*SOLD OUT* Stand Up Science with Shane Mauss
October 21, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Stand-up Comedians + Scientists + Beer = Stand-up Science
Comedian and science podcaster Shane Mauss presents a show that combines some of the best insights from interviewing 200 scientists to explore our behaviors, traits, and search for meaning. Joining him will be performances/talks from local professors and stand-ups in a show that is equal parts ahas and hahas
Funnier and edgier than a TED Talk and smarter than traditional stand-up, Stand-up Science combines the best elements of these two worlds PLUS Q&As where you the audience get to be involved!
Stand-up comedy sometimes caters to the lowest common dominator and doesn’t respect the intellect of the audience. Science can sometimes come off as intimidating or unrelatable. Stand-up Science is a show that is thought-provoking yet accessible. Not only will you leave feeling smarter after a night of laughs, but you’ll have take-aways to foster more stimulating conversations at home, work and in your social and dating lives.
Milwaukee Comedy Presents: Stand Up Science with Shane Mauss! Sunday October 21 at The Underground Collaborative 7:00pm Doors, 7:30pm Show $12 Pre-sale $18 Day of Show

“Mauss has clearly found a popular niche in his natural fascination with the human mind. However, attendees should be forewarned: The show is still going to kill you with laughter.” – Austin Chronicle
“Experience with a variety of comedic techniques and interactions with renown science experts have molded Mauss into a well-rounded and imaginative performer. Mauss strives to perform thematic, laugh-out-loud comedy, interjecting science in bold, innovative ways.” – EU Jacksonville
