable… Hayden Cohen is a very convincing geek and his age is now.’

Jessica Marshall McHattie – The Brighton Argus
‘a very clever series of geek-flavoured verse.’
