Lieven Scheire is comedian, physicist, and science communicator, on stage and on television, in Dutch and English. He started the comedy group Side Effects with his cousin, while studying physics at the University of Ghent, which resulted in theater shows and television programs. He made successful television programs for Belgian national television, all featuring humor and science in equal parts. In Team Scheire, he recruits a team of engineers, designers, scientists, and programmers to invent creative solution for handicapped people that are unable to fully enjoy their lives.

He has been touring Belgium and the Netherlands since 2018 with his show Live in Nerdland: DNA, an entertaining theater lecture about human genetics and how this soon will impact and change our lives in radical ways.
