Brian Malow on MicrobeWorld

One of my favorite places to perform is the Marian Koshland Science Museum of the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C.

I’ve performed there annually for the past three years. (I’m admittedly partial to any place that has me back even once 🙂

The first event, in 2006, was called Rational Comedy for an Irrational Planet. It was a grab bag, a best of, a greatest hits of my science routines. The classics. No particular theme, just science comedy.

When they invited me back, my contact there, Amy Shaw, asked if I could do a new show to go along with their exhibit on Infectious Disease.

Yes, in what may be a first in comedy history, she actually asked me to create an infectious disease-themed comedy show. Why not?

So of course I did. That became Science Comedy: It’s Infectious!

The American Society for Microbiology got wind of the scheduled show, and Chris Condayan (Manager of Public Outreach) arranged to videotape it and interview me. The result was episode 5 of their surprisingly popular podcast, MicrobeWorld … further evidence of my knack for landing the strangest credits of any stand up comedian.

“Oh, you got Letterman and a mention in Variety? That’s awesome! I got MicrobeWorld! And Chemical & Engineering News is doing a profile of me!”

It’s a living.
