Neil deGrasse Tyson is known for being a highly prolific scientist, sure, but more importantly he is the face behind the meme, "Watch out guys, we got a bad ass over here." Locals who have daydreamed of seeing the iconic face in real life are in luck: Tyson's coming to Cleveland.

Tyson, who is the host of FOX’s Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, as well as the StarTalk Radio and TV Show, has put together a space-themed show that he intends to bring to audiences nationwide, including those at Cleveland's Playhouse Square.

The show will feature a Q&A that "rivals the event itself" according to Tyson in a press release. For folks who have been toting around unanswered questions about the universe, don't worry, Tyson has got it covered. After all, he's kind of a bad ass.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 6 at 11 a.m. The show will be on Monday, Feb. 22, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. at Playhouse Square’s State Theatre. Tickets start at $42.50. Buy tickets at
