Non-Zero Support
$1.11
per month
The "non-zero support" level. I appreciate any support > 0, and know a lot of people cannot afford much more than epsilon dollars. So for $1.11 you get my cash-invariant appreciation, access to my patron updates and a free high-five collectable in person*.

*See me at a show or public event and shout "high five" while holding up a hand. Please have the necessary paperwork to prove your patreon support in the other hand.
Irrational Support
$3.14
per month
The "irrational support" level. As well as patreon updates and high fives you get regular videos of me talking about recent videos, answering questions emailed in by irrational supporters and deleted scenes from my videos.
I’ll also email you a christmas card once a year. You can print it out at any scale you fancy. But if you print it with the wrong aspect ratio I WILL HUNT YOU DOWN.
Overly-Irrational Support
$6.28
per month
The "overly-irrational support" level. Honestly, this is just for all the people who go on about how τ > π. Aka 'people who are wrong'. If you give me tau dollars/month, you get exactly the same as the pi people but occasionally I will email you a new photo of me looking disappointed with you.

About

I am an ex-highschool-maths-teacher and current stand-up comedian and mathematics author. In addition to my occasional appearances on the BBC, Discovery and Numberphile (all of which I love and will keep doing), I believe that my own regular videos and the online community which nucleates around them are a valuable resource for getting people into mathematics and keeping them there. If you believe that as well, you can help make it happen.

Mathematics videos on youtube are important because they inspire proto-mathematicians who are otherwise being ground-down at school. And they give people bored at work something to watch during lunch. But making good videos is time-consuming and expensive.

Thanks to the incredible support of my Patreon people the Stand-up Maths channel (which started as a hobby with cobbled-together kit) is now a sustainable part of my life. And the more support I get: the more of my life it takes over.

With every new supporter I can get better equipment, dedicate more time and ultimately do more ambitious projects. But as always, watching and sharing the videos is the best support, so don't feel peer-pressured into giving me money you don't have. The videos will always be free for everyone, and with as few ads as possible.
Goals
1,356 of 3,141 patrons
The π Army. If we hit pi-thousand supporters I'll film myself thanking everyone (in a random order). If I can keep it down to about 5 seconds per person that will be a mere 4-and-a-bit hours of my life.
