Longtime Boing Boing friend Adam Savage is best known as the guy behind tested.com and the co-star of TV’s beloved ‘Mythbusters.’ He’s also a Boing Boing TV guest and fellow nerd traveler we’ve admired since our ‘zine days.
Adam is teaming up with YouTube star Michael Stevens (Vsauce) for ‘Brain Candy,’ a live touring explodey sciencey show that promises “crazy toys, incredible tools and mind-blowing demonstrations for a celebration of curiosity that’s an interactive, hands-on, minds-on theatrical experience like no other.”
Adam and Michael’s Brain Candy Live will travel to 40 U.S. theaters from March to May 2018.
The tour announcement describes it as “a two-hour play date with Walt Disney, Willy Wonka and Albert Einstein,” and I trust they’ll truly deliver. I can’t wait to see the show, and plan to more than once. Join me.
The tour is scheduled for a three-month run opening in Bloomington March 6th, 2018. Now in its second year these two explosive minds bring their version of an interactive, hands-on, minds-on theatrical experience to cities across the US.
