Award-winning stand-up comedian and science podcast host Shane Mauss presents Stand Up Science! Learn and laugh as local scientists, comedians and other special guests join Shane to bring you a one-of-a-kind show that is equal parts ahas and hahas.
What to Expect: As your host, Shane kicks the evening off with some of his best material on brainy topics, before introducing two local scientists to give talks and a second comedian to deliver their most cerebral material. At the end of the night, Shane brings all the guests back onstage for a panel discussion led by audience questions.
