Comedian and science podcaster Shane Mauss (pictured) will bring his inventive Stand Up Science Tour back to Cleveland in April.
For the shows, Mauss does a bit of stand-up at the event's start, and his special local academic guests then talk about science-related topics.
For the upcoming show at Hilarities, he's recruited Dr. Kristen Lukas, Director of Conservation & Science at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and an adjunct professor in biology at Case Western Reserve University, and Dr. Jeff Dean, a professor of biology at Cleveland State where his research focuses on the lateral line sense of African Clawed Frogs.
After the performances, Mauss and guests return to the stage for an interactive discussion and Q&A with the audience.
“It's funnier than a TED Talk and smarter than your usual night of comedy,” reads a press release about the event.
Hilarities will host the show. It takes place at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 11.
