Am I the only one who found it to be a bit of a damp squib? I could tell that a lot had been edited out, but much of what was left in was a bit too ... I don't know... earnest.

Me too.
A few bits were funny and genuinely good entertainment, such as Brian Cox's bit. In fact his "act" was superb, but then he's a gifted old pro at this sort of thing. A few bits were earnestly cringeworthy, such as the guitarist singing his ode to evolution. I'm afraid the band looked and sounded as if it consisted of volunteers who'd brought an instrument along that night (though the trumpeter sounded like he knew what he was doing). On the other hand it was heartening to see so many nerds in one place on and off stage being together and having a good time.
